Scorched Earth, Explained

With the Scorched Earth floral trend color of 2021, awareness is created of the consequences of climate change on our planet. Desertification is one of the many effects and forms the starting point of the color choice of this sustainability topic. A substantial alerting name such as Scorched Earth represents this effect and magnifies the shock wave the trend color is meant to create. The name of the color resembles the revelation of a place where problems lie. Our blind attack on the planet has changed the foundations of our living world. Desertification signifies the soil mortality of arid and infertile soil as a result of human activity. It leaves behind a scorched, mortal surface that once was.



A United Act For Global Awareness

By propagating a Scorched Earth trend color, each and every floral industry professional can join in expressing a growing need for solutions to climate change. It makes you stand still and reflect on the effects of the growing mortality of the earth's surface - scorched earth - and point our mutual ideals in the right direction. A need for progress unites designers and other endorsers from our floriculture industry. What better way than to put our hands together and create awareness by starting to design from an idealistic and sustainable-focused mindset?

This awareness and the need to express it results in the combined work of designers worldwide and collaborations throughout the floral industry. Their connection to, and their personal interpretation of, sustainability in the flower industry is what led them to their Scorched Earth trend color designs.


International renowned designers such as Timo Bolte, Solomon Leong, Per Benjamin, and Holly Chapple have translated their thoughts into a personal design based on this trend color palette. Industry professionals from all over the world contributed by either supplying flowers, contributing as an expert blogger or sharing their knowledge about this topic.
