Fall Color Forecast for 2011

I can’t believe it’s the last full week of February already! This month has been filled with exciting new launches and announcements around the blogosphere and the two at the top of my list are Pantone’s Fall 2011 Color Report and the brand new BHLDN line (which I’ve mentioned before and I’m sure you’ve heard about 1,000 times by now).

I absolutely love the colors featured in Pantone’s latest color report and what struck me most about the BHLDN collection was the fact that the colors used in the line were so spot on with Pantone’s predictions. Case in point…

Pantone is describing these new colors as “Sensible and Spirited” which I think is a perfect fit. Fall colors tend to be dark and subdued but this year, there’s a sense of brightness and cheer, which I really like. Here’s the full list of colors. I particularly love Honeysuckle and that lovely shade of purple they’re calling Phlox.

What do you think of these colors? Anyone have a favorite?

    [...] – I love the color (it’s close to the color ‘Phlox’ which was just featured in Pantone’s 2011 Color Report) and it’s classic, timeless style. I also love the fact that you can rock it with casual [...]
