pantone color of the year: linen

pantone linen wedding Next up in our Pantone Color of the Year for 2013 prediction series is linen. Linen is easy on the eyes, warm, effortless, classic, and a perfect color to go with for any season of wedding. Compliment linen tones with nudes, whites, and ivories. For some texture, linen lends itself well to burlap and lace so with this lovely hue your wedding style can also range from classic understated elegance to a rustic vintage vibe.

I’m obviously quite a fan of this color – if you love it too check out safari chic, queen anne’s lace, and naturally neutral for some more ideas and don’t forget to pop over to 3D Memoirs today for another Pantone palette: Lemon Zest.
