On Trend Today with Lanark's Kathy Wisniski: Color Focus - Brimby  Kathy Wisniski 

March 6, 2019 |

A light, yellowy-brown beige, Brim is a new golden shade that is nothing like you've seen in the past. More of a light chestnut or a tinted sepia, this hue is just what we need for our stressful, modern lives. Like a soft cashmere throw on a winter's evening, Brim is warm and cozy. With just a little greyed-out earthiness, this frosted amber shade is cushy and snug. Restful and new, Brim is a new tan for a timeless today.

January 16, 2019 |

In celebration of Pantone‘s Color of the Year, we’re crushing on Living Coral! Similar to a hue we forecasted back in 2016, Coveted Coral, we’re so excited to see it coming back again with even more vibrance and saturation. Embodying a bright pink hue with an orange undertone, feel embraced by the warm, yet energetic color of Living Coral. The engaging quality of this color encourages us to live with lightheartedness and optimism as we seek to connect with nature in a more meaningful way.

The warming trend of colors is mellowing out for a bit, but the pink trend is still going strong. This dusty salmon hue is soft yet strong. Inspired by Himalayan sea salt, stone and shells, this mid-tone color is warm and inviting. Paired with gray, ivory and white, this hue brings a natural patina to everything.

This month we are crushing on Purple Twilight, a dusty lavender with a surprising sense of spirituality. You’ll find this hue in the soft, glowing light from the sky when the sun is just below the horizon, creating a feeling of mystery and wonder. Having a cloudy appearance, Purple Twilight blends beautifully with shades of both pink and blue, making this color rather versatile.
