And the Emmy Award Goes to… Color!


The festivities began outside the 59th Annual Emmy Awards Sunday night with the photographers, stylist and critics checking out who was wearing who and what styles were in... A hot trend this year was vibrant color. Vivid hues of Fuscia, Electric-Blue, Deep Navy, Canary Yellow, Royal Purple, Crimson... (Elegant whites were there too)

Marcia Cross - Beautiful Natural Colors

Emmys Colors
I personally thought Marica Cross looked amazing. The turquoise accent color she wore in her earrings and bracelet really worked well with the rest of her natural palette. Her red hair looked gorgeous with her skin tone and the light colored dress worked well to let the natural elements shine. No spray tans or glitzy jewels needed here... just a beautiful woman well accented by light and natural colors.

Apple’s iPod Colors Growing Up

Apple’s iPod Colors Growing Up


At the Apple Special Event this week, they announced several new products and updates... One update I found very interesting was change in colors for the new iPod Nano and Shuffle... Away have gone the bright pop colors and welcomed in are more mature, rich colors. Apple has been a dominating force in the digital music scene with iTunes & iPod...

Are they now making an effort to dominate the rest of the "older" market?

Music can be a very youthful industry. In most Mass-Market Genres: Pop, Rap, R&B, Etc. the most popular artists usually have a expiration date around 30 years old. Apple has done a great job tapping the young and creative crowd to create a very loyal and early adopting fan base. The buying power of these young early adopters has fueled amazing growth of the digital music industry and with an already great market share, it looks like Apple is using some more mass-appealing colors to reach out to the rest of the market.

Forbidden Color Combinations?

Forbidden Color Combinations?


Color theorists and designers in fashion or computer graphics have coined phrases based around what colors shouldn't go together. A recent forum post, Red and Green Should Not Be Seen? discusses two of the sayings ("Red and Green Should Not Be Seen" and "Blue and Green Should Never Be Seen Without Something in Between"), and some lovers have even responded in protest, showing how there is no 'wrong' in love. Here are some palettes and applications of the forbidden colors that really work.

The Colors and Tastiness of Chocolate

The Colors and Tastiness of Chocolate


Chocolate is a favourite treat for so many. It’s been called incredibly addicting and better than sex. Coming in the form of bars, truffles, and even drinks, chocolate has become the keystone in a sweettooth’s diet. Chocolate itself, milk or dark, has a wonderful range of rich browns. Sure, chocolate has vanilla in it, but what on earth is white chocolate?

Colors of the World’s Best First Class Experiences

Colors of the World’s Best First Class Experiences


Have you ever flown first class? Have you ever really wished you could? Well, the top ten from Forbes' World's Best First Class article seems to shoot down every actually-comfortable, well-padded seat I've walked past. From bed-chairs to private nooks, Heaven seems to recline at 40,000ft.

What are the Colors of a First Class Experience?

Taking a look at Forbes' Top Ten was almost like a journey itself, but not through airspace -- through color. The planes I've been on were all typically calming, hospital colors, but the concept photos from these airlines -- ranked tenth to first -- make me consider spending a little more money next time I fly, and a little more time shopping around, because all of the best colors are all around the world.

Qatar First-Class

Flying first-class here means access to a separate terminal in Doha that mimics a five-star hotel with several fine-dining restaurants, a medical center, and a spa with sauna and Jacuzzi. On board passengers get caviar service, full-size pillows, white linen mattresses, Australian wool blankets and Bulgari toiletry kits. The seats are 79 inches long, have 15-inch LCD screens and come with a 23-inch meal table that allows dining for two, just as in a restaurant.

Not Only White: Customizable Wardrobe by Lago

Not Only White: Customizable Wardrobe by Lago


Italian art director Daniele Lago has created some wonderful designs for the current Lago collection. One product I find particularly great is the N.O.W. Customizable Wardrobe, with the ability to create any number of color palette designs... it makes the COLOURlover inside me giddy.

It is characterized by an innovative approach to color and a system that is so flexible and versatile that it matches the exact measurements of any desire. It is not a simple modular system, but a product that achieves a perfect fit between the visualized dream and the realized solution.

Color Palettes of the Top Grossing Movie Posters

Color Palettes of the Top Grossing Movie Posters


Armin Vit at Speak Up took an amazing look at the 25 movie posters of the top grossing movies of all time.

Not only did he organize the top 25 posters and break them down to simple palettes... He even created a larger image that showed the percentage of color usage for each film rating. Mr. Vit might just be our new best COLOURfriend.

Armin: "I looked for the final theatrical posters - as opposed to teaser or character-specific posters — which most fully represented what people saw on the streets or in movie theaters. Once lined up, I went over them one by one selecting a) the overall or background color, b) one or two of the most visible colors, and c) one or two accent colors. Ignoring any minimum-impact colors along the way. After picking out the colors, I arranged them, via gradients, on a horizontal bar, using the background color as the base and then eyeballing the "amount" of the rest of the colors to create an approximation of the colors you would see if you squinted at the poster or if you had really blurry vision."
