Color was trending on the red carpet of tonight’s 2014 Golden Globe Awards.  Clean, bright and very saturated, color dominated the full length of the red carpet. A few highlights of the color at tonight’s event:

ORANGE is the new BLACK

Those who claimed that orange was the new black were not kidding.  Orange seemed to pop up at both ends of the red carpet and everywhere in between – definitely a popular choice which we will most likely see more of in a few weeks at the Oscars.

When Pantone announce their color of the year, I was shocked that “radiant orchid” was selected instead of what I thought was the sure winner, cobalt blue.  Despite not being the Color of the Year, cobalt made a much noticed appearance on the red carpet and those who chose to wear the trendy color set themselves apart from the crowd and were no doubt noticed by all.

And my two favorite picks of the evening did not sport a bright and saturated hue, but instead was spot on with the subtle metallic trend.

I hope that you all had a chance to see all the beautiful dresses making their way down the red carpet tonight.  What was your favorite dress of the evening?

On a side note, I am pleased to announce that I was asked to serve as one of eight moderators for the popular G+ Interior Design Community.   As a moderator, I will co-host the popular Hangouts on Air every Friday afternoon (1 pm PST) along with my other colleagues.  Our first live Hangout on Air was this past Friday and our next will be this Friday, January 17,  where we will be talking to about their newly initiated designer program.   This is just one of the many things in the works -more exciting things to be announced shortly!
