Spring 2015 Color Report From Pantone

Again, dreaming ofย spring in the midst of Winter…

Here is Pantone’s official colour palette for this year. I’m less enthusiastic about some of these selections but there are definitely some that will make their way into my crafting or home.

My evolving taste in interior design colours has me looking at the Pantone Colour of the Year, “Masala”. Shown here in various accessories, it’s easy to picture adding it into an existing colour theme.

Green is one of my favourite colours and it is a strong part of my decor palette.ย “Woodbine” is a lovely warm green that looks great in the treatment below:

Woodbine Decor Spring 2015

I like blue but have used it less in recent years. Our first little townhouse was decorated at the height of my love for antiques and the desire for an older home. Colonial blue and Wedgwood – and geese! Let’s not forget the proliferation of geese on everything ๐Ÿ™‚ – were colours that I loved then. Seeing “Dusk Blue”, which was a colour of the year in 2013 as well, used in more simple treatments and with muted greys and mauves; makes it feel much more current and for me, I love the natural feel it evokes.

There are great photos all over the Internet, showing creative ways to incorporate or reinvent your home and wardrobe to include 2015’s colours. My home is looking relatively stylish – in terms of colour ๐Ÿ˜‰ – nice for a change! I’ll be knitting and crocheting for the shop with an eye to some of the warmer palette shown this year.

What will you be creating in the latest fashion colours? ๐Ÿ™‚

Spring 2014 Color Report From Pantone

Why yes. We are already dreaming of spring. It’s a tradition here in the frozen north to be surprised that it’s so damn cold and pine for spring for the next four months.

So what do you think? Here is the official colour palette:

Here are a few decor applications that I rather like. Violet Tulip and Radiant Orchid being favourites right away for me. I am all about the purple, all of the time.

For knitting and crochet, I think it would be fair to say that with the addition of some shades and tones of “Paloma”, I will be able to be very current come the thaw. I’m sure there’ll be a new crop of patterns coming soon that’ll be showing some of these 2014 selections. Can’t wait!

Here is a great link that shows some of the fashion concepts that designers are envisioning for spring. Great mix of warm, cool and neutrals. It looks like there’ll be a colour for everyone next season. ๐Ÿ™‚

Itโ€™s in the Bag: Adding Emerald to Your Wardrobe

Itโ€™s in the Bag: Adding Emerald to Your Wardrobe.

Stumbled across this great blog today. What else are Saturday’s for besides knitting and surfing?

I adore green. It’s a great colour. Soothing, earthy and my yarn stash reflects my devotion. The colour of my eyes has nothing to do with my bias!

I’m inspired by the gorgeous bags in this post and thinking that a lacy, fichu or light shawl would be a perfect way to jump on this colour trend.

I’ll have to do some stash diving later today but…

Perhaps after checking on just… One. More. Blog. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cheers all, Have a great weekend! Kei
