50 Shades of Autumn……..

It is everywhere you look now, ” 50 shades of grey ” with a huge amount of  intimate detail  ( and soon to be chick flick )  and then we had ” 50 shades darker”, ah I admit to hearing about it but confess I did not read any of it ( well a smidge ) …….then I penned my “50 shades of fabric”,  now that is  a  passion of mine,  which is my version for the newest line of economic fabrics to arrive from company Froca and Rioma, with a rather nice looking chap in the ad I must add,  could he be a Mr Gray???,  so what are we doing for the Autumn with fashion and the home in the colour arena ? do we have 50 shades for home and fashion???
oh yeah baby , we have a plethora of beautiful shades to choose from, which are already hitting the shops , still in the midst of August and I am preparing my next seasons wardrobe ,  hasty!! I think not, and I will be prepared in my shop too for the ” accent” shades to bring the home  up the fore in the fashion stakes . Make some interesting changes to  your home decor with the subtle colour hues  and mix it up in a variety of textures,  with Pantone’s 2012 Autumn predictions , there will be  lush colour’s everywhere that will enhance any neutral backdrop of  ” beige or grey”  and bring some warmth to the cooler evening’s, and the colour’s  all sound good for the wardrobe too…..a little imagination! no problem.

The quirky color combinations of early ‘60s interior decorations — think Olive refrigerator and Pink walls

prominent colors

We are using two color stories that use bold contrast colors to really make our prints pop: Tangerine Pink and Black Polka dots on a Midnight Slate background or Citron Lime and Aqua dots on a Light Rust background

signature color

We are using bright accent colors, such as Tangerine Pink, in prints as well as color blocking details to add pops of color while keeping the palette warm and dark for fall

I love looking at interiors for fabric and color inspiration: I have a picture on my mood board of a room with Mint Green walls, Antique Gold accents and a very cool Bright Orange velvet chair; I also have an amazing picture of Helena Rubinstein’s bedroom — the walls are Bright Orange, the bedcover is Purple-ish Blue and the headboard is Gothic Black — love it!

prominent colors

Sour Citrus Yellow paired with Rich Jade Green and Fiery Red Orange — these bright tones are the perfect foil for the Medium Heather Gray and Camel neutral tones we are showing for fall; I am also pairing Fiery Orange with a Luminous Violet — it’s very baroque

signature color

Fiery Orange! — it is lively and delicious and brightens everything it touches

must-have item

A printed pencil skirt — I am loving this skirt right now and I want to wear colored and patterned bottoms

cosmetic accents

I will keep the cosmetics pretty neutral this season to play off the bright colored clothing; the fingernails will be metallic!

 

 

By playing to consumers’ practical side with versatile neutrals, and boosting their confidence with bold, spirited hues, this skillfully balanced palette has something for everyone.”   says Leatrice Eiseman
