Color trends - Target edition

So I went to Target today and one of the things I noticed was a lot of stuff in my favorite pink/orange/yellow combination. The picture here is one of the last quilts I finished (which was a couple of years ago now). I came up with this combination sort of by accident, and at the time I thought I'd come up with something really original. But what I've noticed since then is that I've seen this combination more and more. Anyway, it's a great spring color scheme and I'd love to have more of it. Hmm, I need to look to see what I can do with that, bead-wise!

(Reminder to myself: I need to get this quilt and put it somewhere I can see it for spring!)

I'm not a fan of pink or yellow but they do work well with peach or orange. The colors do remind me of spring flowers, especially of tulips and daffodils.

I have never been much of a fan of yellow - for one thing it looks horrible on me - but I do like it in combination with other things. As for pink, I do like it, but I find that I like it best when multiple shades of pink are put together, like a bouquet of assorted flowers or something. Somehow I find that the shade of pink matters a great deal.
