As we look ahead to Autumn Winter 2018/2019 (AW19), we see a mix of natural greens and happy yellows. Neutrals act as the building blocks of colour.
For AW19, “we look at earthy natural greens from the forest. Olive to softer sage yellow greens will continue to emerge in seasonal palettes from winter transitioning into Spring. These authentic nature inspired levels of green compliment the dusty blues, sage greens and faded terracotta, representing a softer romantic palette.
With the interest of “green” living, it’s important not to overlook the basics- like recycled glass. Recycled material is not only environmentally friendly but economically beneficial. Green glass bottles generally contain over 50% of recycled materials and add a nice accent to home decor!
The colour of green seen and experienced in any outdoor space from hiking trails to fields, to parks and social outdoor gatherings can make you happier, reduce stress, and boost your mental health! It is a colour of simplicity, growth, and endurance inspired by natural surroundings.
As the most luminous colour on the spectrum, yellow offers mankind feelings of happiness and hope. CSI colour and trend experts took a look back at the youth movements of the 1970’s and were inspired by the hopeful energy of today’s youth, to predict trends in yellow that are seen in apparel, home interiors, and textiles.
Experts who study aging agree that creative hobbies like painting can increase the quality of life for seniors. Similar to the benefits the colour yellow provide to all of us, creative activities help activate the memory, encourage communication, enhance vision and build confidence.
In Autumn/Winter 2019 expect to see a surge in yellow from gold levels to bright sunshine shades both with a red and green cast that infuses the season with warmth.
Neutrals, as always, act as the perfect backdrop to inspired colours. Look to earthy, nature-inspired neutrals to blend with the Autumnal hues of natural greens and happy yellows.
