Pantone Fall Color Report

The Pantone's Color Report always makes my creative nose twitch.  I just saw this today, thanks to Vintaj on twitter.  

I'm seriously crushing on every color - except honeysuckle, I'm not buying it for more than the smallest of accents.  Oh, I need a few extra hours to play with colors.  I would love to mix these up for a series of beads.  Maybe my Bead of the Month club folks will get something inspired by a few of these colors.  Yep, that's what I'm thinking.

I'm having a hard time picking a favorite - I think it's the Orchid Hush, it's reminds me of these October Sky beads that I made last year:

What's your favorite color from the Pantone Fall palette?

Those colors are great! I really love them. I'm not a pink girl in general but maybe that honeysuckle can be used just sparingly. The cedar, phlox and deep teal are my favorites. Thanks for sharing.

They all make my nose twitch...I am working on revamping my website, and I am liking cedar, deep teal and coffee liqueur together!

I'm digging that teal- in fact I like the cedar and coffee liqueur next to it, which is a little unexpected for me. The people that name these colors are so creative, aren't they? And by the way, the "October Sky" beads you made...oh-my-gorgeous, Heather!

i kind of like them all. i don't like pink either, but i do like it with orange. so i'm kind of digging the honeysuckle right next to the emberglow. i like sherbet-flavored pieces, esp. with a nice dark brown brass. love that orchid crush--it's a kind of periwinkle, which i adore. my set of humblebeads spacers (which i am (hoarding) is periwinkle and brown with white. love them! (i think i got some inspiration for them today...) to pick a fave...hmm...i'm thinking the orchid too. this is fun to look at, to mix and match.

I'm kinda groovin' on the bamboo, although the phlox and cedar together are quite yummy.

Absolutely Deep Teal....I don't like Bamboo though! Not my shade - I'm not a mustard girl. But the rest....gorgeous, especially in combination. Deep teal and Coffee Liqueur....mmmhhh

bamboo, teal ,emberglow , cedar, and quarry are my favs...they can keep that Honeysuckle ..it's not for me.

Debbie / Prairie Emporium said...

I think deep teal and cedar. Looks like fun, playing with all the colors.

Gail said...

Honeysuckle is Pantone's color of the year. I actually really like the color, but would only use it in small doses. My favorites are the orchid blush and phlox, but I like them all. I love color!

I have 2: honeysuckle and phlox

Elaine said...

Most of them aren't bad!

I particularly like the deep teal, the cedar and the coffee liqueur but they're all usable colours!

My Life Under the Bus said...

Yes I'm loving the Quarry too!... and that nougat is reminding me of your sunset willows!

quickcer said...

My favorites are honeysuckle, deep teal and coffee liqueur. I would like to see a combo of the coffee and teal in a humblebead. Very pretty!!
