Placid Blue and Yellow Pear

Color Craze: Placid Blue and Yellow Pear

Cheery, springy, pastels-a-poppin'!

Sunshine printPlacid Blue and Yellow Pear together make me smile. The pleasant print you see above in these happy colors makes me almost love the idea of wallpaper. (gasp!) But alas, the thought has now been pushed from my decorative consciousness. It says a lot about this color duo if its prettiness invited me to have a brief visit to the mystical land of wall coverings. No offense to those who can appreciate the wonders of latex, vinyl and adhesive. I personally have more of an aesthetic connection to paint, brushes and rollers. Nevertheless, these hues are a perfectly refreshing pairing for any room in your home, no matter how the colors are applied.

Pantone Color of the Year 2019 - Living Coral

vibrant. energetic. alive. Pantone's Color of the Year for 2019 is a reminder that despite the refreshing chill of winter hues, spring and summer colors reign vibrantly supreme.

Living Coral

traditionally a color with popularity in beauty and fashion, Living Coral is versatile. use it to add eye-catching elements to your home. here are a few products our CEO/Creative Director, Juliet loves for incorporating the color into a neutral palette in your kitchen or on your dining table:

While we are enamored with Living Coral, we would be remiss if we didn't acknowledge that the name of the color reminds us that coral reefs around the world are suffering. Why care about reefs? Here's what we found on coral.org

Coral reefs are an important food source for the people who live near reefs, and, as nurseries, are vital to the world’s fisheries. Many of the compounds now being used in human medicines, including some that treat cancer, are found on coral reefs, with probably many more yet to be discovered. Coral reefs help humans in many other ways too: generating tourist dollars for communities, and—especially important in our changing climate—acting as natural barriers against storm events like hurricanes, typhoons, and even tsunamis.

These are compelling reasons and why we are donating 50% of the proceeds from the sale of the coral colored enamel bangle bracelets on eBay to the Coral Reef Alliance
