Color Trends for 2007

I just received the Fall issue of Shuttle, Spindle & Dye, the Handweavers Guild of America's quarterly publication & there was a great article on color trends for 2007. Michele Wipplinger states "This palette is inspired by a fusion of folkloric traditions rich in ornamentation & bursting with hues that express the individuality of the global melange which defines our visual expression: textured, jeweled, layered, & eclectic."

Here's what's predicted to be hot...

  • Amber Gold: red-based gold moving toward amber & metallic bronze
  • Spicy Orange: muted shades of cinnamon & apricot, bronzed orange
  • Sun-Burnt Red: red-orange
  • Folkloric Red
  • Magenta
  • Purples
  • Sorrento Blue: yellow-infused blues
  • Bloom
  • Eco-inspired greens: bamboo, olive green
  • Aqua
  • Bronzed Browns: ranging from tan to taupe & bronzed metallics
