Designer – Tracy Reese

Discovered this designer is not only a designer but she is one of Pantone colour influencers.  She is the brain behind Michelle Obama’s amazing black and red dress for the “Let Freedom Ring” ceremony commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Here’s her interview with Pantone.

PROMINENT COLORS
I love Cyan Blue mixed with Scarlet. It’s classic and always works. Mint Green is mixing beautifully with Lapis Blue and is a wonderful accent to a primary palette. I also like Ochre mixed with all shades of Pink from dusty to shocking.

INSPIRATION
Tribal cultures from Africa to the Caribbean and South America.

SIGNATURE COLORS
Many different shades of Blue, from Indigo to Lapis and Cyan to Sea and Ocean Blues. They anchor every delivery. Our customer is always drawn to warm Blues – they look good on everyone.

MUST-HAVE ITEM FOR SPRING 2014
A tropical-print slip dress in a moody Pink floral print.
WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU REPAINT A ROOM OR ACCENT PIECE IN YOUR HOME?
I would wallpaper an accent wall in my bedroom with one of our large floral placement prints in shades of Pink and Ochre. It’s bright and melancholy at the same time – very emotional and expressive.
