I love this round up coco+kelley posted yesterday featuring the Garden wallpaper! Did you know that Pantone's color of the year is Emerald? The last few years of colors have all been favorites of mine. Bright Honeysuckle pink, a bright coraly orange color called Tangerine Tango, and now a bright fresh green. (Side note: Lilly Pulitzer must be LOVING the last three years of predictions too. Those colors make up at least half of the patterns they make!) It really is an important decision because designers, buyers, everybody involved, pays attention to what Pantone predicts. Every year that I was involved in trendspotting color direction for the season or year, we always included Pantone's top pick somewhere, if not in multiple color stories. Presentations are made, swatches are dyed, samples are ordered and a year later it is in store near you. Ok, I think I'll go start on something new and emerald hued.
