Pantone Fall Color Inspirations

I haven't even started enjoying summer yet and fall is already on the horizon. Actually, more than fall - Bead Fest in Philadelphia and thinking ahead to fall designs for the show is on the horizon! 

When I was designing a new line of beads for fall and samples for an upcoming event I turned to several sources for my inspiration. And when I was struggling with colors, I pulled out the Pantone Fall 2015 top 10 colors and went to town! 

The Pantone palette this season is inspired by the evolving landscape and finds it's inspiration in what they are calling haute hippie, with roots from fashion from the 70's. I really like the muted colors as a starting point.


You can read the color report here and see some Pinterest inspiration here. What do you think? Any color calling your name? For me, I love Biscay Bay, Cashmere Rose and Oak Buff - what a combo!

Reflecting Pond and Desert Sage are my go-to's, but I have to say I love the way you've used Oak Buff in these beads, Heather. Have to give that one another look!

Definitely a palette in my wheelhouse! Wonderful. Thanks, Heather.

I always find the Pantone palettes such great inspiration. I've been pulling many of these colors out lately without having seen the Fall forecast so I'll enjoy working with them over the next few months! These are incredible beads, as always!!! xo -- Julie
