Autumn 2012 Event Colour Trends

Pantone’s predictions for Autumn 2012 include the hottest colours for fashion, décor. This season, a diverse palette of hues blends neutrals, bolds and metallic shades. “By playing to consumers' practical side with versatile neutrals, and boosting their confidence with bold, spirited hues, this skilfully balanced palette has something for everyone,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Key tones in the Pantone Fall 2012 collection include neutrals such as French Roast and Honey Gold, metallic-hued shades such as Titanium, bolds such as Pink Flambé, Tangerine Tango, Ultramarine Green, Bright Chartreuse and Olympian Blue along with softer tones such as the lavender-infused Rhapsody and Rose Smoke. Linens and event décor in these shades are offset beautifully with neutral furniture hire or even silver or gold seating to tie in with the metallic trend.   

Autumn 2012 Furniture Trends

Much as the season’s current colours showcase neutral, natural elements used along with splashes of bold colour, furniture trends are also veering towards natural elements this season. Wood, natural fabrics such as leather, suede, cotton and linen plus simple designs bring colour across harmoniously.

Black lounge furniture, tables and chairs offset vibrant shades perfectly too, especially when metallic elements are used. Black tables and gold chairs for instance are given a glamorous take for evening events with the addition of hot pink and chartreuse, while black lounge furniture used with silver and blush tones creates a softer look. LED tables can also bring in subtle colour through clever lighting that also provides just the right ambience. Your choice of catering hire will allow you to customise your décor, using tables, chairs and furniture as your basis for your overall décor theme.
