Colour Palette from Salone del Mobile Milan 2015 with Dulux Ireland ‘THEATRICAL FANTASY’

Theatrical theme was ever present among many companies. Aren’t we all actors of life sometimes? We hide for good reasons in public, more discreet, toned down emotions, guarded. Environments are like silent friends that reflect this inner talk. Drama is good in small doses. It keeps the energy levels up.

Theatrical character was articulated into the environment by showcasing displays of crazy collections: myriad of hanging dolls, multiple hats or quirky mannequins. Italian firm Dieffebi had an array of jars with pigments on the shelves, thought it made an elegant presentation. Also we loved the multiple paint cans stacked in the corner to create a dramatic vibe. Understated melodrama was introduced by injections of geometric patterns on rugs. Hexagon being the most used motif trending among many companies.

Glittery walls are not only for children, adults can revisit their childhood Desigual is a prime example of this fantasy design. Freehand writing concept was repeated in their look, only this time with more glitter to enhance the sense of privilege and free spirit.
Some stands reminded of Alice in Wonderland. Bright colours and flowery cushions combined with plenty of lighting. How do you feel? How do you taste? They are ever important questions designing contemporary living. To dig deep into our senses get the aromas of our spirit. Finding ways to associate, understand and to make sense. “Theatrical Fantasy” trend is as name suggest all about fantasy world.

For the “Theatrical Fantasy” colour palette inspiration think of the hues such as: powder pink, sunlight, coral, angora, fog, lily white, cigar smoke, apricot sherbet, pale turquoise, deep mint, chartreuse, pearl, parchment, oyster white, pale amber, honeysuckle, apricot, salmon, poison green, peach nectar, peach pink, papaya, sunshine coral, pale banana, lemonade, pastel green, pool blue, aqua, turquoise.
