Pantone Color of the Year 2016 {Color Palette Monday}

June 13, 2016 - by Preeti

When Pantone first announced it's Color of the Year for 2016, I was disappointed.

More like, ugh.

Baby pink and baby blue really? I know you call them fancy names, Rose Quartz and Serenity, but seriously?

But now, they've grown on me and I'm starting to fall in love with them. Like really fall in love with them.

The colors are great for a rustic, vintage, lacy type wedding. For a bride who wants something elegant but understated. These are NOT your jewel tone colors of brightness and pizazz (like emerald and marsala), but rather delicate and ethereal.

Here's my special Color Palette Monday moodboard in honor of 2016 Pantone Color of Year.
