What colors will be hot for spring and summer? Our we going to see the same old pastels for spring and bold colors for summer or are we going to see something different?
The colors you see for spring and summer 2010 depends a little on your region of the world. Every region has its own color sense and spin on the dominating colors for a season. For example, in Florida dark hues will never make it in the Sunshine State for spring or summer. We tend to want cooler, lighter shades because of our climate and lifestyle.
The runways are another matter! And the fashion designers are showing Mother Nature with stony minerals, fruity bolds, plus faded, washed out colors of sea greens, juicy oranges, stormy sky blues, and warm neutrals. Turquoise, parrot greens, and salmon pinks are quite hot. It’s like going to a garden party and being served fluffy cupcakes and cherry tarts.
Home décor and lifestyle colors for spring and summer include cobalt blue, tangerine, hot pink, serious purple, splashy blues, English garden greens. Pick a flower, any flower! Home décor stylists and designers are being inspired by roses, daisies, heather, mums, tulips, and begonias. Green and yellow are the blenders. Transparent colors are also very popular as glass is a leading material being used for accent pieces within every room in the house.
