inspirations… colour trends for Spring/Summer 2010

Spring/Summer 2010 colours are all about soft feminine hues which are warm, tranquil and calming, energetic fresh airy vibrant tones, and delicate versatile neutrals which will transcend seasons.
Pantone's Key Colours for Spring Summer 2010

Turquoise
— cool and tropical, this delicate and feminine blue evokes memories of tropical beaches and cool clear waters.


Amparo Blue
— a twist on navy, which traditionally represents spring. This is a livelier, brighter hue but still has the warmth of summer; a tone away from Fall 2009’s teal/Majolica Blue, and not as harsh against the skin as royal blue.

Violet
— the colour of heather and spring blooms, violet, a cross between lavender and purple is a romantic, feminine gentle hue with uplifting properties.


Aurora
—a deep-ish yet soft yellow with a slightly greenish hue, Aurora, according to Pantone, represents the first glimpse of sunshine as it rises over the horizon. A more wearable yellow than brighter hues.

Fusion Coral
— a warm pinky, peachy orange, the colour of tropical sunsets and reminiscent of passion fruit.


Tomato Puree
— the season’s boldest colour in a classic, clean pinky red. This uplifting tone works really well with all neutrals or can be teamed with turquoise for a retro look.


Pink Champagne
— a wispy combination of ivory and beige provides a subtle hint of warm colour and provides a sophisticated blank canvas for almost any shade.


Tuscany
— this warm pinky beige acts as a versatile base colour, especially for violet and fusion coral.


Dried Herb
— a gray-green neutral base evoking memories of country gardens, a softer tone than khaki but just as versatile.




Eucalyptus
— a versatile soft gray which will transcend seasons and provides an elegant backdrop to add dramatic pops of colour from brightly-coloured accessories.



Whether it’s uplifting splashes of colour (Tomato Puree, Violet or Amparo Blue) or the safety net of soft neutrals which are accessible for seasons to come, colours for 2010 offer a more delicate variation to the traditional red, white and blue so often associated with the spring season.
Of course this are just trends and every colour is “in” since you feel gorgeous with it, that’s my two cents…
