Color Forecast, Part 4

Okay, so we are half way there and still plenty of good colors to go through. If you would like to start at the beginning, you can view Part 1 here. There are also links to Parts 2 and 3 there as well.

On to Purple......

The forecast for purples is that they will be deeply complex in tone and feeling.

The use of Faux Camaieux will occur again as mentioned for orange and different casts will be used within context of each other. 

Murky and neutralized hues will come to the forefront and we will see colors such as Elephant Hide, Weimaraner, Mouse, and Twilight used. Very grayed and washed out renditions of purple.

There will also be the addition of unexpected accents such as deep amber, copper, and rose used to spark newness to the color pallets used.

I think this will be a new direction for purple since the past few years have had a bit more vibrancy. I think that this new more upscale take on the color will be wonderful and I am looking forward to seeing how it is carried out in fashion and interiors. What do you think? Are you a fan of this more muted purple?

Next Week: Yellow
