Spring 2014 Fashion Color Report


It’s exciting to see the pastel and neutrals combine with vivid colors. The result is a palette that’s fresh and full of life. Celosia Orange, Placid Blue, and Sand —  are all colors we used to paint our new Ocreative office. It’s exciting to see those colors appear on our walls as well as the Pantone Spring Color 2014 report. Living within walls that are those colors, we can completely understand why these hues made the top of the list. The contrast of the exciting, vivid, and bold Celosia Orange and the calming, pastel Placid Blue create an au courant look.
