2016 Pantone color of the year

Well, 2015 is almost gone, and I must say I was not too much in love with Marsala as the color of the year, although it was elegant and subdued, the color really was a rusty  tone of brown and burgundy and didn’t seem to exciting for weddings, but many embraced it.  As soon as @Pantone announced their new color for 2016,  Senerity and Rose Quartz, I was excited.

Yes, I’ve seen many complained about the color, but think of the possibilities, it’s a perfect hue of pink and blue, not too girly and not too much. It’s elegant and can translate from one season to another in fashion, interiors, events, weddings.

It’s a perfect combination of two colors, the first for @Pantone, with a mix that can go well with grey, white, black, and many neutrals. It has a perfect Costal vibe, and paired with rich textiles and glittery details is perfect for a gorgeous glam wedding.  Not to mention is great for baby showers, bridal showers and birthday celebrations, Quiceañeras and Bat Mitzvahs,  it’s a color combo with tons of possibilities and personlity, and you know how much we love that!

Looking around for inspiration with the color of the year, we found two wonderful modern invitation suites in the collections of Parperless Post that includes these beautiful hues.

For a baby shower in the print collection for Paperless Post, we spied this design Join us by Linda and Harriett, depiciting the blue and pink polka dots with accents of gold —  we love it, modern and delicate at the same time. I fell in love with this sweet invitation below  for a wedding, a flowery design, the Elizabeth with a sweet garden theme in their wedding invitations.  The invitation is perfect for a spring or summer wedding, you can translate the same design into your personal flowers and wedding decor, think of a flowy garden style bouquet with pink garden roses and peonies with highlights of delphinium, blue veronica and tweedia with tons of greenery.

For weddings, think of the many flowers in this sweet dusty pink, peonies, roses, ranunculus, carnations, all in amazing shades of rose quartz.

For Serenity, we can find delphinium, hyacinths, forget me not, tweedia, scabiosa flowers, Limonium, Veronica flowers,  and light blue hydrangeas, amongst others, all that can be paired in beautiful florals.

Can you tell we love this sweet combination, we designed this cascading bouquet and boutonniere for an urban inspiration in downtown DC at Long View Gallery, photos by Rachel Lowe Photography.

For a rustic design, include containers or jars that will help you match the color combination. Mason jars are perfect for a small florals.  Flowers, EightTreeStreet.

What a thrill to find this blog post by Katie Scholssberg for Fifty Flowers, it gives you a wonderful list of flowers for the two colors and they have created a Pinterest board with tons of flowers and ideas for your wedding day with the color of the year.

Welcome 2016, we love the new @Pantone color and cannot wait to design some amazing pretties with it!
