Peach Echo And Snorkle Blue – Pantone Fashion Colors For Spring 2016

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Color Inspiration is the theme of Christmas In July’s #EtsyCraftParty 2016!

Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!

According to Pantone two of the top colors for Spring 2016 are Peach Echo and Snorkle Blue.

The fashion and design communities, and consequently, consumers, have been in love with orange for several seasons. Coming to the fore this Spring is PANTONE 16-1548, Peach Echo, a shade that emanates friendlier qualities, evoking warmth and accessibility. It is an all-encompassing, tempered companion in the playful orange family.
Leatrice Eiseman
Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute™

A maritime -inspired blue, PANTONE 19-4049 Snorkel Blue plays in the navy family, but with a happier, more energetic context. The name alone implies a relaxing vacation and encourages escape. It is striking yet still, with lots of activity bursting from its undertones.

Members of the Etsy ChristmasInJuly Team have been inspired by the colors Peach Echo and Snorkle Blue! They have created items in their shops reflecting this inspiration! Here are a few!

Mary Avelis from LilFoxDesigns says:

Kitchen accent peach pot holders, are created with the home cook in mind. casual or serious cooks will love these high quality pot holders. Our juicy peach hot pads are certain to please all year around.

Each hot pad fits your hand and allows you to hold your item safely. Measures approximately 7 1/2 inches square. Each peach and green potholder is top stitched and quilted for durability. We used a heat resistant material, with 100% cotton batting. As well as high quality cotton fabric for durability.

As if the features for our peach pot holders weren’t enough; I am proud to say they are made in a smoke-free and pet-free studio; and is extremely easy to care for!

All you need to do to keep your hot pads clean, wash cold, tumble dry low.

Dana Hamant from LilybeanzBowtique says:

My best friend recently had boy/girl twins. I focus on items for girls, but really wanted to make something for her son, too. I decided on making a fabric mobile for their nursery that incorporated colors to go along with the jungle theme she picked. After completing her mobile, I wanted to make more to add to my shop. They are such a fun way to add color and texture to a room, and can transition to a great decor piece as the child grows. When looking for fabrics to create a new piece for my shop, I found these that had peach, mint, and grey and absolutely fell in love.

Peach always reminds me of summer, I got inspired in the wintertime, missing beach times when i came across this pretty stone.

Valerie Brown from FirepanJewellery says:

I grew up on the Canadian West Coast, and blue water surrounded the island! Just thinking about the ocean makes me happy! These pendants were inspired by the word ‘content’. To me being content is being by the water’s edge – the greenery behind you and your toes in the blue water!

Tanya Hardman from TheWoollyTangle says:

The variety of blues in sodalite reminds me of all the colours of the sea – perfect for sunny summer days.

Jessica and Bryan King from FeathandKee says:

I love all shades of blue. This pair of earrings were made from reclaimed wood. They are simple squares, and I wanted a restful color for them.

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns says:

I love the colour blue – summer skies, Mediterranean seas – I guess that is why the Pantone Color Institute link the colour to a relaxing vacation and escape!

I also link relaxing and vacationing with good food, and good food deserves to be served in unique handmade bowls!

Annie from DesignedbyAnneliese says:

The colour blue is one of my favourites. My husband and I have a lot of blue in the house which we find relaxing!

I made this felt star blue for that reason. I made it with Christmas in mind, to be used as a Christmas tree decoration. Saying that, it could look nice hanging from a hook or door any time of the year!
