Reports of the latest home fashions from my favorite European capital are slowly making their way across the pond… Maison & Objet, the fabulous Parisian Home Show is on! I wish I was there, (perhaps next year!) but fortunately for us the lucky ones who are in attendance are madly blogging the feast of sights for the rest of us.
One thing that caught my eye when reading Apartment Therapy’s summary today was a colour swatch of the 2012 palette:

This is what they had to say:
“As usual, the Danish exhibitors led the way with new color trends; Both Ferm Living and Hay showed new ranges in similar palettes of pastel hues – pale salmon pink, icy peppermint green and soft pale blues and lilacs – with dark petrol greys and small hits of fluorescent colors. “
Those oh-so-chic Danes… It’s perhaps not a surprise that everyone’s favorite Jewelry from Copenhagen, (Trollbeads, bien sûr!) is way ahead of the curve, with these colours already appearing – both on our display at Tartooful, and in many of our customers’ beautiful creations.
At left, you’ll see the “petrol grey” and soft “pale blues” of the swatch, as well as crisp whites for a soft, light as air feel…
Remember this? This was my “icy sunshine” arrangement for my own bracelet over Christmas.. It features a delicate range of “pale salmon pink, icy peppermint green and soft blues and lilacs”…
This composition was made up on the Trollbeads workbench at Tartooful a couple of months ago… we loved the soft lilac, light blue, warm grey and snappy black & white stripes. Golden accent beads were an unexpected and elegant touch, elevating what otherwise would have been a casual look to something rather special.
And as for the black & white and touches of neon.. well we were inspired by that exact colour combination at the Autumn trunk show, when we displayed this stunning composition using graphically bold, Universal Uniques, a “Diamond Bead, black” and a brilliant, lemon yellow retired “Banana”. Ultra modern and tons of fun…
Les Beads… c’est chic!
