Color Trends

It really is no secret that color is my guilty pleasure, For some its shoes, others its chocolate, for me its pretty color. I am in awe of products with pretty colors and vibrant hues. In this blog post I will share my favorite colors right now. I say right now, because my color preferences change often.

 

Not sure if my latest obsession has been influenced by the season. I really am not a fan of plum or anything purple, but I find it to be a nice accent color, both in art and fashion. A plum color blouse with a big ‘ol mustard colored bag. Or how about  a mustard colored blouse with a plum scarf and really dark jeans? The combination of these three colors are endless.

Color Trends Report Spring 2011: Part 2 Blue Curacao

The second color in the trend report is Blue Curacao. It is a warm teal that resembles “Tiffany Blue”. This color, or different shades of it, has been prominent in the past recent years. It is a feminine blue, which probably attributes to its popularity. Blue Curacao has also been popular in the culinary trade. Cupcakes, cakes and other confections are often seen displayed in this particluar shade of blue, as seen in the adorable cake toppers below.

Color Trends Report Spring 2011 – Part 1: Honeysuckle

Pantone releases its Color trend fashion report for each season. The report is aimed at the Fashion Industry, but has transcended to all design industries. Its release is so influential that the colors selected in the report, quickly become the “it” colors. They can be seen in everything from handbags, furniture and clothing all the way to paint colors.

For those of you who know me it come as no surprise that know me it comes as no surprise that I love color. My obsession with paper married to my love of color is how I’m Inkpressed was born. So as you may have already deduced, I am one of those who awaits this report with baited breath. I was so excited when I saw the spring release of the Pantone report. So many of the colors in I have  been using in my designs. I was going to blog about all the colors at once, but because I am so excited about this report, I am going to showcase each color individually.

Each year Pantone releases its color of the year. It is the one color that bears the title of “The color that will transcend all seasons”. You can use it in the summer or the dead of the winter and the color will still be in style. Pretty big title to live up to. For 2011, Pantone has selected “Honeysuckle”, one of my favorite colors. It is a mix between hot pink and melon. It is fitting for adults and children. I have used it in so many of my products and I am excited to see that it is the color of the year. With that in mind, I will begin my color series with Honeysuckle.
