Piet Mondrian

It may have started with Mondrian… 
But was picked up by Marc Jacobs…
And Gucci and Valentino and Jil Sander and…

 Color Blocking, or, the use of large blocks of big, bold color, often coming from opposite sides of the color wheel, is the trend into early Fall, with some fashion experts predicting it will run through the rest of 2011.

Strong, vibrant color is the way to go, and we’ve teamed up some strong contenders for you, in lustrous Classic Rayon #40. Our two “Color Blox” kits let you go either way:

For a conservative, harmonious approach to color blocking,
  • Combine colors from the same family– bright pinks with vivid fuchsias; turquoise with royal blue
  • Keep warmer tones like orange and red together 

Or you can be more daring and try the opposite approach:
  • Use regal purples with contrasting, fiery oranges
  • Try lime green with melon or rosebud pink

Prefer a matte look to your color blocking? We've also created a Color Blox kit with our Frosted Matt just for you! For additional information and to order, visit madeiramart.com.

Think Color! Color! Color! Be Bold!
 Viva La Vivid Colors!
