Color Trends in Fashions + Furnishings

A Pantone Spring 2014 inspired Living Room:
my curated collection of What’s New, What’s Next

What’s New, What’s Next // September 19, 2013
at the New York Design Center

from Pantone’s Fashion Color Report Spring 2014

I was recently asked to curate a collection of trending products from the New York Design Center for their upcoming “What’s New, Whats Next design forecast event being held on September 19. What a fun assignment! Its currently fashion week in New York, so I chose to look to the color palettes being shown in the designers collections for spring 2014, since what walks down the runway usually ends up in our living room.

To begin my collection, I was inspired by a warm red cabinet from Grange that I discovered on the NYDC “What’s New, Whats Next” Pinterest board. From there I selected a roomful of furnishings from NYDC showrooms, including Dering Hall, that coordinate with my favorite four colors in this soft pastels paired with energetic brights spring 2014 palette. The four colors when used together are elegantly understated yet creatively confident. The furnishings share a classic look updated with a fresh and energetic vibe, creating a room that is both thoughtful and artistic.

The colors as described in the Pantone Fashion Report:

Violet Tulip, a romantic, vintage purple, evokes wistful nostalgia. 

Paloma serves as a quintessential neutral, interesting enough to be worn alone or combined with any color for sophisticated poise.

Sand, a lightly toasted and amiable neutral, conjures images of the beach and the carefree days of summer.

Cayenne, a high-pitched red, adds a dash of spicy heat to neutrals.

As a Blogger Ambassador for WNWN, my inspiration board will be posted in the New York Design Center during the September 19th new product event. It will also be featured on their Pinterest board starting on September 9th. Please visit it here and repin my board to share “Whats New, Whats Next!
