Just the other day I told Andrea that the color of the "peach" and "apricot" crayons from Crayola should be outlawed as wedding colors. We all have enough trauma trying to color our family as a kid with those awful crayon colors. It just never did look right. So, my friends...crayola peach and apricot are so OUT this year for weddings!
*as an aside, crayola now makes a set of multicultural crayons to color all the people of the world properly, thank you very much!
Let's talk about what's "IN" - what those new "IT" colors are...
The earth tones are here - mauves (think 80s), grays, greens - but not apple green, more the tone of our paperwhites "cryophase" color and olive greens. Bye bye to chocolate brown and hello "earthy" browns. These browns have more depth and feel very organic.
We will see more "dusty" tones to our lavendars, taupes, peaches and blues, greens, tans, grays and pinks. Just make it dusty and you'll be in style.
And of course, some of the brights still rule, like kumquat oranges, lemon yellow and fushia pinks.
What looks to be "out" (purely Sarah's opinions)???
Tiffany Blue, Chocolate Brown, Lime Green, Teals, Mustard Yellow, Bubblegum Pink (and I LOVE bubblegum pink - but its not dusty)...
Here are a few "hot" color combo picks for 2009 (purely Sarah's opinions)...
Plum and Copper
Plum and Pale Gray
Mauve and Taupe
Fushia and Taupe
Palace Blue and Citron
Kelly Green and Aqua
Kelly Green and Navy Blue
Lavendar (Wisteria) and Gray
Lucite Green and Gray
Earthy Brown and Olive or Celedon
What are your ideas, my humble readers (all two or three of you...)??
