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!

Devote an entire day to just letting your creativity blossom. We’re sure this is something that’s been on your mind since summer started to sizzle out. So, instead of just dwelling on what you’d like to achieve in your mind, give yourself the time to get it out.

Choose a Theme/Color Set:

It’s important to remember what color scheme you’re going with this season. You can keep it in the Pumpkin Spice area, or you can travel to more of the majestic Maple! This is all your choice! Remember to keep in mind that colors evoke emotions, they can bring excitement into the air like with red and other vibrant colors. Or your color palette can create a calm soothing feeling, such as using neutrals and browns. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s something that you’re comfortable with. Yes, it’s only for a season, but it should be something that makes you feel best. There are all sorts of color schemes you can work with.

  Use References-But Let YOUR Creative style be the biggest influence:

Sometimes it’s hard to come up with the right idea. As soon as you feel like you’ve gotten it right, something makes you change your mind and you scrap the idea completely. It’s no problem, these things happen to the best of us! Take a minute to breathe, you’re just creating a stylish space. There’s no pressure, this is all fun! If you’ve got some inspiring magazines laying around take a look through them. Get inspired by anything! If you’ve got a favorite Fall outfit or scarf, use that to inspire you! Everything can be an inspiration, so try not to stress out if something isn’t quite feeling like you wanted it to in the beginning.
