Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!
PANTONE 14-1315 Hazelnut
Rounding out the spring 2017 colors is Hazelnut, a key neutral for spring. This shade brings to mind a natural earthiness. Unpretentious and with an inherent warmth, Hazelnut is a transitional color that effortlessly connects the seasons.

Hazelnut. I’ve been having a hard time labeling this color, now I know!
Did you know the Hazelnut is Oregon’s state nut? I come from Oregon, a prime hazelnut grower, and grew up calling them filberts. The word evokes fond family memories and relaxing carefree times on my uncle’s filbert farm. I think this color brings about a warm relaxing carefree feeling as well.
Hazelnut is a great color. It’s one of those colors that can be used in a variety of ways. My fawn deer plaque is done on bass wood, which is a hazelnut color.
I chose to do the fawn deer on that piece of bass wood because I saw both the fawn deer and bass wood as beautiful and uncomplicated. I like to let the wood and design speak for themselves!
The color of hazelnut is the one of the colors of earth and nature, so it is very pleasant to decorate the interior. I used natural wood and shades of brown to make this wall clock for a dog lover. I also used natural, dry oak leaves.
This lamp of a teapot represents a nice cup of tea With hazlenut creamer. Amaretto added to the tea as well. A nice romantic tea party with romantic lighting sets the mood!
This hazelnut neutral color decorated clipboard is perfect for a teacher, coach, or anyone else who uses a clipboard frequently and loves to show off some elegance but yet be practical!
This bookmark I normally think of the season of fall with. But, rethinking it after reading the article I see that is marks transition; from the dark dreariness of winter, to the rebirth in spring.
It is my pleasure to introduce you to a really beautiful and rare gemstone the Coyamito Agate, which is only found in one place in the world in Mexico. Coyamito agates are VERY RARE because of a few reasons – firstly they are very hard to find, and secondly they are really hard to cut because of the rare earth inclusions or Pseudomorphs found in the geodes that they are cut from. It comes in some really amazing colors, this one is a lovely hazelnut and earth tones.
