Fashion Makes Its Way Into Your Home With A Punch Of Colour

As the seasons turn, so do the swatches! With spring upon us, fashion trends are updating as well – and on the sales floor. Walking through a mall recently, I was struck by how many trends crossed over from fashion to furnishings. One of the biggest current trends is a punchy pallette – bold, saturated hues in attention-grabbing colours.

Tangerine is one of the “it” colours this season, and is showing up from head to toe, and Marni to Michael (Kors). We’ve got some great examples of it, like on the Piazza bistro set. While all shades of orange are making a stand, super-saturated colours in general are making their statement. Any shop that sells denim right now is almost guaranteed to have that “pant rainbow” laid out on one of their tables, and bright colours were a main point for the spring 2012 campaigns of both Gap (“Be bright”) and Calvin Klein. Urban Barn is featuring this trend with everything from toss cushions to lighting and everything in between. Our stores are bright and full of colour!

What else in our stores have you seen strutting down the streets?

  1. I agree with you, punch is the color trend. In the malls, I used to see tangerine color much. For me, tangerine color
    gives more appeal to my eyes. Today, most of the food stores used tangerine color to invite more customers.
