We're in the midst of London Fashion Week! As the most stylish time of the year in the Capital, it's a great time to take inspired for our homes, too. To mark the occasion Pantone has put together a 'Fashion Colour Trend Report Spring/Summer 2019'. The report reveals a palette of 12 trending colours, which it expects to be gracing the runway as designers show off their Spring/Summer 2019 collections.
Where fashion leads interiors follows. This report gives us a preview of the colours that will dominate our homes next year. The colour palette includes vibrant, joyful and empowering hues that 'transcend restrictive seasonal definitions'. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, describes them as 'dynamic and vibrant without being overpowering.'
