Colour Hive trends

Forecast two years ahead of the season, our trend stories feature original concepts and photography with colour, surface and pattern direction.

The global forecast is supplemented with expert observations and colour nuances for the Europe, Middle East, South Africa, North America, Latin America, India, Asia and Australia and New Zealand markets.

Print and digital formats are published quarterly in MIX Magazine.

Colour forecasts and analysis

We are colour experts. Our directional and inspirational trend colour palettes are endorsed by an in-depth knowledge of how and why colour families evolve, and how forecast colours are nuanced across global regions.

Because colours are rarely used in isolation, we analyse how their unique properties influence combinations, proportions and applications.

Colour families are tracked across four seasons as an essential planning tool.

MIX Magazine

Colour Hive forecasts are given context through editorial exploring the macro drivers behind the trends and brought to life with original visual concepts and photography.

Published quarterly in print and digital format, Colour Hive members also have exclusive access to the latest trend and editorial images, digital colour palettes and the MIX Magazine digital archive.

CMF forecast

Each season we take our trends to the next level with an in-depth colour, material and finish focused forecast two years ahead of the season.

Each 120+ page forecast features more than 250 fully credited images from directional designers and creators.

MIX Images

Unique concepts are best communicated through unique images, which is why unlike many other forecasters we create our own. 

Members have exclusive access to our trend images two years ahead of the season, in addition to our complete 2000+ image archive for selected download and print use.
