Now that it is officially summer, it is time to break out the dynamic color schemes for any occasion happening this season.
A trend we are seeing is an increased use of bright, bold, non-traditional colors, emerging in bridesmaids’ dresses, flowers, and the even the décor at your event. Like the photograph shown, brides are combining exciting shades of pinks, reds, and greens and creating their own individual signature syles. One particular color that is popping up everywhere is Honeysuckle and was even named Pantone Color Institute’s 2011 Color of the Year.
A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive shade in the spectrum.”
