Top 5 2015 Wedding Colors

The bold & bright will forever be classic, uplifting, and convey all the happiness you’re feeling at your wedding. However, we are so excited on the recent release of Pantone’s 2015 Color Trend Report. “En Plein Aire”, which in French translates to “in the open air”, is a combination of earthy neutrals, and airy, calming hues, to envelope everything from décor, to floral, to bridesmaids dresses with an effortlessly elegant look and feel. The collection has a plethora of colors to be inspired by, but these are our top 5 favorites for 2015 wedding colors.

tang

 Tangerine is the perfect pop of color to be incorporated in floral.  It will subtly and pleasantly, warm up your wedding. We would love to see it used in décor or (for the more daring bride), fabrics!

tita

Shades of gray will forever be sophisticated and elegant. It is such a versatile color that can be used as a canvas and accentuated by contrasting colors; or used on it’s own to create a modern yet comfortable look.

mars

Marsala was named Pantone’s color of the year for 2015, and there is no question as to why. This color dominates in every form, from décor, to floral, to wearable fashion. Men and women both look stunning in this color as it really compliments any skin tone, (but I wasn’t passing on a photo of Ryan…you’re welcome).

ta

 We ADORE Toasted Almond, (and the backless beauty being worn by our very own Gold Leaf Girl, Chelsea)! This color is such a beautiful neutral and can be paired and complimented by almost any hue. We love it with Dusk Blue!

blu

 To close out our top 5, we have the effortless perfection of Classic Blue. It photographs beautifully, wears confidently, and will never go out of style.

Take a look at all of Pantone’s newest collection. We are positive you will fall in love, (again), and may even make a few tweaks for the big day! Just do us a favor, and don’t tell your planner we told you!

Spring Cleaning? Maybe Spring Shopping

 

Although we didn't have the winter of our dreams here in Aspen, we had some pretty incredible powder days and we are thankful.  With that being said, we are psyched for spring!!  It is just around the corner and although that means a mud pit of a town for the next 2 months, it also means bright blue skies only graying to bring our May flowers.  Our homes will get a good spring cleaning and our fleece bed sheets washed and packed away.  The tourism will quiet down and the locals will pipe up, leading to outdoor fun and preparation for the sweet summer!  We have put together a few items to revamp your home and life for the fresh new season!  (We pre-apologize to any men in your life, these things are girly...but it is physically impossible to turn down rain boots with a bow on them).

#1-The Perfect Rain boots-  Well we know it's going to rain! Technically these are a necessity...this-exact-pair.  Classy while keeping it young.  In love.

#2-James Smith Umbrella- Convenient and fashionable in one try.  Bring on the weather!

#3-Hello/Goodbye Doormat-  I need something to wipe my perfect wet boots on!  And how polite?

#4 & #5- Square & Lumbar Pillow-  We are loving this new print by Pottery Barn this spring.  It is happy, fresh, and just the right amount of whimsical (psst-it also comes as a bed set)!

#6-Wooden Chimes-  The sound of wind chimes always reminds us of open windows and doors.  Welcome the new breeze with a little song!

#7-Face Vase- We need them all.  The unique shape, style, and pastel colors have us trimming all the plants in all the neighbors' garden's.

#8-eRide Rock Crawler's- We figured opening and ending a blog segment with shoes is never a bad idea.  THESE shoes however, are amazing; perfect for the wet and slippery terrain everyone's going to be experiencing on the first hikes of the season.  These shoes have amazing traction and amazing support for up and downhill.  No more smashed toes!

We hope everyone had a joyful, safe winter and we send our cheers' for a gorgeous and adventuresome spring season!
