Vintage Blue and Orange Kitchenware - This Year's Pantone Colours!



You may have noticed the new colours this season are blue and orange together.  From clothing in Whitestuff and Fat Face to fabrics and yarns in sewing shops, it's all about Blues & Oranges this year!  This is perfect for those of us who adore the 1970s and the bright orange tones that abounded back then.  Toning the orange down with sky blue is the perfect idea, making it easier to live with whilst being infinitely cheery!

Last Autumn the Pantone Institute launched the colours for Spring 2018. In amongst the key colours were PANTONE 17-1563 - 'Cherry Tomato' a hot bright orangey red and PANTONE 16-4132 - 'Little Boy Blue' which brings to mind blue skies and hopefulness. These have been put side by side on the Pantone wesbite to accentuate the way they complement one another.

Tap into this trend by searching by colour in the yay retro! online vintage shop now (combined postage available):
