Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for this spring is drool-worthy. From Placid Blue and Paloma to Dazzling Blue, I was — well — dazzled. My favorite, however, is Hemlock. It’s a more subdued version of mint green and the perfect spring-inspired hue. Pantone says, “Similar to the verdant shade of springtime foliage, Hemlock, a summery, ornamental green, provides a decorative touch that’s very different from the greens of recent seasons.” What’s your take on this versatile pastel?

We’re big fans of Pantone around here, so imagine our pure joy when Jessica Jones combined our love of the color experts with our favorite spring holiday by making these amazing Pantone Easter eggs.
The How About Orange blogger dip-dyed eggs in her favorite Pantone hues, then used an inkjet printer and temporary tattoo paper for the labels.
Why didn’t we think of that?
Fellow Honeysuckle lovers will rejoice when they hear the following news: Pantone LLC and Synta Inc., a craft paint manufacturer, have partnered to create a new collection of grab-and-go paints called MyColor inspired by Pantone. Perfect for do-it-yourselfers and designers on a budget, these 35-ounce, ready-to-go paints are an easy solution for adding a quick splash of color—in one of 49 hot Pantone shades—to a piece of furniture or craft project. MyColor is the first instant-use paint available in Pantone colors. There’s no waiting, no mixing, no tinting and certainly no surprises days after the paint dries. So, go crazy my friends. Sponge it on. Stencil it in. Or swipe it on with a paintbrush any way you want. (Think my boyfriend will like a Honeysuckle nightstand? Lamp? We can surely compromise on a lamp.)
MyColor inspired by Pantone offers invigorating hues in seven different collections. Which top MyColor paint collection matches your home the most? The bold Vibrance Collection, the fresh Floral Collection, or the Naturelle Collection inspired by the Great Outdoors?

With the end of Fashion Week, I can only imagine the industry buzz surrounding the spring/summer 2012 clothing trends and styles we’ll see next year. So of course, I was super excited to see the recent release of Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Spring 2012. The report features the top 10 colors for women’s fashion for spring 2012. And with enticing names like Margarita (Pantone 14-0116) and Tangerine Tango (Pantone 17-1463), I’m dying to skip over a few seasons (sorry Mother Nature) to fully engulf myself in these luscious hues. For spring, designers are especially inspired by diverse influences and lifestyles, creating contemporary classics, vivid brights and fun-loving pastels. We found some of Pantone’s new beauties in some of our favorite spaces. Take a look!
