the year of the salmon…

pantone are calling it emerald, dulux has nominated indigo: i’m no expert, but right about now pale pink {be it salmon, blush or peony} is looking like the colour of 2013…

& i’m seeing it everywhere…

in big hits…

big hits

thin strips…

thin strips

& with metallic twists {my favourite}…

metallic hits

so pretty & so perfect for spring, summer & beyond…

check back tomorrow to see how i’m planning to bring some more of this happy hue into my life…

    • i think i could take a wall of it, especially in that lovely tile wallpaper, but i do imagine it could get a little sickly en masse! i keep finding bits of it in my home & my wardrobe though, so i must have a thing for it! 🙂

    • hiya jamie, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by & comment! i think these are timeless colours really, whatever the variation!

    • that a girl! he won’t even notice what colour towel he’s drying himself with given a week! i promise!!! 😉 i saw some beautiful cushions in this colour in oz, but sadly they were all sold out… guess everybody’s catching on to our little secret!

  1. Oh, I much like this shade than emerald. Though Pantone is seemingly so far off-base with their color predictions (it was Honeysuckle a few years ago! What?!). My color of the year would be black, every year 🙂 But that’s no fun. I can deal with pale colors like this, though. Salmon I don’t mind. xo

    • it’s a pretty inoffensive shade, right!?! i love it… emerald i love too, but would probably have to be in the mood for it in big hits… this i could definitely live with longer!

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
