This Decade’s ‘In’ Colours

Every decade is influenced by its own palette of colours, there are a few shades that grab attention at a given moment more than others. Some are seasonal, whilst others are year-round, but all of them prevailed in this years’ ‘colour sphere’. They thrilled our creative glands and sparked our
inspirational fuses, shaking our eyes, hearts and minds; a visual bon appétit.

Named as Pantone’s colour of 2012, tangerine was a raging feature in the fashion world with its breezy summer dresses, thick wedge heels and oversized leather clutches. Not just a tangy citrus treat, this striking hue is fresh, young and invigorating. Tangerine dominated the sandy beaches this summer, featuring in bikinis, sunglasses and nail polish. As an excellent complement to gold, gemstone statement necklaces also adopted the tangerine craze which helped give a crisp shimmer to any outfit.

If you’re looking for the same freshness but with more soothe than tang, mint may be your colour. Soft, light, airy and cool, mint is a great colour for keeping outfits sharp and simple. The low key nature of this shade also meant it was a hit for brush wielding interior decorators. It’s a brilliant alternative to a dreary cream or white, yet doesn’t manage to drastically overpower the ambience of a room. The soft complexion of mint hued walls, rugs and bedspreads evokes a heavenly yet sophisticated mildness.

On the opposite spectrum, sandy brown’s versatility meant it was a huge hit this year. Blazoned onto tweed jackets, leather dress shoes and corduroy skinny jeans, sandy brown served as the perfect base colour for autumnal attire. Duvets and rugs also took advantage of the shades’ underlying luminance, emitting a vibrating glow of warmth and pleasure.

Taking more inspiration from restaurant delights, mustard yellow was a welcome guest to the chromatic palette of 2012. The shade was huge in the 1960’s when colour television and saucy hot dogs made mustard yellow distinct and electric. In its revival, it has woven itself into heavy knits and cashmere jumpers of our winter wardrobes. Sophisticated, elegant, and just that little bit different, mustard yellow is the perfect midpoint between sunny lemon yellow and rustic golden brown.
