Everyday Pebblefish publishes an inspiration board for the Pantone Colour Of The Day……yep that is an actual thing. Go on, check it out for yourself here.
Sometimes the colours are a joy, sometimes not so great, others simply inexplicable. We don’t get to choose them, however we do accept the challenge.
We try to make the content on these boards truly different, whether it be by event type, décor, food, fashion, flowers, lighting, venue……you get the picture.
However our main inspiration in putting these boards together, is to inspire you.
October 11th – Pantone 16-3815 Viola
When working on inspiration boards, we approach each differently depending on the client’s brief and personality, the type of event and ultimately the reason for the board in the first place.
With some we may need to be quite literal.
With others it’s about pushing boundaries of fashion and colour.
Sometimes it’s simply about showing how well colours work together.
And at times, we are trying to create a sense of environment, of ambience, of feeling.
Today’s board was about creating a sense of the other. Removing the event from a known place and time and creating its own existence if you will.
So yes, otherworldy and fantastical it may be, but even with just three images there is a sense of colour and storytelling and experience that helps start a conversation and the evolution of a more detailed event plan.
So, from this we can talk about lighting, decor, colour palette, table centre-pieces, invitations…….the list is endless.
An inspiration board is just that, inspiration, it’s how you translate that inspiration that matters most.
