a colorful spring palette

By the time April rolls around, we’re all ready for refreshing, rejuvenating new colors. Bright, cheerful, and jubilant hues abound. Outside, plants grow and bloom into beautiful sprays of life. The sun shines brighter, and the sky seems more vividly blue.

But you won’t just find spring colors in nature — refresh your home and wardrobe by choosing art, decor, and apparel in these spring colors chosen by Pantone:

Spring 2015 Pantone

PANTONE-14-4313-TPX aquamarineAquamarine

Aquamarine is an airy blue with a dreamy feel. Cool and calming, ethereal Aquamarine is a shade with a wet and watery feel. Open and expansive, this restful blue also acts as a stress reducer.”

 

PANTONE-16-4725-TPX scuba blueScuba Blue

Even though a cool shade, the vibrancy of Scuba Blue adds a splash of excitement to the palette. Scuba Blue offers a feeling of escape as it is reminiscent of a tropical ocean. This stirring and energizing shade takes us off to an exotic paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy.”

 

PANTONE-14-5714-TPX lucite greenLucite Green

“Fresh and clarifying, cool and refreshing, Lucite Green has a minty glow. Light in weight and also in tone, Lucite Green seems almost transparent.”

 

 

PANTONE-19-4052-TPX classic blueClassic Blue

Reliable and thoughtful, Classic Blue inspires calm, confidence, and harmony. Just as with the sea, because of its waterborne qualities, this Classic Blue is perceived as thoughtful and introspective.”

 

PANTONE-16-1720-TPX strawberry iceStrawberry Ice

“Aptly named, Strawberry Ice is suggestive of a cooling and refreshing delicacy, yet its warmth as a color is quite appealing. Both tasty and tasteful, Strawberry Ice is a confection color that evokes a feeling of being ‘in the pink,’ emitting a flattering and healthy glow.

 

PANTONE-15-1247-TPX tangerineTangerine

Spontaneous and gregarious, Tangerine is a juicy orange shade that is energizing, yet not jarring to the eye. Good natured and friendly, but with a tangy edge, this fun-loving color invites a smile.”

 

PANTONE-13-0720-TPX custardCustard

“Just as the name implies, Custard is a delicious and delectable yellow. Sweet and sunny, Custard is a cheering tone that brings thoughts of pleasant relaxation and comfort food. Engaging with its soft and mellow warmth and full of good feelings, subtle Custard has an affable and easy disposition.

 

PANTONE-18-1438-TPX marsalaMarsala

Sensual and bold, delicious Marsala is a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind, and soul. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while it’s grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”

PANTONE-16-4120-TPX dusk blueDusk Blue

Reminiscent of the blue sky above, Dusk Blue is ultimately dependable and faithful. In a world that has become increasingly chaotic, the nostalgic Dusk Blue enables us to retreat into a safe place of quiet blue calm.”

 

PANTONE-18-0135-TPX treetopTreetop

Treetop is a healthy harmonious green from nature which offers a reassuring presence. Physiologically affecting the nervous system, this soothing green hue causes us to breathe slowly and deeply, helping the heart to relax by slowing the production of stress hormones.”

 

PANTONE-18-0538-TPX woodbineWoodbine

A classic yellow-green that could be used with anything and everything, Woodbine is a hue of foliage, grass, and growing plants. Inexorably linked to our sense of smell, Woodbine is evocative of a freshly mown lawn or a flourishing palm frond.”

 

PANTONE-16-3310-TPX lavender herbLavender Herb

Lavender Herb is a shade that intrigues the eye. Lavender Herb is also a creative shade; one that will add a distinctive color pop whether on its own or combined with other spring colors.”

 

These vibrant, revitalizing colors can be found throughout Artful Home — but we’ve pulled together collections of fresh blues, tender greens, warm pinks, sunny yellows, cheerful oranges, and lovely purples. You can also find extraordinary works of art in our Spring 2015 Pantone board on Pinterest. We’d love to hear about what colors you’re drawn to this season — let us know in the comments.

    This is the loveliest post I have ever seen. So wonderful to see the Pantone spring colors paired with artistic creations. This sets my mind to dreaming about what I want to see when I wake up, when I eat and when I look in the mirror.

    Kudos to the authors! You have made my day.
