My 2013 Pantone Spring

There are signs of Spring already in Northern California.  Our daffodils are pushing up shoots and rainbows are appearing as grey clouds come and go.

For those of you still under snow and freezes I hope this gives you hope!

It's time to see what colors Pantone has announced for this Spring!

Pantone 2013 Spring Fashion
Many seem to be sort of dusty with hues given more white to take them more to a pastel.  I really like the Dusk Blue with Lemon Zest.  I just bought a cell phone cover the color of Tender Shoots so that's obviously grabbing me.  A purple is always in my palette so maybe African Violet with Lemon Zest or Tender Shoots will show up in some new earrings.

In my shops you'll find some of these colors that will go with the new colors you are seeing in the clothing boutiques.

  1. I have a serious case of spring fever! Would love to see daffodils.

    I like the variety in the Spring Pantone colors. Very hard to pick a favorite, but the grayed jade is a nice calming color.

  2. I'm loving this year's spring colors!
    And I'm super jealous of your beautiful weather and rainbows!

  3. such pretty pieces! loving the pantone colors. We're on our way out to the Bay Area and can't wait to get a little early spring!

  4. These are all beauties but the Sailor's Valentine melted my cold eastern heart.
