Pantone® recently released their Spring 2014 Color Report, revealing soft pastels paired with vivid brights for a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad, and strong, confident women, designers are using color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom.
“This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional and artistic equilibrium,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “…the inherent versatility of the individual colors allows for experimentation with new looks and color combinations.”

Cayenne, a high-pitched reddish orange, adds a dash of spicy heat to neutrals. Pink tourmaline and many spinels exude “Cayenne” hues.
Radiant Orchid is a perfect companion to pastels and pairs well mixed with other bold colors. Pink sapphire comes in a variety of hues, including “Radiant Orchid” as seen in this cushion cut pink sapphire.
Placid Blue, induces a sense of calmness and tranquility as seen in this radiant cut fancy sapphire. With its clean and clear-blue, cornflower blue sapphire will make its wearer feel the breeze and brilliant shine of calm seas.
Dazzling Blue, a scintillating, polar opposite to Placid Blue, this strong color can be found in sapphires and tanzanite and pairs well across the pallet.
Freesia, an intense yellow, brings powerful energy to the spectrum. Yellow sapphires are the perfect gemstone to elude this sunny hue.
Hemlock, a summery, ornamental green, provides a touch that’s different from the Emerald green of last year. Mint green tourmaline is the perfect hue to carry summer through every season!
Celosia Orange, an optimistic, spontaneous hue can inspire you every day with imperial topaz or mandarin garnet.
