Pantone's Fall 2011: Everything Old is New and Improved!

The Must-Have Color Trends for Fall 2011 were released yesterday and it is truly an exciting palette of colors!

"Designers take a painterly approach to fall 2011 by artfully
combining bright colors with staple neutrals, reminiscent of
how an artist would construct a stunning work of art,”

-Leatrice Eisman Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute



Here are the colors for this upcoming season.

With purple being my favorite color (unbelievably to many...it is not turquoise), I was excited to see the shade of purple "Phlox" on the palette. One of our very fashion forward brides actually selected this color for her fall wedding at the Buena Vista Palace! The one thing I truly love about the color is it can be paired with so many colors and tones and still be very sharp and classy. This year is our purple year over at Joie de Vie as many brides have walked in the door with a shade of purple in their palette!

Here is a snippet of what they had to say about the new color "Phlox":
Phlox, a magical, deep purple with a hint of mystery, is an outstanding
statement when worn on its own. Add Phlox to this season’s neutrals
to create a bit of drama, or combine it with Cedar, Deep Teal or Coffee
Liqueúr for something extraordinary. To add even more excitement, pair
Phlox with Honeysuckle or Bamboo against a Cedar background — a
combination inspired by Mother Nature.

Get the full Fall 2011 Report by clicking here. We also have copies of the report at our planning studio. If you would like to see past Fashion Reports, we have the 2010 reports here. The report offers great insight and suggestions on how to pair the colors with your favorite staples as well as and inside view on what the trendsetters and designers are doing with the colors. Ironically, we selected are colors for Bridal Ball yesterday and incorporated a few of these colors without having seen the report!

We have full copies of the report in our planning studio, give us a call if you would like to stop by and read the report and get your own copy! Are you using any of these colors for your wedding? Tell us about them!

Until next time,
