Colour Trend: Yellow

This week I have been mostly thinking about the colour yellow.

Here are some nice and ‘on trend’ examples of yellow which range from an optimistic, primary yellow to a more zesty lime colour. Often using a bold hue such as these would be visually overpowering, but combined with soft finishes and natural materials they become more delicate and approachable.

Keywords for this colour trend: Vibrant, Sharp, Zesty, Sour, Acidic, Bold.

Tommy Hilfiger satin dress, reflects the bold block colour trends for ss11.

Watch from  ‘The Lady Collection’ by Swatch in ‘Limetta’ yellow. Swatch are continuing their 2010 range of bold colours in a 360 wash over their products.

Jack Lalanne’s new Power Juicer Express in glossy yellow, as seen in the  Stylistmagazine this week.

Balloon table light by Uli Budde, uses a matte finish to soften what could be an overpowering shade of yellow.

Designer Philippe Nigro uses lemon yellow in his divans for  Ligne Roset.

‘Xistera’ by Samuel Accoceberry & Jean-Louis Iratzoki for Pyrenea , uses lime as an accent to freshen up the warm shades of grey in the upholstery.
