Spring Flowers and Pantone Color Guide

April 12, 2016

    Caroline Gilbert recently helped create a beautiful guide about spring flowers for FTD.  It matches 42 spring flowers to the 10 spring Pantone colors, so you can find the flowers that are right for your own home and garden.

   If you are not familiar with Pantone, it is a system for locating, matching, and referring to specific colors.  It is ‘the global authority’ on color.  It was originally designed for graphic arts but is now used by designers of floral, fashion, and home industries.

   Spring is such an exciting time! The weather gets warmer and colorful flowers are all around. One of the best things about spring is all of the different flowers that are in season. To help inspire you to plant or decorate with something new this spring, FTD created a spring flower and Pantone color guide. It takes the ten colors from Pantone’s spring 2016 color palette and matches them to popular spring flowers.

   This color palette is a great mix of soft and vivid colors. If you’re a fan of light pink Rose Quartz, grow peonies, cherry blossoms, or dogwoods. If you prefer vibrant colors like the bright yellow Buttercup, try daffodils, freesias, of pansies. For more inspiration, check out the mood boards below.
