We wish you a very happy holiday and joyous New Year! We're just about ready to depart on an extended holiday break and are wrapping up the year in trends with a Gilded Bronze color story seen while trendspotting in NYC for our 2013 Christmas trend forecast. There's no better way to end another fulfilling and hardworking 2011 than on a note of golden tones and a shiny outlook for the year to come! To take a look back at our entire year of color, visit our flickr page for palettes and palettes of inspiration. See you in 2012!

We're winding down the working week here at Sphere Trending and gearing up for all our holiday events. To celebrate the last few days before we take some time off, we're sharing a few more of our holiday trendspotting finds. Today's feature - Paris Snow - captures a gorgeous color palette of quiet luxury blended with a refined rustic appeal from the various retailers throughout the city. We love the varying shades of white, cream and the palest of icy gray tones often seen in combination with raw wood, simple touches of metallic embellishments and a hint of hand-knit comfort. Here's wishing you a White Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The holiday windows were all shades of stunning loveliness at Bergdorf's this year... The mermaid blues and the ethereal whites turned their nature-themed windows into something spectacular for the senses! Enjoy!

It's that time of year again! Trendspotting abroad always gets us right in the mood for celebrating the holidays and what better way to kick it off with a dose of vibrant London Red? It's an iconic color for the famous city, from buses to telephone booths, and you can't help but smile when you see it. This year the Brits have taken country pride (and getting geared up for next year's Olympics) into a full blown holiday theme with this bright hue splashed across decor, textiles, paper goods, furniture and even the occasional modern chandelier. Happy Holidays!

It's that time of year again... Our teams are on the road, trendspotting in cities across the globe for our Holiday Design Forecast report. Here are a few stunning pictures from the Printemps Men store in Paris that really caught our eye. If you're out doing your holiday shopping this weekend and spot something great, please tell us about it, we'd love to hear!
