PANTONE, Inc., the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems, has announced the â€œnewâ€ colors for the fall 2010 season.
Instead of deep, rich colors for fall, similar to what we see in nature, we are being exposed to deepened pastels and coastal colors, with a hint of rich chocolate.
Endive is a revitalizing yellow-green, while Golden Glow is an earthy, deepened shade of yellow. Living Coral is the perfect compliment to the new color, Lagoon. Lipstick Red is a deeper, dramatic sensual red. Exotic Purple Orchid, is a purple that leans more towards fuchsia, and Chocolate Truffle is a rich brown with piquant plum undertones. Lagoon is this seasons turquoise and the 2010 Color of the Year. Woodbine takes last season’s neutral greens to a whole new level. Oyster Gray is the neutral in this palette, and Rose Dust is a flattering beige that has a romantic, wispy feel to it.
With the announcement of this seasons colors, we here at the wedding blog have decided to put together some combination looks that would be great inspiration for a fall 2010 wedding color palettes.
Living Coral, Lagoon and Rose Dust
This palette allows the changing of the colors outside to stay outside, and the colors of a coastal retreat replace them. It is fresh, fun and bright.
Lipstick Red, Chocolate Truffle and Rose Dust
This palette is rich, romantic and classy. The Chocolate Truffle and Lipstick Red create a romantic atmosphere, while the Rose Dust lightens up the palette.
Golden Glow, Endive and Woodbine
This palette is ideal for the outdoorsy couple. It draws in the richness from the outside, however the colors are more from the summer months. The Woodbine green is what we see once the trees have grown and flowered, the Endive is a lighter version of the Woodbine, and the Golden Glow reflects the light that comes from the sun. Bringing the natural summer colors into fall will allow any couple to enjoy an extended summer, with less heat.
Purple Orchid, Endive and Oyster Gray
This palette, similar to the previous, is an extension of another season. But instead of summer, it is the spring season. The Endive and Oyster Gray or neutral and fresh, while the Purple Orchid makes the palette pop with color. This palette would work perfectly in an outdoor wedding because the colors would stand out next to the natural colors that are common in the fall months.
What kind of ideas come to mind when you see the newly announced fall 2010 wedding color palette? Leave your comments for me here at the wedding blog, I would love to hear them!
