Color Emphasis: Nectarine

Ian and I love orange. When Pantone announced the 2012 color of the year as “Tangerine Tango” I was thrilled. Since it is already September [crazyyyy] I started to worry that the vibrant oranges were going to fade away when 2013 starts. I was thrilled to see the colors introduced in the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2013. My favorite is Nectarine – a softer orange that reminds me of a creamsicle. Since I follow Pantone on twitter I found out about a super fun contest which inspired today’s roundup. I love when things can double for fun + blogging – that’s what it should be all about! You can read the rules and think about entering! The contest ends on September 27, at 12 pm PT.

What color is your favorite out of the Pantone Spring 2013 colors? Let me know and maybe I’ll feature it for a future Color Emphasis.

    Even though I think it’s kind of crazy that someone actually sits down and decides which colors will be “in” next year, I am thrilled that bright colors are going to be around for while!

    I always love the images you pull together and thanks for the link to Pantones 2013 colours. For me it would have to be Monaco Blue – Im really loving dark inky blue right now and this one is a little lighter and greyed which will be perfect after winter and heading into Spring. Pared with linen, lovely!

      Yes Niki I love the linen and Monaco Blue combo – I could see it in a stripe pattern as an updated and more modern nautical look. I’m happy to hear you love the images and enjoyed the link. :)
