“Nostalgic Icon” Blush and Nude Tones: Vintage, Feminine and Soft Reminiscent of the glamorous 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s, this trend pulls from soft shades of “barely there” to “a lighter shade of pale” pinks, which are making this one the most sought after color pallets for 2014. There is a resurgence of gold and bronze vessels thrown in for good measure. They can be store bought, borrowed or family heirlooms, but they must look like antiques, not too brassy, as this will further enhance the florals. For brides to be, the head of household, or the young at heart, this fashion floral trend is one to keep an eye on.
Blues are big this season, encompassing all shades from the sea and sky including teals and aqua for a soothing monochromatic color harmony. Succulents and grasses are mixed in to create texture that feel like they were transplanted from a coral reef. Vegetative style floral arranging can be used best to illustrate this emerging style for 2014. “Into the Forest”: Organic, Serene, and Unexpected Natural hues of deep chocolates, wood tones blend are blended with moss greens, burgundy, for a woodland inspired palette of colors. Organic containers made from bark, glass or other natural looking vessels enhance the look and help bring the great outdoors to our interiors and home.
