spring/summer colour forecast


For years now I have been using the pantone forecast every season to see what is going to be new in the world of colour. No different this year, so today I want to share with you the pretty shades that we can expect to see all around us in magazines, shop windows and most importantly for us maker people…in yarn’s, fabrics, paints and other supplies.


For more than 20 years, pantone, the global authority on colour, has surveyed the designers of New York Fashion Week and beyond to bring you the season’s most important colour trends. One colour is chosen to become colour of the year…

…the winner for 2014 is…

Colour of the Year 2014

Radiant Orchid is an expressive and creative purple. A warm, yet sophisticated shade that sparks the imagination and draws you in with a captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones. A truly joyful and happy colour!
