A couple of weeks ago I attended a presentation held by Sherwin-Williams on Colour Trends for 2014. I’m pretty excited about the upcoming colours so over the next several weeks I thought I would post inspiration boards in each of the 4 colour categories presented by Sherwin-Williams. They are: Diaphanous, Reasoned, Intrinsic, and Curiosity. You can also find their detailed presentation at: www.sherwin-williams.com.
Diaphanous, in case you were wondering, is used to describe a material that has a fine, soft, and delicate texture so as to permit seeing through . A feminine and ethereal nature encompasses the colours of this category.
I interpreted this palette in two ways: the first, as exemplified below with soft, pastel tones…….
and the second exemplified below in a feathery, light and mystical mood:
My next post will look at the ‘Reasoned’ colour palette.
