Pantone Colours

Pantone 18-3628

A new year and new colours from Pantone. We've already looked at the colour of 2012, Tangerine Tango, a vibrant orange. Today I'm taking a closer look at Bellfower. Pantone describes it as,

fanciful Bellflower, a distinct ornamental purple, exudes uniqueness and creativity.

Creativity seems to be the prevail mood throughout the colours for spring. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute said that,

“Consumers look to spring for renewed energy, optimism and the promise of a brighter day. They have learned how color can help them alter a mood, while providing the vitality and enthusiasm that enables them to experiment with new looks and color combinations.”

In the dark days of January in the middle of a recession we need something to alter our mood and give us a lift. Here's what the good people at Etsy have to offer.

Have a great weekend everyone!

The treasury is gorgeous! The color and the items are great. And I thought Bellflower was only a suburb in Los Angeles.
