Fall Colors in Wedding Design – Part 1


Pantone Color Institute Fall 2009 Color Chart


The Fall Colors in Wedding Design for this year are very robust, vivid colors that catch the eye as written about in the Pantone Color Institute Fall Color Report 2009.  This report forecasts what colors are hot this fall in fashion.   And as we all know, the trends in fashion dictate the color trends in floral and interior design as well. 

Each season, Pantone surveys the designers of New York Fashion Week in February to identify the 10 most directional colors. Like a painter’s palette, fall 2009 offers choice and diversity, but the unique integration of colors is what makes it so appealing. 

We will examine the different color combinations in several blog posts.  

The first color combination I would like to showcase is Purple Heart and Honey Yellow.  A warmer, more subdued Honey Yellow carries the 2009 color of the year, PANTONE 14-0848 Mimosa, through to fall and winter with its golden tones. Pairing Honey Yellow with its color wheel opposite, Purple Heart, will surely add a surprising flair. 

Check-out this lovely Inspiration Board displaying how wonderful these colors work with one another.  To see the 2009 Pantone Color Institute Fall Color Report, click on “COLOR”.

 Enjoy Beauty!
