It’s hard to think of many color combinations we haven’t covered in our two years of doing color moods, but this may be one of them. Styling and designing in tonal shades of grey doesn’t come as naturally for us colorphiles, but can make an equally powerful visual statement none the less.
With silver being a shiny staple in many of the Spring 2013 runway shows, and with the winter holidays just around the bend, we predict the next few months will be rather shiny.
It was a little hard to edit this week’s color story only because it’s such a popular combination right now. Florescent yellow is seeing it’s moment in the spotlight, and various shades of silvery grey have become the perfect companion.. kind of the yin and yang of colors, in a way. It’s certainly a fun and energetic color combo, and it gives me a synthetic or futuristic vibe… like the colors of an industrial uniform in space. Or, come to think of it, the colors of my wedding dress.
Ringing in the first color story of 2012 with an appropriate dose of shimmer and sparkle. I find this time of year is always good for a bit of reflection, metallic or otherwise. Here’s hoping the new year brings amazing wonders to all of our friends and family.
We are so partial to color here at Aaryn West that even our neutral palettes end up with a few pops of bright hues. This week’s color story invokes images of a sunrise from the vantage point of the Mars Rover; metallic silvers combine with rusty melon tones to set a mood that is both mellow and energizing all at once.
