Pantone Pink Flambé Inspiration Board

We’re back this week with another Pantone inspired wedding color theme that is perfectly on trend for fall 2012, but would work just as well year round. Pink Flambé is a vibrant shade of rose pink, with a bit of a kick. It’s the perfect hue to incorporate in your wedding decor through flowers and fancy desserts.

2012 Trends: Punchy Colors

Color is really catching our eye for 2012. The bolder and brighter, the better! Our new collection by the talented illustrator, Stina Persson, is a perfect representation of this pop hues trend, so we used one of our favorite designs as the starting point for today’s inspiration board. These gorgeous shades of aqua and chartreuse seem tropical, but with a fresh and modern flair.
