PASTELS POPPING UP EVERYWHERE IN THE HIGH POINT MARKET (03.21.2012)

Everywhere there were pastels in the High Point Market. The light and airy appeal of the colors may have first graced the runway, but home lines are following suit to bring a vibrant, yet graceful air to interiors. In fact, many designers have already been infusing pastels into their work, including several rooms at last year’s Hampton Showhouse.

The two colors, Sweet Lilac and Tangerine Tango, were a part of Pantone's Spring 2012 Fashion Color Report. Tangerine Tango is the bold and energizing 2012 Pantone Color of the Year. Pairing it with a soft lilac creates such a balanced, yet vivacious combo. The two have a timeless appeal that reminds the viewerof the suburban glamour present in the 1960s – bright lipsticks, florals, and solid-hued dresses.

This combo also plays well with neutrals, be it chocolate brown or a brilliant white, allowing it to work in a number of spaces without giving an over-saturated appearance.
