"This season’s colors are driven by a desire to be uplifted and energized while staying grounded and balanced.

TEXILIST TAKE : WGSN is a global authority for consumer & design trends while Coloro offers a revolutionary system of 3,500 tones with great technical expertise. Their partnership paves the way for pathbreaking color predictions coming two years in advance & will surely influence many designers across fashion & home.
Butter has already started appearing as massive color in Fashion SS2021 collections, whereas Atlantic Blue seems to be the offshoot from Classic Blue (Pantone 2020). Olive Oil has already appeared in many military themes in previous seasons and continues to be popular for soothing interiors. The most interesting color here is Orchid Flower, because of its strong, saturated hue that can be polarizing in homes. The home interpretation will likely come in tints and tones, smaller motifs rather than full color, and decorative accessories like cushions.
