PANTONE Spring Color Forecast

December 28, 2009 at 7:00 pm 6 comments

Most people are well aware of the PANTONE Spring Color Forecast for 2010 where PANTONE has named Turquoise the color of 2010. I get so excited every year to see their new forecasts. They are always so inspiring and really help to predict upcoming trends. This forecast inspires everything from fashion to home interior decor to jewelry and, with all of that, also inspires upcoming wedding color trends. While the Home & Interior color trends are much more in-depth than the pdf in the link above, you’ll see how the color families all relate.

If you’re a computer user and are well aware of your PANTONE Matching System (PMS) color books in your design software, you’ll see that none of these color numbers in the linked pdf match your colors. These colors listed are the PMS fabric colors. Here are your computer equivalents:

Now these colors all look like a jumbled up mess. How will they ever relate to a solid color scheme for a wedding? Continue reading and see a few color combinations I have put together using only these colors shown plus black and gray. In addition to these combos, I have added corresponding names and suggested typefaces that would make for an all-inclusive feel for an event. Let me know your thoughts! Which combination would you choose for your wedding?
