Fashion Week In New York: Jewel Tones Are Beautiful

I don’t know how many of you are on Instagram, but it’s been fun following all the photos being uploaded by many magazine editors and bloggers from New York Fashion Week.  I’ve loved seeing the BOLD jeweled color predictions we’ve had the past two years trickle into fashion and home decor.

The fashion designers and furnishing manufacturers have taken note.  Bold jeweled tones and watercolors are here to stay.

At furniture market this year, I noticed so many jeweled tone colors being used, and we’re seeing these vibrant colors on the runways for Fashion Week.  Sapphire blues, emerald greens and canary golds will not leave us anytime soon!

Sometimes, it’s hard for me to convince clients to use pieces with vibrant colors.  But I think it can be important to the overall feeling of a room.  One bold piece is the eye catcher (conversation piece) to the room, and will help give the space an updated look.  I always like to stand back and look at the entire space.  It’s like adding a bold bracelet to an old outfit: These colorful pieces might not be with you forever, but they can add lot of color and fun to your life!

As most of my clients will tell you, I love fresh, timeless decor using bold accents!  Hopefully, after you see some of these beautiful pictures I’ll have convinced you to step out of your comfort zone and go BOLD:-)    X, Shannon
