Totally Teal

I found this board when searching for ideas for a upcoming bridal show. I think Teal can be a very elegant color choice for weddings.  A couple of floral colors come to mind  that work really well with the teal tones. Peach/ soft orange colors are soft and compliment lighter teal tones.  In bold  brighter shades orange and teal  make a statement.  Purple is rich and regal and works with the currently popular peacock color combo. Burgundy and teal make a surprising but beautiful color combination.
In this case teal stands alone and sparkles.  This board makes me think of a beautiful winter wedding, although I also see teal working well for a beach wedding theme.
  Any 2011 takers?  :)

Honeysuckle: The hot color for 2011

 Pantone just released its hot color list for 2011 and the top color they chose is called Honeysuckle, a vibrant pink with orange undertones. This is what I found when checking out what people had to say about this choice of color:

"Last year's Pantone color of the year was turquoise because of its calming effect (much-needed after a tumultuous 2009). This year, they're forecasting a way more vibrant color: Honeysuckle! According to Pantone Color Institute Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman, “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." by Ariel Kaiser, The Thread Stylist

The 2011 choice for Pantone color of the year was intended to be “warmer” choice than the 2010 Pantone color of the year: turquoise. The reddish-pink 2011 Pantone color of the year is honeysuckle, which is named after the flower. There are about 180 different species of honeysuckle, and the most popular attract hummingbirds. The flower comes in a wide variety of colors, though the reddish-pink color is the most vibrant. The 2011 Pantone color of the year is just one color that is a part of Pantone’s palate for 2011. Complimentary colors to honeysuckle include russet — an orange coral rose — a blue regatta, a light green peapod and other red, orange and blue hues.

Checking out up and coming colors can give you ideas for your wedding as well as fashion and interior color decisions.
