Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!

According to Pantone one of the top colors for Spring 2018 is Cherry Tomato.

PANTONE 17-1563

Impulsive Cherry Tomato is a tempestuous orangey red that exudes heat and energy. Demanding attention, this courageous, never to be ignored, shade is viscerally alive.

Members of the Etsy Christmas In July Team have been inspired by the color Cherry Tomato! They have created items in their shops reflecting this inspiration! Here are a few!

Przemila K from CanisArtStudio says:

The red color emanates energy and is a symbol of life in many cultures. It is associated with an appetizing tomato and also with the blood that revives our bodies. In the winter, when it’s gray and dark, we need colors and we enjoy them more than ever. Perhaps this is why the Chinese recognize this color as lucky and they chose it as the symbol of the New Year.

I made home decorations for the New Year 2018 with a dog symbol and I used a red background to accent the meaning of this symbol. Both the dog and the color of the red tomato carry the message of joy.

Cherry Red, just love the Pantone name for this lucky and energizing red! A perfect color for our dynamic popcorn bar sign.

Judy Merashoff from JAMsCraftCloset says:

This cherry tomato red handmade glass basket was purchased at an estate sale. It wasn’t that I just saw it and picked it up to purchase. Another lady saw it first and picked it up. I followed her around for a good 30 minutes hoping she would change her mind…and she did. Once she put it down, I immediately picked it up. I didn’t give her a chance to change her mind again.

I displayed this basket in my kitchen for a while holding my wooden spoons. At Christmas time I would move it to the living room coffee table and add some holiday picks. I even had it in the bathroom holding toothbrushes. Yes, this is a very unique and versatile basket for use in any room to add a little spice to the decor.

I may have just that in my shop … love bright orange reds that remind me of fire!

Marie-Antoinknit from 9ElizabethStreet says:

I use a lot of red in my items because I think it’s a dynamic color that adds the “pop” accessories should bring to a person’s look. These cloche hats were inspired by the 20’s style, but simplified for today’s fast-fashion trends and busy lives. No need to find a dry cleaner or hat block for this one, and you’ll still look great!

I am a vintage lover, and this is one of my cherished treasures. This classic Chanel inspired vintage bag will naturally attracts attention whether you carry it day or night!
