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.


Prints + Patterns + Spaces: Watercolor

There is nothing quite like the fluidity of a watercolor painting. The way the paint is absorbed into paper fascinates me. Recently I’ve noticed a wave of watercolor-esque patterns and designs making their way into interiors, fashion, and accessories. I welcome this invasion and love the result.

This is a watercolor roundup for prints + patterns + spaces
