With Spring comes revival. All those dead plants seem to rise up from the grave and stretch. I’m sure you may even have some friends that probably go into hibernation until it’s all over. There’s nothing like seeing those first seedlings sprouting from the earth. Your lucky day is coming, it will be here soon so don’t fret there’s still hope!

Pantone has listed Lucite Green one of The Colors of Spring: 2015. What is Pantone? For those of you unfamiliar with it, we’ll give you the scoop! Pantone is the utmost authority on color matching and management. You’re probably skeptical, as in who’s to say what color is what, but take a deep breath. Pantone has solved many communication errors over the years, and is trusted across the art and graphics community. They are completely legit, and have been around since the 1960’s, they even have their own institute.

Lucite Green is described by Pantone here:

“Generally not thought of as a fashion color, though it does come back from time to time, PANTONE 14-5714 Lucite Green is a soothing green shade whose time has really come again. Fresh and clarifying, cool and refreshing, Lucite Green has a minty glow. Light in weight and also in tone, Lucite Green seems almost transparent.”

This cool green color is perfect for the inbetween of Winter, and Spring that we’re all currently in. It’s not too commonly seen in the fashion world, but in the arts and decor world this color is everywhere!

Color Curation: Rendezvous with Ravenous Reds

Red! Some will describe this as the color of romance, others of rage! But, today we’re going to delve into some of our best Reds in our collection.

Red has different meanings if you look at it from a global view point. Red in many Asian countries means good luck, as well as happiness. While it is said that Red in many Middle Eastern countries means danger or evil. The way we are socialized in our cultures, will often determine the way we perceive colors and their connotations. The use of the color Red dates back to prehistoric times, and was one of the first colors used in art and decoration. It’s no wonder it’s a favorite by many, it’s been around since the beginning of time!

Featured below are a few of our favorite images that speak for themselves.

This color has been around for so long we’ve even integrated the color into colloquialisms such as “seeing red”. I’m sure you’ve heard the expression before such as, “That jerk was so rude to me, I completely lost it, I was seeing red!” which is usually a bad thing. Or even expressions such as, “I caught the thief red handed!” As I’m sure you know, red is not only a color but also a part of our language. It’s integrated into our society, and will even determine actions such as the quote below suggests about traffic lights.

A Quote about the color red:

“On a traffic light green means go and yellow means yield, but on a banana it’s just the opposite. Green means hold on, yellow means go ahead, and red means where the hell did you get that banana at…”

Mitch Hedberg (American Comedian, 1968-2005)
