In Living Color

“For me, people are color, flowers are color, food is color… And all of this is my canvas.”

Rosy Strazzeri-Fridman

 

People are talking about this year’s hot color–

  

Quoted from Pantone.com:

  A Color for All Seasons

Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it. While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.

LOVE THIS!

Last year’s color choice was perfect and this year is even better.

As a designer I especially love how Pantone and their color system and predictions/palettes affects the world of style, mainly fasion and home goods.

Color technology and theory is a really important tool in creating and planning. It’s amazing how color can influence and inspire. Thinking about or seeing a certain color can change our moods.

Seeing this color makes me think of blush, a garden, a tea party, comfort food and summer fun. It’s like a pink lemonade on a hot day or like a box of chocolates on Valentine’s Day. It is a color of romance and warmth.

I guess I should go thru my closet and see if I have anything this hue…

While thinking of color and how wonderful color theory is… I’m also shocked when I see colors go awry or a color explosion. Too much of a color or mixing of colors isn’t always a good thing…

case in point: Sally Hansen’s new invention- Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips.

Colors Gone Wild, eek!!!!!

Too much of a good thing
