Cindy deRosier: Trendsetter

Pantone has released the Color Report for Spring 2012.

The Color of the Year for 2012 is Tangerine Tango, a gorgeous warm orange with a hint of red. Beautiful! I really like Cabaret too- a beautiful hot pink. As I was reading through the report, I came to this sentence: 

"For an ultra-bold vibrant look this spring, try mixing Bellflower with Tangerine Tango and Cabaret."

Now where have I seen that color combination before? Oh yeah... my wedding!

Steve and I got married in May 2004. Apparently I was eight years ahead of my time.  

Here's a close-up of my bouquet. I thought my wedding colors were tangerine, hot pink, and purple, but it turns out they were Tangerine Tango, Cabaret and Bellflower! If you look closely, you'll see tiny hints of Margarita in there too. 

I still love this color combination as much as the day I chose it. I feel vindicated, as I didn't get a lot of positive feedback about these colors as I was planning the wedding. I knew it would look spectacular (and my florist agreed), but others weren't so sure. Fortunately, I did end up with lots of compliments on the colors once everyone saw how they worked together.
