OK, so me and winter are not the best of friends. Granted, I was born and raised here in WI and I don't see moving anytime soon. I have also been know to bundle myself up on occasion and try to make the best of what mother nature has to offer. Regardless, I consider myself a fairly tropical person. I prefer the warm weather and when it turns cold outside I can't help but think about the spring, the warmth of the sun, the new growth of the flowers and trees and of course the fun new color trends in fashion industry. Although I am not a fashionista, these color have a huge influence on wedding trends and thus trickle down to us floral designers.
Where does one look for trending colors? Pantone is the go to source for such answers. Who is Pantone you may ask? Well Pantone began as a commercial printing company in the 1950s. The company is best known for its Pantone Matching System (PMS), a proprietary color space used in a variety of industries, primarily printing, though sometimes in the manufacture of colored paint, fabric, and plastics. The idea behind the PMS is to allow designers to "color match" specific colors when a design enters production stage.
