"Preserving Time for Generations to Come"

What colour will be the new trend? October 23, 2012

I woke up this morning to 10 cm of fresh white snow, and it’s only 1 week before Halloween.  The joy of living in Canada, near the mountains, where one needs to have your Halloween costume fit over your snow suit!   Already hoping that winter is over, when it hasn’t already even hit, has made me look forward to the Spring 2013 colours!

In 2012, the colour of the year was Tangerine, in 2011 it was honeysuckle.   Who’s the trend setter of colour?

Have you heard of Pantone?  Pantone is a subsidiary of X-Rite, which is the global leader in colour science, and technology.   Pantone is the source for colour, over 2,100 new colours have been created, which determines what colours will be in fashion for clothing, home decor to even paint!  I often would look to Pantone, when I was designing jewelry, so I would know what were the new fashion colours, to match with the semi precious stones I would use in creating.  Now, I look to Pantone, to see what colours are going to affect my photography props, and to recommend different colour palates for what to wear, accessorize, accent colours.

The predicament is that the “Monaco Blue” will be 2013 new colour trend…or perhaps “Poppy Red”…  We still have grey tones, which will look stunning with these two colours.    See the new colours for women for Spring 2013  and for Men for Spring 2013

Here is a great example for a  Monaco Blue and Poppy Red wedding
