I’m so excited that spring officially arrives tomorrow! Don’t you just love the colors of spring? Each season, Pantone collects feedback on eye-catching collection colors and color inspiration from designers. The results of the surveys are used to create the PANTONE Fashion Color Report, which is used as a reference tool throughout the year by fashion and home designers. Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Spring 2010, Splashes of Sunshine, features the top 10 colors and my favorite has to be the violet!
Turquoise: cool, vibrant, tropical
Tomato Purée: classic red, tangy red
Fusion Coral: warmer, provocative orange
Violet: romantic, intriguing purplish hue

Amparo Blue: bright and energetic
Pink Champagne: wispy, bubbly and neutral

Also, Pantone’s color of the year for 2010 is Pantone 15-5519. “Turquoise is believed to be a protective talisman, a color of deep compassion and healing, and a color of faith and truth, inspired by water and sky,” Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®, said in a statement.
