Playful and light-hearted, Whimsy is a bouquet of colors, textures, and patterns. Have fun with this theme by mixing and matching place settings, layering different fabric types and patterns, and utilizing hanging florals or floral archways. Colors such as deep reds and greens, golden yellows and shades of purple can create a moody feeling or soft, muted yellows, pinks, and purples can feel more mythical.
Here are a few of our favorite shades for this trend from Pantone’s Spring Summer 2019 color report. Jester Red and Aspen Gold are fine choices with a mossier design board where as Sweet Lilac and Living Coral (the Color of the Year!) lend themselves to the more lighthearted side of whimsy.
This eclectic trend has a Bohemian vibe with a twist! From “moody” to “mythical” this fanciful theme can be achieved my mastering the ART of the MIX with fabrics and décor. Fabric textures in fashion and home décor will inspire wedding and event design. Velvet, textured Jacquards, embroidered and brushstroke floral prints, and chiffon are some of the top favorites for this festive whimsical trend.
The art of the mix is all about layering linens with color, texture, and pattern to create a multidimensional design.
