I don’t know about you but it seems that a lot of us already have Valentine’s Day on the mind! I just thought I’d take a quick moment to show you all how cute our Bright Bloom Print is for everyone’s favorite hallmark holiday! The bright reds and pinks in the floral to me makes this a perfect print to say I love you to all of the gals in your life. Below are a few of my favorite valentines gift-able pieces!Tweet
We have just added two soon-to-be-retired prints to our Room It Up Outlet Sale on our website! Be sure to check it out as we have some great products listed at great prices. Sad to see these two go, but we have to make room for all of our new towels, spa wraps and more coming into stock soon!Tweet
Here at Room It Up it’s no secret that we just love love love COLOR! In fact it’s something that some of us here in the office talk about 90% of our work day! Maureen (our head designer and VP) travels from NYC to London seeking out the hottest color trends for the seasons. Below I have listed some of the key colors we are showing in our Spring/Summer 2010 collection and what inspired us to incorporate them into our looks. Enjoy!
Turquoise - The official “it” color of the season! While we always have shown our love for the fabulous color that is turq – this year we chose to include it in two of our biggest launches – Bright Bloom and Dream Dot. While it isn’t the main color of either of these two prints – we still think it adds a special touch and compliments all of the contrasting and complimentary colors in both of the prints quite well. Here is S. Florida our office walls are even painted a shade of turquoise… you can say that we literally surrounded by it!
Red – This classic bright is something we just couldn’t wait to introduce in a big way for this Spring/Summer. Red is everywhere whether it’s on the runways at bryant park, a nautical inspired tank, a striking shade of lipstick – even the red on the american flag… red is all around and ready to make a statement. We just love how this bold shade compliments to the other brights in the fun, floral statement that is Bright Bloom.
Purple - You heard it here Purple is back – and it’s back in a big way! Here at RIU we couldn’t be more excited to introduce this delicious plumy – berry shade to you via our SoHo Swirl statement. When our creative team was drawing color inspiration they couldn’t help but see purples emerging everywhere – plaids, florals, etc – and honestly I think they were spot on. I don’t know about you but who didn’t just love Sandra Bullock’s Golden Globe gown that showcased a vibrant color of purple?
Well there you have it. Our color inspiration for Spring/Summer 2010. Now we have to ask… what inspires you?Tweet
One of our favorite surfing/active lifestyle magazines WSSM (Women’s Surf Style Magazine) featured a couple of our great products in their Fall/Winter 2009 issue! Thanks again to Sandra and the editorial team over in Hawaii – not only is your magazine great – but, I may just one day take you up on your surfing lesson offer!Tweet
