So, 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.
September 3rd – Pantone 18-3211 Grapeade
So, I’ve decided that I probably should start sharing what Pantone says about its colour of the day. It’s only fair right?
For this mighty institution, Grapeade is resourceful, playful and talented.
Me? I find it a little aloof. It’s not quite conforming to the richness of an aubergine or true red grape and in my opinion, it’s not quite light enough for a mauve – although many people I’m sure will disagree.
It really seems to have its own agenda. To be separate. Alone. The Greta Garbo of pantone colours if you will.
So, with that in mind I have liberated Grapeade from its rich, opulent berry friends and placed it in a more relaxed setting.
If it really wants to do its own thing then perhaps we can create an environment it may be more comfortable in.
I’m not sure how big Rustic Minimalism can become, but I think it works for the “on a break” grapeade.
