Emerald Isle

THE color to be in 2013 is…. Emerald! Why? According to Pantone,

“Emerald, a vivid verdant green, enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight as well as promoting balance and harmony…  [It is] the color of growth, renewal and prosperity, no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.”

What’s Your Color?

Colorstrology is an intriguing combination of astrology, numerology and color theory. It’s  basically your color horoscope. Each birthdate has a unique color in the same way that each birthdate has a unique sign. Some signs can work cohesively together, while others clash. The team at Pantone along with renowned astrologer Michele Bernhardt created this colorful insight into personality and experience.

According to my “birth color” I am;

FAR DEEPER than you appear, you have what it takes to go the distance. There is a lot more to you than meets the eye. You have a nice blend of wit and sensitivity and are known for your timing. You are meant to communicate and entertain…

Fascinating! I believe that colors and the reason people like/dislike colors important to understand especially in the design industry. My color, Heirloom Lilac, isn’t a color thwould be my first choice with all the rainbow at my disposal, but it calming and I find it quite pretty. Maybe Costrology is the future? Or maybe an aspect of design people use without knowing it. I can even put my “birth color” into a palette that I might actually use!

So what does your “birth color” say about you? Find out here.

The Color of 2011

Turquoise was the color of 2010, but it’s time to leave that behind. With all the colors I told you about for 2011 in my last article, Pantone has chosen which color will be THE color of 2011- Honeysuckle!

According to Pantone,

“In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues… Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage, and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.”

It’s the same idea with music, actually. In times of stress, record labels don’t release ballads or crooning love songs and choose instead the up tempo, catchy songs. That is of course why we have so many good dance songs lately. But, I digress. Think of Honeysickle as your favorite dance tune and splash it on! Wear it, paint it, embrace it. With this honor given to the beautiful color, I decided to give a little extra design inspiration.
