Pantone Color Report Fall 2018
We get so giddy with the thought of Fall… Especially when us Floridians spend most of the year on the surface of the sun. Yes we’re being dramatic, but it’s also somewhat true. One of the things we love most about Fall are the color palettes, because at the base of every great design is a perfectly matched color scheme!
In this blog, we’re serving up some Fall color palette inspiration along with the intention behind each hue.
If you’ve been around the block, you know that each year Pantone releases their top picks for seasonal colors. This momentous occasion could definitely be considered the event industry’s NFL/NBA draft.
It’s so exciting to see what colors we may get to play with throughout the year, as they catch the eyes of our clients.
Institute Press characterized Pantone’s picks for Fall 2018 as: “Autumnal hues that evoke the feeling of leaves on the forest floor, rich plumage and twilight reveal a modern fall palette of deep and rich tones with outbursts of colorful surprise.” Now that sounds like a romance novel- so color us ready for a stroll through the forest.
While this doesn’t look like a “traditional Fall color palette” we love its opportunity for unique looks. After all, self-expression is always in style!
Red Pear: Deliciously deep red, whose luscious depth entices.
Valiant Poppy: Brave and outgoing red shade effusive in its allure.
Nebulas Blue: Reminiscent of twilight, a thoughtful, starry-eyed blue.
Ceylon Yellow: Savory and spicy yellow adds an exotic touch.
Martini Olive: Smooth, sophisticated and urbane green adds depth to the Fall/Winter 2018 palette.
Russet Orange: This forest floor orange speaks to earthen warmth.
Ultra Violet (Color of the year!): Inventive and imaginative Ultra Violet lights the way for what is yet to come.
Crocus Petal: A cultivated and refined hue adds a light and airy spring-like feeling demand.
Limelight: Animated and effervescent, a pungent yellow-green becomes the center of attention.
Quetzal Green (Our personal fav!): A deep elegant blue-green hue suggestive of rich plumage.
It is so refreshing to finally see the Pantone Colors of the Year come to life. A blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity – were chosen, as each are gentle tones that convey compassion, composure, and bring feelings of respite and relaxation.
“Appealing in all finishes, matte, metallic and glossy, the engaging combo joins easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. Add in silver or hot brights for more splash and sparkle.” – Pantone
This wedding at Bella Collina, photographed by Vine and Light, portrays the charm of timeless beauty, and I think we owe it all to Swanky I Do’s, the wedding coordinator, as well as the Pantone Colors of the Year. Our vintage charger plates complemented the tablescape beautifully, and we’re so looking forward to seeing more of this color scheme throughout the year!
