If it doesn’t snow, I find few redeeming things about this time of year. It’s cold, dreary, and there is not enough sunshine. But I do love the sunrises. They offer up gentle, soothing colors – the palest of pinks, soft, powdery blues and grays, and undertones of peach and orange. Pale pinks and skin tones – a subtle but varied palette – are emerging as an important color collection in 2012 – 2013. While certainly relevant on the runway, these colors will also influence home decor - from textiles, to tiles and wall coverings, to marbles and granites for vanities. Enjoy!
