What Colours Can we Expect for Summer 2014?

Spring/Summer 2014 Palette
Preciosa Pantone

Preciosa are bursting into next Summer with a combination of bright and intense colours created from nature. These colours highlight the season beautifully, symbolising life and energy.
The colours are separated into four different palettes, demonstrating the moods and visuals of the Summer season.
The Trip Time palette features Citrine from Preciosa or Buttercup from Pantone, a cheerful yellow “bursting forth like a field of buttercups on a warm, sunny day.” The Crystal Bermuda Blue and Blue Aster are colours symbolic of travel plans as “the blue energy of this wildflower underlines the

optimistic outlook of this colour palette”. Amethyst Preciosa and Magenta Purple Pantone is a vibrant shade, “intense, yet playful” symbolising new adventures.
To feel fresh and alive, why not go for the Green Turmaline Preciosa, Bright Green Pantone? “Leave your worries behind and set out on your journey.”

The Aquamarine and Placid Blue reflect the warm, sun filled skies that fill the long days of Summer, Violet and Orchid Bouquet for the full Summer beauty and the heady lavender.
