Spring/Summer 2015 - Sunset Rituals - Color Combinations
The second part of our trend articles is focusing on color combinations. Let's just summarize what we learned from Swarovski trend researches and put that in work.
Romantic trend is bringing us back to nature and ourselves. All earth colors from deep browns to lighter shades of brown to sandy gold tones are great as a base theme.
Our color selection is created from Fire Polished Beads. Starting on the top with Crystal Apricot Medium, Topaz, Dark Topaz, Smoke Topaz, Jet Blue Iris, and Crystal Gold Bronze Full Coated on the bottom.
Since we have our base colors now we can play and spice it up a bit. At first we will only stay in brown and orange shades.
The combination on the picture starts on the top with Crystal Gold Bronze, Crystal Senegal Lustre, Smoke Topaz, Crystal Apricot Medium, Topaz, and Isabelle in Fire Polished Beads. To light up brown theme we added golden tone of Senegal Luster (2nd from the top) and sandy color Isabelle (on the bottom). Thanks to that Topaz is looking lighter and brings in more orange sparkle. We mentioned last time that shapes are inspired by purely organic creations and irregularity and rough shapes are "IN". To support that we added irregular pendants (Tiger Eyes) and combined them with Crystal Black Pearls.
Do you like brighter and bold designs? Let's add even more orange tones. We'll still use brown and golden shades as our base and will add different shades of orange. From the top we selected Brown Pearls followed by Fire Polished orange color Sun, Light Brown Pearl, Orangy Pearl, and Fire Polished Beads in Sunset color. As a highlight we used Swarovski Moons and Briolette pendants in Golden Shadow color.
Do you like just a touch of color and color don't have to be bold? These golden shades can be just for you. From top to the bottom we selected Fire Polished Beads in Crystal Santander, Crystal Gold Bronze, Crystal Capri Gold, Crystal Apricot Medium, Crystal Champagne, and Crystal Velvet. Underneath we used Swarovski Pendants in Crystal Copper and Jet Black color.
We will move on from orange shades to show you different color combination within this trend.
It doesn't have to be orange to spice up your design. We are still using brown, golden, and sandy shades as our base theme but instead of orange we used rich blue color to light it up. We started with Fire Polished Beads in Jet AB2x, Metallic Carmen Blue, Dark Topaz, Smoked Topaz in 2 sizes, Crystal Senegal Luster, Isabelle, and Sapphire stones in settings for pendants.
We can also completely stay in dark shades and use black together with brown shades as seen on the last image.
Creativity has no limits. Just enjoy it!
