Typography, textiles, print, stationery – this year has kicked-off with watercolour as a key trend…
We’re loving the fresh, soft colour palettes and application – it’s a match made in watercolour heaven for SALT.
Recently, SALT developed the visual promotion for a High Tea event celebrating International Women’s Day 2015 at Holy Spirit Northside Private Hospital. The design stemmed from the high tea theme and initial Save the Date tea cup watercolour illustration. The event raises awareness and funds for women’s health, so we wanted to introduce a fresh, spirited look which we achieved through a watercolour effect (perfect timing with this trend in design!).
As print and interior design lovers, it’s no surprise we discovered a veritable cornucopia of inspiring pieces, thanks Pinterest!
We’ve also been following Winkelen Magazine since their humble beginnings and were excited to see a feature showcasing the watercolour theme in Issue 10 (last edition). From wallpaper to wedding stationery, linen to limited edition prints – there’s absolutely nothing wishy-washy about watercolours!
Another recent favourite for us is The Life Creative – an interior design blog by stylist Chris Carroll. What a find! Head over to his blog to get the lowdown on this trend and so much more!
“As the name suggests, the hues in this trend are watercolours; abundant shades of soft greens and blues, the occasional pop of a more daring hue (but always with restraint), and a good dose of soft grey to break up the starkness of the white foundation.”
This could truly be the start of something wonderfully water-colourful to inspire you this weekend!
