According to the American Trend & Color Committee in its color forecast for the International Fashion Fabric Exposition held in New York City, Leap, golden shades with fresh greens; Muse, a medley of purples and pinks; and Play, bright tempered with camel as a neutral are the fashion-forward palettes for home fabrics. The committee identified six color palettes and 48 colors in its fall/winter 2004 forecast that included home fabrics along with apparel fabrics. Design motifs for Leap includes pine trees, maple leaves, acorns, and autumnal prints inspired by the English countryside. In Muse, the committee cited combinations such as dusty mauve and hot pink reflecting antique and Victorian overtones as well as rosy browns, pinks and purples as the new neutrals. Within the Muse palette, tonal stripes, glen plaids, wool flannel, pointelle, crochet, refined curdoruy and velvets are key fabrics.
