Riverside Blue Inspiration
Riverside is a cool blue hue selected by Pantone as a top color pick for fall 2016. According to Pantone, this color “displays a subtle vibrancy and sophistication” and “borders on exciting, yet maintains a sense of constancy.” Admittedly, I didn’t like this color very much when I first saw it, but it’s growing on me. With a couple of good complimentary colors, I think Riverside is a solid choice!
Because of that “subtle vibrancy,” there are a lot of different possibilities for accent colors here. I toyed with the idea of pairing it with a hot pink or the darker rose color found in the florals in the mood board above. In the end, I thought a nice teal green color was the way to go!
