Last year cobalt blue was the colour. It’s still there but the trend is moving to softer blues like the new Cornflower, China blue and Sky blue. Actually, any shade of blue will do including chambray and denim. Softer blues are showing in all print groups. Geometrics florals, stripes and abstracts.Don’t forget about all important Classic Navy this season. It goes with any colour.

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.

IT’S BACK TO THE 70’S. Think suede skirts, funky patchwork prints, crochet vests, high waisted wide-legged culottes, calf length dresses, colour blocking, jumpsuits, platform shoes, and fringed jackets.

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.

Navy is classic, always on-trend and will be a staple colour for home decor. Leave the beiges and greys and instead introduce deep, saturated blue hues as a new neutral. It’s a versatile colour that pairs well with others.
