With Denise, of Bellis Studios!

Hello everyone! This is Denise, from Bellis Studios. Jaime has invited me to do a few guest posts on one of my favorite things, color. To kick things off, I picked Pantone’s 2011 color of the year: Honeysuckle (Pantone 18-2120). It’s a bright pink, with lots of red in it.

Admittedly, I was a little surprised by it at first. Why would Pantone pick such a bright color? According to Pantone, “Energizing honeysuckle lifts spirits and imparts confidence to meet life’s ongoing challenges.” If you think about it, it really makes sense. This recession has been going on forever and we’re all ready for some spirit lifting!

I teamed honeysuckle up with an equally confident color, snapdragon (Pantone 14-0827). I think they play quite nicely together!

You can read more about Pantone’s 2011 color of the year here.

If you like the dresses shown in my inspiration board, you can find them at The Dessy Group. They carry all sorts of styles in Pantone colors like honeysuckle and snapdragon.

After working with this gorgeous color, I had to design an invitation using it. A touch of snapdragon yellow and soft natural green accents. Perfect for a spring or summer wedding! If you’re interested in this design, let me know and I’ll make up some comps. You can find me over at Bellis Studios.

Thank you Jaime for allowing me to guest post. I’ll be back next Friday with more color inspiration!
