Spring/Summer 2016 Pantone Colors

Have you seen the Pantone colors for this season? I would describe the palette as cheery and fresh!
Check them out below!

"Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves," says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. (Source)

It reminds me of a polo shirts, fruit salad, fresh cut grass, and swimming pools. What do you think?

A Little Creative Inspiration

When I see an Instagram post that I love, I usually save it to my Iphone. This week I needed a little creative inspiration, so I decided to go through my phone's photo album. These were some of my favorite pics based on color, texture, and layout. Hopefully they'll give you a little inspiration as well. Click each photo to see the Instagram account and more info on the picture.
