Colour Palettes For 2015

Event styling: colour-palettes-2015

Event stying is fun but can take lot of work. One of the first things that you need to consider when planning your event or wedding is the underlying colour theme. This means that you need to think about and devise a palette of colours that will work with your venue, flowers, dress and furniture.

We often advise our customers to take the time to create an event mood-board before they start to plan their party, where they can pin colours and style themes that they particularly like. This can help to give them a clear view of how they want their event to look. Of course with sites such as Pinterest it is now easier than ever to create a virtual pin board of the latest colour themes based on what you find online. Wedding blogs and magazines can be great sources of colour inspiration and will help you keep up with the latest colour trends.

At Rio Lounge our wide range of fabulous furniture means that we can work with any colour styling that you choose. Our versatile furniture is great for a white party, or goes equally beautifully with a range of colours and we have a variety of amazing accessories that you can use to highlight the individual colours in your theme. We love seeing what the latest trends and ideas are each year. Here are some of our favourites for 2015.

Event Styling with Colour Blocking

Colour blocking has been a key trend for 2015 and is proving really popular for many weddings and events. To colour block you need to choose two or three  colours that provide a striking contrast with each other and use these throughout your event. Although the colours need to stand out from each other it is usually a good idea to choose colours from the same family such as neon brights or metallic hues.

Our brightly coloured ottoman range is ideal for colour blocking with our ice white sofa sets providing the ideal neutral background to your colour scheme. We predict that colour blocking will stay an event styling trend into 2016 too!

Simple Pastels

Some colour themes are perennially popular, and a pastel palette always works well for spring and summer events. Soft pinks, calming greens and baby blues give a romantic and vintage feel to an event and translate well into floral schemes too.

Pastels are ideal for weddings and work really well in an outdoor or country wedding teamed with meadow flowers, bunting and tea lights. If you are choosing a pastel colour scheme for your wedding it’s a great idea to accessorise with pretty and stylish furniture. Our Corintha Chaise Lounge provides the ideal seating solution. Teamed with our luxurious and opulent Rio Chandelier it really captures the romance of your big day.

Corporate Colour Palettes

If you are styling an event for a company or a sporting team it’s always a great idea to make sure that your venue décor matches the corporate or team colours. Rio Lounge are experts at creating stunning corporate events and, with our fabulous range of ottomans and scatter cushions in a variety of colours, we can make sure that your furniture meets the brief for any business event.
