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 13th – Pantone 12-5406 Opal Blue
When researching a board, you often end up taking a completely different direction that the one you had mapped out.
Opal Blue is one of those colours where we ended up somewhere we never intended.
Finding this colour today on the Pantone website, I thought…..cool, sheer, fragile.
However, a camper van literally took me in a different direction.
This is the same with many of the events we plan. Sometimes something happens which makes us, or the clients re-think our destination. That’s no bad thing. We do what is best for the event.
I always encourage clients to be open-minded, to be flexible when it comes to the planning process. Of course, have your ideas, your dreams, your must-haves, it’s just that sometimes life surprises us and so it’s advisable to be a little prepared for that.
I often look at the “Colourstrology”, the three key words that Pantone issues with every “Colour of the Day” and, confession time, I’m often bemused. However, looking at our finished board, maybe it’s time to believe.
Practical, builder. driver…..I’ll let you decide.
