The Pantone Color Lab asks its designers and manufacturers every year to set the trends. For 2016, the results of the blessed event were twins: pale pink and baby blue. Will this year’s posh living rooms and sleek dining rooms resemble the upstairs nursery?
Deliciously luxe, the Pantone Color of the Year for 2015 is a rich and inviting Marsala red. Like the flavor of this celebrated wine, Marsala fabrics are the result of three warm gem tones – oro, ambra and rubino. Shades of Marsala are a little spicy, combining shades of ginger, scarlet and deep mustard.
The Pantone Color Institute has just announced their 2014 Color of the Year winner. The decision for Radiant Orchid was based on global research and a system that investigates and translates trends into color. With fabric design, Radiant Orchid can be pulled in either direction along the color spectrum. The pink undertones work beautifully with yellows, golds, beiges and whites.
I love toile, that's pronounced...twahl...I dream about it. I even like saying it, it kinda rolls off your tongue. I'm a sucker for the quaintness of the scenes of lovers in gardens and children with their farm animals.
I'm always looking for new and different toile, specifically looking for one I haven't seen before. I'm partial to black and white, which was the original color they used in the making of this lovely scenic fabric. I actually wallpapered my master bath with black and white toile. I even covered the lamp shades and waste basket with it AND I hung drapery panels in my living room!
