Spring 2016 – Pantone Color Report: Lilac Gray

While scouring Pinterest for wedding inspiration pictures for this blog, I quickly fell in love with this color. Lilac Gray is the seventh color on Pantone’s Spring 2016 color report, and though it may not appear to be the most exciting, or the most expected for spring, this soft hue is by far the most elegant. Although Pantone recommends pairing this color with Fiesta, Green Flash, and Iced Coffee, I prefer a more rustic color palette. For a wedding that is sure to thrill, I’d suggest combining this soft grayed-purple with white, metallic silver, dried herb, and acai.

“As in most any season, the need for neutrals arises. Essentially a basic, the subtlety of the lilac undertone in Lilac Gray, adds a distinctive edge to this classic gray shade.”  – Pantone Spring 2016 Color Report
