Spring color trends and boho, sexy must-haves

Pink is my favorite color … But, when contemplating color choices for my ThoughtfulContent logo, I was drawn to turquoise.  I”m sure it has some sub-conscious girlie-affiliation with Tiffany”s.  For whatever reason, to me, the turquoise/black combo exudes grace and simplicity…   It turns out I wasn”t the only one drawn to turquoise last year. Pantone,the global authority on color named it 2010″s Color of the Year.

For 17 years, Pantone has surveyed the designers of New York Fashion Week to determine the most important color trends. Fashion Week kicks off September 8th and with it, the Pantone report previewing the most prominent hues for spring 2011.

Even if you”re not interested in fashion or color… reading about the inspiration behind the colors is insightful:

“Citing exotic destinations like Africa, India, Peru and Turkey as inspiration for spring 2011, designers continue to satisfy consumers” need to casino online escape everyday challenges with intriguing color combinations that transport them to foreign lands.”

If you are into fashion and color… you”ll enjoy each designer”s must-have item for the season. I”m digging Cynthia Steffe by Shaun Kearney”s “modern take on boho – a sexy, silk laser-cut off-the-shoulder dress in a vibrant shade of Pink” (or, Honeysuckle as we”ll soon be calling it….)

P.S. From a marketing perspective, this is a clever e-book. It”s packed with interesting, useful and entertaining info for its target – designers of all kind (I found it via lifestyle expert, Kelley L Moore).  If you scroll to the end, they”re selling Pantone products, Pantone for the iphone… and Pantone credit cards for the truly passionate color-istas.

 

How about you, what color are you drawn to at the moment?
