With the weather warming up and sundresses and seersucker making their way out of your closet, it’s safe to say that springtime has actually arrived. This is a much awaited time of the year, both with crawfish boils and warmer weather, but also with the first busy season of the bridal world. Spring colors, flowers and fashion have made this the optimal time for couples looking for light and airy on their wedding day. One of Pantone's, official authority on all things color, dual colors of the year is Rose Quartz. This calm, gentle hue brings visions of soft sunsets and budding flora. It would seem only natural to pair Rose Quartz with its “color of the year” partner Serenity, but every light and airy shade needs its bold neutral. Lilac Gray gives Rose Quartz a supporting touch like that of the newlywed couple. The hint of lilac undertone gives the color just the right amount of edge to make this the perfect spring color combination.
