SPRING FOR PASTELS!

We’ve been working on a new collection for a major manufacturer so I’ve been looking at PANTONE’s color trends for Spring/Summer 2015 and pastels are popping up everywhere as you can see below…

When I mentioned the pastel trends to a group on women I was talking to, one woman said, “Eww, I hate pastels!” And I guess many associate pastels with baby colors and a very juvenile look. BUT, pastels when combined with creams, golds and silvers can look very chic, sophisticated and even ethereal as you can see in this gorgeous kitchen below…

These blue walls with a gold chandelier and pastel modern art create a lovely setting that just sings spring…

Pretty pinks combined with creams and gold are feminine and chic but not too sweet…

These pretty pastels are also a great counterpoint to gray and can add a luxe touch to any environment. You’ll also see pastels popping up in fashion and they’re a great way to lighten up your wardrobe after a long winter, plus they look great with a tan!
