A Splash of Color

I thought I'd share a colorful mood board I recently created for one of my graduate courses.  I always love a good dose of color, but somehow the arrival of spring always brings about new inspiration with all the flowers and new green leaves showing up on the trees.

This fictitious project proposed a brand extension for an Italian fashion line.  This board expresses the brand's essence of color, pattern, urbanism, youthfulness, geometry and the best of Italian design which would be translated into a new home goods line of products.

It's interesting how the worlds of fashion and interiors are distinctly different but also related.  In the past, the trends and colors from the runways would trickle down to interiors products over a period of about five years.  Now, it's about a one year lag time, and I'm sure with the continued progress of technology that window will get even more narrow.
