It never hurts to have new sources of design and visual merchandising inspiration. And while a number of organizations publish new color palettes for the trendy, the Association for Retail Environment’s is among the latest to hit the streets. Being that they are color offerings from inside the trade, you might find them beautiful, well-researched, and best of all, easily and economically available. I leave that up to you to judge. At least the pictures are pretty.
