Pantone's Top Colors for Spring 2014

Image Events by Elaine

Pantone recently came out with their top colors picks for Spring, 2014!  It's fun to see Pantone's tops picks for the new season. This color palette consists of "pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom." says Pantone. So let's dive into this lovely list!

1. Radiant Orchid

The 2014 Color of the Year! Pantone defines it as "a captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones",  an expressive, creative and embracing purple" that "emanates great joy, love and health." It's elegant, romantic and flatters any skin tone.

Pair  Radiant Orchid with  Dazzling BlueHemlock, Freesia

2. Dazzling Blue

Described as "a peppy shade of cobalt", "a polar opposite to  Placid Blue",this color is full of elegance, beauty and richness and is associated with royalty and all things bright.

Pair Dazzling Blue with Celosia Orange,Radiant Orchid, Freesia, or Hemlock  

Our collection of Dazzling Blue accessories: Rose necklace, the Armor of God bracelet, Persian Nights necklace, Lola keychain.

3. Celosia Orange

This is another of my favorite shades for Spring, I find it lively and fun. I suggest pairing this fiery hue with  Dazzling Blue for high impact or Placid Blue for an easy, breezy look! 

An advice from Pantone: "Pair Celosia Orange with Violet Tulip  for a captivating vision, much like the setting summer sun."

Add a touch of color to your purse with the Lola keychain!

This happy hue captures all the goodness of a beautiful sunshine filled day! I suggest pairing Freesia with Dazzling Blue, (again!!) or Paloma (gray).
Pantone says: " Cayenne heightens the excitement when mixed with Freesia" ... Ohh la la!!

The Cartagena Necklace will definitely take you away from the cold!

5. Cayenne

Defined by Pantone as “a high-pitched red, adds a dash of spicy heat to neutrals,and "heightens the excitement when mixed with Freesia" I absolutely love this deep coral hue. Warm, eye-catching and captivating!

Pair Cayenne  with Dazzling Blue, or Hemlock

6.  Placid Blue

It's another shade that made the list and  it's just "like a picture-perfect, tranquil and reassuring sky, induces a sense of peaceful calmness".

Pair Placid Blue with Dazzling Blue,Radiant Orchid or Celosia Orange "for an au courant look."  

This Gaia bracelet surely captures the colors of the sky, the sea and the sand!

It's "a romantic, vintage purple" that  "evokes wistful nostalgia" says Pantone. I suggest pairing this sweet shade of purple with Placid Blue, Radiant Orchid or Hemlock.

Green orange peel roses and bombona seeds in violet make for a beautiful necklace that is both easy to wear and a conversation piece.

8.  Paloma
A pretty neutral, "interesting enough to be worn alone or combined with any color for sophisticated poise". 
Pair  Paloma with bolder hues such as Dazzling Blue,  Radiant Orchid, Cayenne or  Freesia.
9.   Hemlock
Hello Pistachio! This pretty, super-pale green "provides a decorative touch that's very different from the greens of recent seasons" says Pantone. Wear Hemlock tone on tone with a brighter shade of green. Or for a less expected combination, choose a complementary red-based hue such as Cayenne Violet Tulip, or (if you're feeling daring),Radiant Orchid.

10. Sand
Ahh .. we love this neutral! Pantone defines it as "a lightly toasted and amiable neutral, conjures images of the beach and the carefree days of summer. " and we couldn't agree more!!
Try pairing Sand with Dazzling Blue to achieve a nautical inspired look. Or consider mixing it with Cayenne or Celosia Orange  for a palette that will surely wow!

So what do you think? Any favorites that stand out for you?
