PLAYING WITH PATTERN AND COLOR
Los Angeles designer Raun Thorp sees red coming back, in new versions and applications.
Pantone’s new palette has several vibrant hues, like Cherry Tomato, a zingy red; Meadowlark, a bracing yellow; and their color of the year, Ultra Violet.
Thorp is interested in avant garde Italian patterns now, too. “Cole & Son has some amazing Fornasetti wall coverings that will completely transform a room in unexpected ways,” she says. “Surreal pattern is so appropriate in these surreal times.”
Floral and garden patterns are cropping up everywhere, especially exaggerated ones. “The wackier the better,” says Thorp.
