From Runway to Home: Spring 2011color trends

During New York Fashion Week in September 2010, Pantone announced the Spring 2011 color forecasts. Now that Spring has actually sprung, we are keeping our eyes peeled to see if this year's color trends actually come out to play.

 Not only can these colors work in your wardrobe, they can be incorporated into your home as well.  We've thrown together a little runway vs. home mix.  Hope you like it!


Honeysuckle, something between pink and coral (in my opinion), was proclaimed as the color of the year.  Here are some runway looks from Nina Ricci, Jill Sander, DKNY and Valentino.

Natalie Umbert, designer of Ateleir Natalie Umbert, decided to go bold with honeysuckle!  Check out the peacock rug!!  Look familiar?  I'm still swooning over it!

Punch Drunk Orange 
 That's not the real name for this color, but I find it quite suitable.

 There is definitely something dramatic about walking into a blue room.  Adding whites and creams creates a satisfying balance without taking away from the full effect.

 I love wearing and decorating with white!!  It's all about the accessories.  Whether a simple green tote...

Or books by the bounties, colors definitely pop when paired with stark white!

So what do you think about this year's spring color forecast?

Emily Henderson, HGTV Design Star and writer of Style by Emily Henderson, may be whipping up some color trends of her own in this weeks episode (Did we mention this chic scored her on show!?) of Secrets from a Stylist as she transforms Joy Cho's LA space.   Joy, once a Philly girl (but not the only reason we love her), writes her own blog Oh Joy!, and has quite a knack for design herself.  Secrets from a Stylist airs tomorrow night, 6pm PST / 9pm EST.
