High Point Highlights: The Color of the Year

And the color of the year goes too...


TURQUOISE!

When Pantone named 15-5519 the color of the year last Fall, I couldn't wait to see how this fun, vibrant color would infiltrate all industries from fashion to furniture!

A wholesale vendor, Global Views (showing at IHFC), made it a point to take note of this trend and introduced several fun accessories in trendy turq!

Acacia Home and Garden (go Mom and Dad!), also took note and were on trend introducing turquoise in their fabrics and as their newest finish for their W.I.N.O.S collection!

My mom dressed in and lounging on the color of the year!

W.I.N.O.S. stands for Women In Need of Sanity and was founded by fabulous Bonnie Jesseph who imagined sanity as diving into a big glass of wine at the end of the day- my kinda people! The licensed collection (can also be found at IHFC) includes indoor and outdoor pieces fashioned out of decay and moisture resistant, sustainable cypress wood! It takes very well to non-colors of the year too :)

turqoise, the color and the stone, are both my favorites!
that piece is divine and your color co-ordinated mama looks too cute sitting on it!

W.I.N.O.S is hysterical, I definitely need to start a girl's meet-up called that.

Love&Light!
