Lush Meadow Color Inspiration

Meet lush meadow, a rich, vibrant, and sophisticated shade of green selected by Pantone as a top color pick for Fall 2016. According to Pantone, the lush meadow color “brings to mind fresh botanicals and foliage.” To me, it’s just a more in-your-face version of emerald. I like it, but my first instinct is to use it sparingly. My second instinct is to tone it down with some more subtle hues, like a very-close-to-grey shade of sage green, using gold as an accent. Also, is anyone else getting a modern art deco vibe from this palette? LOVE.

Lush Meadow Color Palette

Meet the newest addition to our color inspiration page, the lush meadow color palette! You’ll see this color palette had the addition of one more neutral, the light grey shade, that can be used if needed. If you’re using these in a web project, I’d recommend using lots of white space to make sure everything feels balanced and doesn’t get too overwhelming.
