Pantone 2013 | Cool Tones : Monaco Blue, African Violet, Dusk Blue
Are you ready for more Spring color? I featured Pantone's color picks for 2013 starting with colors from the Green family a couple weeks ago. This week we dive into those color tones of blue and purple.
Monaco Blue is very similar to a Royal Blue with a splash of Navy. It's a bit more fashion friendly than Tangerine Tango and meshes very well with Dusk Blue, Grayed Jade and Emerald.
Monaco Blue :
hand printed linen table runner | Giardino
infinity scarf | Seven White Rabbits
felt flower pillow cover | Jillian Rene Decor
Purple has never been my favorite color, but African Violet, Pantone's Purple choice for 2013 is a great accent color. I especially like it paired with Grayed Jade. I would have assumed it would have been a bit darker since it has violet in the name, but to me it leans toward lavender. Either way, I think it works well with most colors in the 2013 palette.
African Violet :
long sleeve top | Assaf Pelleg
beaded necklace | A Quiet Curiosity
water color painting | Louise Art Studio
hand carved stamp | Creatiate
I will wrap up the cool tones with Dusk Blue. A very soft blue with lots of gray. I think this color also works very well with Monaco Blue. I really see this as a perfect wedding color in 2013, don't you?
Dusk Blue :
butterfly clutch | Mama Bleu Designs
wrap top | Lirola
hand printed linen tea towel | Homesteading Roasters
