pantone color report: spring 2016.

pantone spring 2016 color report // graphic by @luvfromafar

Happy weekend! I know it has been a hot second since my last post, but I promise it is because I have a lot of great stuff coming your way very soon. I have also been giving myself the time I need to adjust to this whole working mom gig, without feeling like I always have a computer in front of me when {jv} is asleep. Thank you for bearing with me ;)

It has become a bit of a tradition for me to illustrate each spring's Pantone Color Report. I like to see how the colors all work together, as well as how they vary from year to year. (See for yourself -- here are the reports from the last three years: 2015, 2014, and 2013.) While Pantone hasn't released the color of the year yet (I'll update this post when they do), I don't see any runaway surprises like last year's Marsala. I think this year's top ten colors are a solid mix. Some years, the colors are all very muted or extremely bold. I actually like that there is a little of both for Spring 2016.

What are your favorites from the bunch? 
I'm loving on the classic blue with a muted finish, Snorkel Blue, and the bright and bold red, Fiesta!
Lots more soon! xoxo {av}

  1. I love your yearly color report! And it's nice to see a mix of bolds and muted tones - the neutral focus continues but with a couple full saturation accent colors in there!

  3. Do you know you have been my go-to source on the color report for probably the last 3? 4? (more??) years?! I'm hoping Lilac Gray + Serenity find their way into the high street fashion world this year... I feel like I'm always on the hunt for shades of light purple and yet almost always end up empty-handed.

  4. I love Peach Echo and Lilac Gray (that would be great for interior color too)!

  8. What an excellent compilation! I am now on my high-level coursework writing about the color psychology of customer behavior, so your article is fascinating for me. Thank you for sharing it on your blog.
