Summer Trends for 2012 – A Saturday Moodboard

Haven’t done a moodboard in ages, but since I was inspired to go shopping last night after work and managed to come home with a few choice new items, I thought I’d spring a moodboard on the blog this morning – all in celebration of Summer 2012’s FABULOUS fashion, makeup & hair trends…

Think Neon, Pastel & Prints, top colours are mint, teal, green, coral & pink, dipped hair is in, brights are good to go, makeup is fresh & colourful, jewellery is big, glittery and bright... enjoy!

Neon & Pastel Decor | Home Trends

Recently I did a post on Pastel Colours as a big fashion trend for 2012, and have found that splashes of Neon are also making their way into focus – both in fashion and in decor trends. What we are also seeing now is a great combination of neon & pastel together (I know, initally it seems crazy, but actually – it works!) and not only in fashion. Why not brighten up your home for summer with some pastel & neon shades?

The key is to keep the base colours very neutral and quite lightwhite, dove grey or pale pastels work well on walls, while brighter pops of colour look good as accents. Key pastels to remember include: mint, teal, rose, lemon and lilac, while neons look good in fuschia, tangerine, coral and florescent yellow.
