Looking to spring's fresh new array of colors, we've detected a lighter touch, hints, whispers, tints of color. Shifts to pastels without looking too 'candy', too 'Easter egg' which is an exciting color change. We've begun to see a movement away from gray to tints of blues, greens, lavenders and pinks. Pastels, softened and filtered, to lift the spirit but not shout too loud... colors that can make a room happy, flatter your possessions and your art. We call these the new neutrals.
This palette is a reaction to all the color cues that we have noticed popping up in the home furnishings industry, in textiles, carpets, wallpapers, tabletops and pottery, as well as color schemes that emerge in landscape design, the auto industry, fashion, and graphics.
As color rarely exists in isolation, color designers strive to create sensational new palettes that work together harmoniously. There is an art to sequencing color from one room to another. Hallways are the arteries of the house. Rooms radiate off the hallways. And a well thought out palette helps the transition because the colors flow seamlessly.
