We just can’t believe how fast the time passes by! Quilt Market is behind us already and we are getting ready for the full releases of Fall 2016 Collections.
It’s the beginning of November and we chose a beautiful color to be featured in this Month’s color fun series. It's plum! I think it’s my favorite color fun bundle so far. I know, I say it every time ;) But honestly plum color have something mysterious and luscious in it. When I look at the bundle I just want to grab it and make something beautiful with it.
Here are a couple of tips on how to mix & match plum with other colors.
pink- If you wish to support the red in your plum fabric combine it with light pink. It will add a girly feel to your garments.
White, ivory and grey - To achieve a natural look, mix & match it with ivory or grey fabric.
Purple - Does your plum project seem to come out too dark? Consider adding a light shades of purple to make the garment more bright.
Turquoise - believe or not - those colors look great together. Turquoise adds great contrast to plum.
Plum in Home decor
In home decor it’s better to use plum as an accent color. You can combine it with black but remember that those two colors may create a very dark effect, so consider using brighter colors. Combined with white will create glamorous and modern interior.
Are you ready to create beautiful plum quilts and pillows to add a little sophistication and richness to your home decor? Or maybe glamorous plum garments for yourself? Here are a few prints from some AGF fabric collections that we chose for this Color Fun episode. We hope you’ll love them!
