Color Report – 2011
by Nancy Stoltz with Creative Coverings
The Pantone Fashion Color Report for spring/summer 2011 is reporting an “exotic journey” with warm and cool color hues such as Peapod, Beeswax, Lavender and Coral Rose.
Color combos will be popular but the monochromatic look will still be a classy décor trend this year. Bold patterns such as damask, retro prints or even animal prints and faux furs are making a comeback. Glitzy fabrics with sequins, metallic trims and liquid 80’s inspired fabrics will be hot for special events and theme parties! From simple chic to shabby chic; the rules are being tossed out the door and mixing and matching odd color or design combination’s will be a fun way to surprise your guests. If you are looking for that organic look, faux silks, such as dupioni fabrics or denim can be paired with burlap or jute fabrics for a beautiful, yet minimalistic feel.
