Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!
According to Pantone one of the top colors for Fall 2017 is Navy Peony.
PANTONE 19-4029 Navy Peony
A mainstay for the season for both palettes, Navy Peony is a dependable and an anchoring shade. Solid and stable, the hue takes some of the load off of black as a go-to neutral.

Members of the Etsy Christmas In July Team have been inspired by the color Navy Peony! They have created items in their shops reflecting this inspiration! Here are a few!
Cerena Levene Studio Make Believe from CerenaLevene says:
These luxurious cloth napkins were inspired by my love of natural things around me. I live where huge Loblolly pine cones fall seasonally and make great fire starters for the fireplace, terrific decorations in baskets and fun projects for children during the winter season.
Navy Peony and a rich chocolate brown partners well with the the look of glistening snow- whether it is your white dinner set, milk glass, crystal goblets- or even tin!
Diana from joliefemmebydiana says:
Navy Peony is a classic color perfect when combined with white. This bag is just right for any occasion from a dinner date to a casual wedding! Navy peony is great for all seasons and goes with so many colors as an alternative to black.
Cristal Hughes from DesignsbyCristal says:
Navy blue is a perfect back drop to display the pink ribbons for Breast Cancer. In this print it’s no wonder they paired navy peony with the pink ribbons because a Breast Cancer survivor or fighter is strong (solid), faithful (dependable), and secure (stable) in this battle.
I have both friends and family whom have battled this illness and I’ve seen how each one was solid, stable, and dependable for their families even though they were in a fight to live!
Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:
Navy Peony: A dependable and anchoring shade. That’s a great way to describe what a home means to me. Our little family has seen our fair share of planes, trains, suitcases and hotel rooms, but as long as we are together, we can make any place a home. We offer printed and printable ‘HOME’ art, and SLS is happy to customize the map to show where you’ve made your home.

Navy peony color
Reminder of the ted, white and blue!
Hurray for the red, white and blue!
Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital says:
I had started work on a new paper pack – I wanted to do something in navy or denim blue and make it look a bit old and worn – so, navy peony seems a perfect color for this set. I love how it contrasts with the beige to give it a classic old denim look.
Christine from cwagenblass9 says:
When choosing a color for my paper cut card the navy color was my first choice as it makes the design really stand out against the white parchment paper. It can be used for any occasion and any season.
Cindy Humphrey from Cynhumphrey says:
Designing with the color blue is like second nature to me. I love the color. This elegant lapel pin is not only beautiful but it can also add color and conversation to any dull outfit. It’s versatile enough to be added to a hat, purse, or tote bag too!
Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns says:
Navy Peony is a super cool colour for summer! And this sparkly ring is ideal for summer night parties! Made from upcycled buttons the ring makes a great fashion statement!
Linda B. from lindab142 says:
Navy Peony blue is one of the colors in the Israeli flag and I use it in my Jewish jewelry designs. This charm bracelet can be worn year round since it features Jewish symbols and Jewish charms representing different holidays.
Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:
Blue goes perfectly with jeans, which are my favorite wardrobe choice! Gypsy style chandelier earrings in tones of blue. Swarovski crystals , iridescent blue seed beads, and tiny gold beads.
Lisajoy Sachs from saxdsign says:
One of the most coveted colors in the universe is navy. It is fitting that Navy Peony is a featured Pantone color for the Etsy Christmas July Team. Since we are a solid and stable team of creative souls. I am featuring one of my beautiful natural blue sapphire cabochons. This stone is a slice cut from a larger blue sapphire crystal.
Elisabeth Perez from LizPOriginals says:
I love navy peony blue tones. This agate pendant caught my eye when shopping for stones. The rich deep blue is so wonderful and it almost begged to be a suncatcher!
