09 Jan Color Trends
Do color trends grow on you? I’m starting to realize that the longer a trend is around, the more likely I am to like it. For instance, (at the risk of dating myself) I once swore I would never, ever use any color that resembled avocado green or harvest gold. Now, I love yellow greens and deep golds. I’m also warming to aqua and red. I did not like this color combo at all when it first came on the quilting scene. Now the quilt on my living room couch includes those colors. I wonder how I’ll feel about Radiant Orchid in the future (although, I’m still not much of an Emerald Green fan).
By the same token, I loved the country blues and rose pinks back in the ’80s and now I can’t stand them. My tastes have definitely changed a lot over the years. Am I just fickle or it is a case of everything old is new again? Is it that the shades that are available now are better?
Maybe it has to do with tastes changing over time, seeing things in new and different ways, or just getting used to different combinations. I don’t know, but it sure keeps life interesting! What do you think?
