Tender Shoots of Green, Pantone Green

Recently a number of Wesco Fabric's client/designers, including myself, were asked to share what we felt would be a "go to" 2013 color and featured on GentryConnects Blog.  

I am not shy when it comes to color and can talk about this subject 
all day long.

This is what I have to I say on the subject...

Forecasters have seen the prediction of colors for 2013 in their crystal ball.  One in particular, Pantone a world renowned authority on color, gives us their report of what to expect.

I'd have to agree on one of their future picks, Tender Shoots 14-0446.  After seeing the runway fashions in NYC of Fashion Week Spring 2013, this lighter shade of a yellowy green walked the walk. 

Diane Von Furstenberg brings to life shades of flowing chartreuse for the world to see and wear.  With the obvious focus on Fashion+Decor within the apparel and home furnishing markets, the two certainly influence each other.

Bringing the two industries together in a mood board, these Tender Shoots of greens convey a  feeling of working together in harmony.  If you're in a green mood, try these Wesco Fabrics for something fresh; (top to bottom) 
Eastwood-Mineral, Fun and Frolic-Spring Green, 

I suspect we will be seeing green come Spring.  
What's your crystal ball say?

Tomorrow I will be at the Wesco Fabrics showroom enjoying the Motorized Haute Couture Runday and Line Showing.  This is an exciting roll out of brand new fabrics and creative window treatments inspired by runway fashions.  I will be sharing photos later in the week.

  2. I think this is such a beautiful color! I love all of the products you picked-especially that little green chest! I am predicting a medium shade of blue to be color of the year but you might be changing my mind towards this pretty green!

    1. This is a great color of green, I agree Kelly. I think we're both close with our predictions, I expect to see both blues and greens. I hope Pantone picks blue, though. I would love to see more blues inland, it's much more favored on the coast. I keep trying to push the blues in Colorado. ;D

      Thanks for your prediction!

  3. I LOVE THIS! Pantone colors are all so fabulous and Tender Shoots is a prime example! We love it so much that we made it our color of the week and put together a fabulous outfit on our blog to show how to dress wearing Pantone's Tender Shoots using a triadic color palette. You can take a look at it here and tell us what you think! xoxo, WearToStandOut
