Key Colors Spring Summer 2010

 

 Key Colors for Spring Summer 2010

  • Turquoise — cool and tropical, this delicate and feminine blue evokes memories of tropical beaches and cool clear waters.
  • Amparo Blue — a twist on navy, which traditionally represents spring. This is a livelier, brighter hue but still has the warmth of summer; a tone away from Fall 2009’s teal blue and not as harsh against the skin as royal blue.
  • Violet — the color of heather and spring blooms, violet, a cross between lavender and purple is a romantic, feminine gentle hue with uplifting properties.
  • Aurora —a deepish yet soft yellow with a slightly greenish hue, Aurora, according to Pantone, represents the first glimpse of sunshine as it rises over the horizon. A more weable yellow than brighter hues.
  • Fusion Coral — a warm pinky, peachy orange, the color of tropical sunsets and reminicsent of passion fruit.
  • Tomato Puree — the season’s boldest color in a classic, clean pinky red. This uplifting tone works really well with all neutrals or can be teamed with turquoise for a retro look.
  • Pink Champagne — a wispy combination of ivory and beige provides a subtle hint of warm color and provides a sophisticated blank canvas for almost any shade.
  • Tuscany — this warm pinky beige acts as a versatile base color, especially for violet and fusion coral.
  • Dried Herb –— a gray-green neutral base evoking memories of country gardens, a softer tone than khaki but just as versatile.
  • Eucalyptus — a versatile soft gray which will transcend seasons and provides an elegant backdrop to add dramatic pops of color from brightly-colored accessories.
Whether its uplifting splashes of color (Tomato Puree, Violet or Amparo Blue) or the safety net of soft neutrals which are accessible for seasons to come; forecasted colors for 2010 offer a more delicate variation to the traditional red, white and blue so often associated with the spring season.
