Oooh I’ve been salivating over all the new fabric and wallcovering offerings in fabulous yummy colors. Just because the economy may be iffy doesn’t mean interiors need to be dull and hum drum – quite the opposite. Walking in the front door of a home should fill one with happy comfort and what better way to achieve this than with happy colors.
Oranges and Magentas – What a way to wake up a tired terracotta!

The Purples – Channeling the retro Donny Osmond purples in a good way. New shades have a brightness and purity whether a pastel or more saturated hue.
Duralee fabricsPollack, Manuel Canovas, Elitis wallcovering, Manuel Canovas and Duralee fabrics.
Greens – Emerald and grass greens are flooding showrooms especially combined together. Lime is still relevant to liven any color scheme.
Blues – Of course being known as the blue girl or having my own “Lisa Blue” in various forms I always gravitate to clear and pure blues which for a few years were very hard to come by. Thank you color god’s for delivering! Periwinkle, Ocean, Blue Skies and Ceylon Sapphire are abundant.

Yesterday’s dulled down muddy versions of almost any color have been replaced with pure gemstone colors. If that doesn’t qualify as natural color I don’t know what does. Just make sure to explain it is fabric you want when you tell your significant other you wish to be surrounded by amethysts, emeralds, turquoise and sapphires. 🙂
