Manufacturers are shooting for the sky—literally—as the limitless space above proves to be an equally boundless design muse. Random patterns follow the daily cycle of fleeting hues and progressive intensities of light, beginning with the watercolor pastels of dawn. At high noon, fair skies give rise to Carolina blue, while stormy weather triggers clouds of splotchy gray. Sunset arrives in a blaze of orange and yellow, the color gradations and ombré effects ultimately transitioning to nighttime, when constellations gather against blackgrounds. Whether it’s a dreamy skyscape for high-end hospitality, or tranquil tonic for high-traffic retail, the sky’s the limit.
