This week we are calling on African Violet to be Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2013. This beautiful color is happy, soothing, and healing, which is why we typically think of it as lavender! It is perfect for a late winter or early spring wedding, and is sweet and feminine but not overly sugary like soft pinks.
Interested in the other Pantone colors of the year for 2013? Check them all out here.
