Color of the Year

One of my designing "must haves" are our Pantone swatch books. I love mixing and matching color in design. Our wedding clients usually are inspired by one or two main colors, and we help to "build a look" by layering colors as accents and highlights creating dimension. The 2009 Pantone Color of the Year was Mimosa. Warm yellows are still popular heading into 2010- who doesn't love a sunny, happy yellow?

Pantone just announced their 2010 Color of the Year- Turquoise.

In an excerpt taken straight from Pantone... Turquoise, an inviting, luminous hue, ithe color of the year for 2010. Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise evokes thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a languorous, effective escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of well-being. Who wouldn't want to include a color that evokes those emotions into their special day?

In honor of the new Color of the Year, we created an inspiration board solely comprised of some of our favorite Etsy vendors...

Top Row (L-R): Cupcake Social's, emilie's, purpledazeez
Middle Row (L-R): Jenneration Fix, sarahsteven, Made by Stella
Bottom Row (L-R): The Jewelers Supply Box, The Fabric Farm, ello there

Just like our weddings and events where we incorporate accents, I chose to include dimensional colors of forest green, mimosa yellow, sky blue and white. Enjoy finding your inspiration!
