I’ve gotten two clothing catalogs that are telling me that blue is the hot color for spring. I read that Dazzling Blue (which bears a great resemblance to Facebook blue) is Pantone’s Color of the Year 2014.
Talbott’s is showcasing “Coastal Classics” in the catalog that arrived today in the middle of Chicago’s snowstorm. Blue.
I thought that Radiant Orchid was this year’s Pantone Color of the Year. I saw it on television; I bought my friend Michele a gorgeous radiant orchid handbag for Christmas. Radiant Orchid was supposed to be the color of the year. Did I lose all my cool credentials — if I ever had them? Yet Mr. Internet provided proof that Radiant Orchid is ALSO the color of the year.
I was confused, so I went straight to the source — Pantone. And all is explained.
Looking ahead for tablescaping ideas for spring, we might want to consider Hemlock. Or maybe not. Will our guests enjoy a meal served with a Hemlock chaser?
Or perhaps a little Sand on our tables?
Of course, we use these gorgeous colors in our tablescapes and home decor all the time. The colors of nature are our most beautiful colors. If I did a linky party, I might create a challenge to use one of the Pantone Colors of the Year — anyone want to pick this up?
As for me, I grabbed six blue placemats at Dollar Tree today. I didn’t know at the time that Dazzling Blue was one of Pantone’s Colors of the Year 2014. I just thought they looked beautiful and were something I needed in my stash. I can see lots of blue and white scenarios with these gems!
Who knew this ole gal was so trendy? Or is blue ALWAYS on trend? I welcome your thoughts…
