With Denise, Of Bellis Studios!

I wasn’t too sure where to go with this weeks color inspiration.  Then I opened an email from Pantone and BAM, color inspiration overload!!!  Pantone released their Fall 2011 Fashion Color Report yesterday.  Even though this is their Fall Report, I think there’s plenty of inspiration here for the Summer and even Spring bride.  Where do I start?  I have inspiration for several weeks here…

Thank you Pantone!!

The first thing that hit me was the cover of the report:

I’m partial to yellow, especially that yellow!  Pantone is calling it ‘Bamboo.’:

“Bamboo, a surprising fall hue, brings a warm, exotic flavor to the season.  Like a filtered sunset on the waning days of fall, Bamboo is a standout yellow with a subtle green undertone.  This dappled shade pairs dramatically with several of the top 10, including Phlox, Teal and Honeysuckle.”

Oh that Honeysuckle, Pantone’s 2011 Color of the Year!  I’ll say Bamboo pairs dramatically with it, remember my first post.  I teamed it up with Snapdragon, a shade of yellow that’s very close to Bamboo.

That’s not all that hit me.  Bamboo is the color I use in my ‘Katie’ Sunflower invitations!  I call it Curry, but it has the same green undertones.  I just finished printing the ‘Katie’ invite for a Spring bride, but we switched out the black for Eggplant.  Eggplant, hmm… very similar to Phlox don’t you think?  The results were gorgeous!

I’ve got Spring and Summer on my mind and I really don’t want to rush through them!  I’ll pretend we’re not talking Fall just yet and focus on the beautiful colors instead.  So what do you think of this palette?  Take the Pantone color survey and let me know what you picked!

Thanks for your guest post, Denise!  Brides, if you love her sunflower design and absolutely must have it for your own wedding, contact her by visiting her online at Bellis Studios.  Happy planning!
