So, summer is on its way out here from the U.S., and autumn is on its way in. I, for one, am not prepared to let the warm times proceed. But thanks to New York Fashion Week, which is going on as we speak, I will jump over autumn and winter entirely and look straight in trends for spring 2012. I must say, I enjoy what I am seeing.
A popular trend is the mixture of oranges and reds with pink. Oranges and reds are omnipresent fall colors, and many people like to inject several subtle energies into the seasons in their decor. This season, why not just take a cue from fashion’s top dogs and incorporate a jolt of pink for your mix of autumnal colors? You can rest assured that the color combo is going to keep you warm and merry through the dark days of winter, (unless you love winter and do not locate the times dim), and it is going to still be fresh and on-trend come spring!

J.Crew did not mess around for Spring 2012. Certainly, the doctrine is NO FEAR. This bedroom is channeling the identical feeling, with two bright colors working in concert to create an exciting composition. Tossing in a fantastic pattern at a high-volume color will rejuvenate a space in no time!
As though it were directly out of the jazzy Peter Som outfit, this living room design, utilizes orange and pink colors as a baseline, whereas blue, yellow, green and natural tones produce a gorgeous palette which will never become stale.
MANDARINA STUDIO interior design
Much like this look from Vivienne Tam, one bright color takes centre stage, though other tones are muted in comparison. A similar look is simple to achieve without costing too much. It’s all about accessories within this space, from framed images to new flowers to a snappy lamp and doodads on the console.
For Folks design
While pinks, reds and oranges are inherently bold, taming them with classic silhouettes and just the ideal amount of pattern and sheen is going to bring about a tailored look, like this one from Christian Siriano. Shots of soft pink and bold orange give this living space an unexpected and much-appreciated jolt of excitement without sacrificing any of the sophistication. Well done!

Here is another illustration of refinery through boldness. This bedroom displays the designer’s control of composition of color, hue, texture and pattern.
Contemporary Fabric – $34
Orange + pink = perfect ikat pillow.
The introduction of one great pattern has the capability to change any space. This pillow, in addition to that small painting on the ground, are subtle developments, but they make a large effect on the overall design.
Wild colors can be tamed with patterns and textures to achieve a highly sophisticated space, such as this bedroom, in which the colors pop, but the tailored bits and varying textures lead to a really sharp vignette. The unstoppable Marc Jacobs makes it seem effortless in this look from his Spring 2012 set, in which a tailored jacket brings a part of classic refinement for this adventurous outfit.
Suzani Pillow Cover – $50
Ok, one more cushion. This is why they work so well: If you are not certain about introducing this kind of saucy color blend, take baby steps using a toss pillow or two. They are a super low-cost, low-committment way to experiment with injecting new color ideas that can easily be eliminated if you decide they are not for you.
