Colour Trends Spring Pastels

On 10, Mar 2013 | No Comments | In Colour Crush, Trends | By patternandco

Soft sums up this trend, it is oh so beautiful!




More loveliness can be seen over on my Pinterest Board – Pastel Pretties including this fab sweater by Louche!  Isn’t it gorgeous!


I even tried out my own pastel colour palette for 365patterns*.  A bit of a different direction, rather than flowers and florals – geometric prettiness!

Trends – Embroidery Mexican style

New Trends – Mexican embroidery with its bold colors, animals, and floral prints. I love it, it fits well with all the whimsical animal prints around at the moment but vamps them up a bit and throw in the handmade element, it’s a perfect bright combination.

What do you think? Time to throw in a bit of colour?
