FRIDAYfinds! - FASHION COLOR REPORT for SPRING


Pantone, the global authority on color, 
unveiled their Spring Color Report recently to coincide with 
New York Fashion Week.

Why am I interested in this?
As I've talked about before, 
"FASHION AND FURNISHINGS 
ARE CLOSELY ALIGNED"

What we see on the runway now, will  make its way 
to the world of interior design in the very near future. 

In fact, much of this Spring palette is already showing up 
on fabric lines I have seen from my reps.

Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of
Pantone Color Institute, described the Spring colors like this,
"This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional 
and artistic equilibrium"

And the designers are having some fun mixing it up, pairing the soft pastels
with vivid brights to create a colorful balance, or "equilibrium" of their own.

How will these refreshing new colors show up in my industry?
It will be fun to discover...
and I'm sure they will be up front and center 
at High Point Market in October!

So stayed tuned for the latest, 
as I dig a little deeper into this color trend.

"EMBRACE THE JOYS OF GOOD DESIGN!"
