I’m in Palm Springs at the Westin Mission Hills Resort. Years ago when I actually was a Sales Manager at Westin Hotels in Vancouver I wanted to stay here, and through The annual colour forecasting conference, I’m finally here.
Terreeia’s with me. Funny, she’s never wanted to go to one of my conferences before, but one day last month, I’m walking by her office in the house and she says “Have you booked your flight yet?”.
“Why don’t I come with you?”
Hmmm. . . Palm Springs. . . November. Kind of a no brainer.
So she’s golfing while I’m sitting in a dark ballroom, haha.
Here’s the homework for tomorrows meetings.
Take the top 3 colours from 2011 that were forecasted. Tell us how they were used in your industry and what colours they were paired with. How successful were they?
So here’s the ones I chose:
Blue grey is definitely hot. It serves as a background with other colours. I mentioned this colour in a post I wrote back in April.
I’m talking about this green because I just love it and want it to be super hot but in actual fact, it’s still hard to find designer fabrics in kelly greens, it seems to only be available in higher end lines even though this has been a hot colour for a few years now.
This cognac colour is EVERYWHERE this fall in furniture and fashion so this prediction was very accurate in my opinion. One of the first posts I ever wrote was about leather furniture and which colour was the most timeless 5 years ago and this was it.
Over to you my lovelies, after all, you are where we get colour trends from! It’s what you’re currently buying that wins and has some colours die and some live on and on.
