Cherished Gold

ColourFutures16, the annual colour and design trends forecasting publication, launched an exhibition in collaboration with Dulux at Tent London in September. The Colour of the Year 2016 is to be Cherished Gold and selected artists and designers each created work with the highlighted trends as a theme.


Cherished Gold is described as “earthy”, going well with wood and smokey grey.

Dulux have created a palette of paints to work with it.

You can see more here.

It will be interesting to see how much the trend is filtering through and influencing the fabrics available for quilters.

I wont be at Quilt Market this week, so will have to wait a while longer to find out. If you’re going, maybe you’ll see some. I know there are contenders in the Cirrus Solids range by Cloud9 and Timeless Treasures have a gold that looks pretty spot on in their Soho Solids.

Have fun 🙂
