Spring fever has arrived in the studio and the projects are exciting! Last weekend, I spent some time clothes shopping at my favorite Raleigh shops. The colors in fashion this spring are absolutely fabulous….bold, fresh, and exciting! The good news is that many believe that the bold colors are a sign of optimism for a new economy. I like their thinking!
A new trend is the combination of bold color without a lot of pattern, called Color Blocking. We’re seeing it in fashion (a lot) and in our interiors. The combinations are endless and the impact is huge.
We recently designed beautiful silk color blocked window treatments for a client and had to explain the concept. Well, it was validated when she picked up a magazine and sent a text with this picture. It made me laugh.
If you live in Raleigh, check out today’s News and Observer. The front of the Life section has spring fashion trends and there it is again…Color Blocking! So, as we being the spring season….enjoy the color, the economic optimism, and add a block of color to your home! Happy Spring!
