Spring 2015 Color Report
Pantone has just released their Spring 2015 color trend report, en plein air. The color palette features softer and cooler tones compared to year’s past to follow the new minimalistic theme. Pantone color specialists say this move is towards the simpler times and magical landscapes. En plein air takes a cue from nature and reminds people to take a mini escape from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives.

The cool tones within the palette create the perfect mix for your wedding colors, whether choosing the bold color of Marsala or the softer side of Dusk Blue or Custard, you can’t go wrong when making color combinations. Each color is beautiful on its own, but when two or three different colors are put together, like Strawberry Ice, Tangerine, and Woodbine. The unexpected combination of the bold and soft hues don’t clash like would be expected because of the cool undertones. Toasted Almond and Sandstone make up the season’s neutrals, and create the perfect addition to many of the season’s brighter colors.
Taking the colors in pairs or combinations gives a dramatic effect, but even having a single color from this palette is sure to wow your guests!
