Colour Your World | #1 The Annual Colour Predictions

This is the first in my ‘Colour Your World’ series — talking about the Pantone annual colour predictions. As a designer, I’m always looking at trends and predictions — and my most favourite thing by far is COLOUR!

When the design world’s colour guru, Pantone,  releases it’s colour report for each season, it’s amazing to watch how these shades and hues filter down from the catwalk to the highstreet and influence — not just the fashion we’re wearing — but the way we dress our homes too!

The annual colour predictions for this spring are cool and soft with subtle warm tones.

Chalky and maritime blues and zesty citrus shades combine with leafy greens and natural tones to create a gorgeous palette; with colours that work well independently or alongside each other.

And just look how this has translated to the high street!

The following image is taken from the M&S website — it shows their new year highlights, for home-ware, and you can totally see how the Spring 2015 colour palette has influenced their buying team’s top picks.

Next time you’re out and about, shopping for new clothes, shoes or bits and pieces for your home, just notice how many of these colours make an appearance on the shelves.

Colour is such a tonic — it’s good for the soul. If you’re feeling a bit jaded by the winter, inject a little colour into your life!

One of these springtime shades will have you feeling better in no time.

Fifty shades of grey is so last season ;)
