colour-trends

Woops I almost missed posting this! Pantone has already published its fashion colour report and I’m sharing it just in case you haven’t seen it yet, so you can use it as inspiration or as a guide when shopping.

Emerald was part of the spring/summer report too, something I have found funny. I love all the colours excepting maybe Carafe, not for the shade itself but because I think it doesn’t play well with my skin. And of course… loving that Acai! Purple lovers unite!

Go Bright with Lime Green!

Bright colour is in and nothing says “bright” like Lime Green. Fun, alive and energized are just some of the emotions you get when using the colour Lime Green. Embrace it and bring some of this energy into your home! Check out how you can incorporate this colour into your home, whether it’s on the walls or in your décor and framed art.


Pull lime green from your framed art into the rest of your decor.


Lime green walls help frames pop off the wall!


Why not incorporate lime green into your entire home? Use decor accents with lime green, or choose a lime green mat for your custom framed art!

SPRING 2011 COLOUR TREND: CORALS!

One of the top color trends for Spring/Summer 2011 is coral. Coral comes in various hues, from a pinkish hue to a brighter orange. You might not want to wear coral from head-to-toe but rather pair coral with a neutral color, for example a coral blouse with white shorts as pictured. You can pair coral with bold color accessories such aqua/blue or gold,  maybe bangles, earrings or necklace.

You can also add coral to your look by just accessorising with the color by just doing the shoes, handbags, scarf or makeup/nail polish.
