Colour Your World | #19 Pantone Serenity

“Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, Pantone 15-3919 Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing a feeling of respite even in turbulent times. A transcendent blue, Pantone Serenity provides us with a naturally connected sense of space” — Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director – Pantone Colour Institute When I read …

Colour Your World | #17 Pantone Rose Quartz {Colour Of The Year 2016}

It’s the first of my Pantone posts for 2016 and what better way to start of than with one of their hotly anticipated colours of the year? This year Pantone have bucked the trend and chosen not one but two colours.

Colour Your World | #15 Pantone Sandstone

Since I began this series, although I’ve created home and womens’ fashion collections — based on the Pantone shades — I haven’t focussed on kids’ fashion at all. I guess, when you think of fashion for little ones, brights spring to mind or — at the very least — the stereotypical ‘pink for a girl, blue for a boy’. A colour that I certainly …
