    Inspired By: Rose Quartz & Serenity


    Photo Via: Pantone

    It’s that time of year again folks, where Pantone announces the color that will inspire and influence many creative minds. This year, Pantone chose dual colors, that when combined together creates a warm glow like a summer’s sunset over a desert. That vision may be deep for some, but that’s what I picture when I see rose quartz and serenity intertwined. It is a pleasant sight. Last year’s Marsala was richer and earthier, bringing in deep burgundy tones. However, seeing rose quartz in all its pink glory truly excites me. As you may noticed, pink is a favorite around here, so it’s sparking my creative juices. I’m also happy to see other creatives inviting warm pinks and gentle blues into their lives. Here is my take on the tonal inspiration:

    Marsala Style – Part Eéji

    While NY Fashion Week is nearing to an end, I figured a Part 2 of Marsala style was in order.  In my first Marsala post, I introduced Marsala as the Pantone Color of the Year for 2015.  This time, I wanted to gather inspiration on its wearability.  To be honest, it wears much like Oxblood or a deep Burgundy, so if you’re used to wearing those colors you are ahead of the game.  If you aren’t, experiment, this is a rich and saturated Autumn/Winter color.  Hey, you may find a new color love! So, grab a cup of tea, and dive into some Marsala inspiration.

    In the design and beauty world, Pantone colors are everything.  They can be used to inspire your style, artwork, home decor, and even your beauty selections.  Every year, Pantone introduces their “it” color of the year and Marsala is it.  With its exotic name, it’s as visually inspiring as it sounds.  This burgundy berry saturated color can inspire your next lipstick purchase, nail color purchase, paint color purchase…you name it.  How would you incorporate this color into your everyday design and beauty style?
