Start the summer off with primary colours – RED, BLUE and YELLOW. Add a bright PRIMARY GREEN and you have the beginning of a beautiful summer. The primary colours work with NAVY in gorgeous stripes, dots or simple spaced floral motifs. Let’s move on to the hot shades on the colour wheel using every shade of orange and coral, gorgeous pinks from bubblegum to deep fuschia and warm citrus yellows. On the cool side of the colour wheel we see brilliant blues, purple, aquas and tropical greens.

Transition into Spring with soft (sometimes dusty) pastels. Soft pink, peach, mint, sky blue, butter yellow, lavender, lilac and aqua. Mix with deeper sherbet pastels for a brighter look or combine with neutrals like sand, dove grey, toasted almond and cinnamon for a more sophisticated look. As the season progresses pastels can work with brights or deep tropical shades for interesting contrast.

Colours of the Season - Blog Post

Here’s an early preview of the colours of the Colours of the Season Winter 2014-15. Click the swatches above to get more inspiration!

Winter Berries

Think berry shades…raspberry, blueberry, mulberry. Now add all shades of PINK to this pink based colour group and you have something new! A beautiful palette from light to dark with light petal pinks, fuschia and the deep Bordeaux shades of wine, oxblood and burgundy.

Green Works

When you think of a lush forest, what colours do you see? Every shade of green from light leaf green, soft dusty evergreen and aqua to deep spruce and dark teal. Team them up with gorgeous berry shades for a warmer feel, blood orange or honey mustard to make you think of autumn leaves.

Graphic Notes

Boy meets Girl with feminine looks in masculine colour. Mix with neutrals and add a jolt of RED to the usual black and black story for an outstanding look.  And don’t forget about grey; it’s still a strong neutral and works well with all the colours of the season.

Moody Blues

There is a full spectrum of monochromatic blues happening this fall from tranquil light blue, dusty delft blue, vibrant cobalt all the way to gorgeous navy. Whatever shade of blue you choose you will be in fashion…blue is a stand out for Fall 2014.
