2016 and Everything’s Coming Up Rosy…and Blue?

2.4.2016

If the style experts are correct, the New Year is all about mindfulness and well-being. Pantone, the international authority on color trends, announced Rose Quartz and Serenity as its 2016 Color of the Year, the first time two colors have earned this honor. 

Rose Quartz is a light pink and Serenity is a periwinkle blue. Unlike the bright colors of the past few years, which displayed our post-recession optimism and energetic lifestyle, this year’s softer palette represents a balance between warm and cool, reflecting wellness and a soothing sense of peace.

What does all this mean to you? Pantone’s Color of the Year is a reflection of what is taking place in our culture and expresses the current mood and attitude. It filters down into all aspects of daily life: fashion, beauty products, interior design and, of course, event schemes and design. You’ll see greater use of Rose Quartz and Serenity color combinations in linens, floral, and décor, which could really pop with a neutral candlelight glow to add, dimension to the room. And while many trendsetting brides have been utilizing overall pink lighting for its flattering ambiance, Rose Quartz up lighting is a more literal use of the color and will add dramatic flair to any room.

So whether it’s a sea of blue bridesmaids’ dresses paired with delicate pink flowers or a ballroom awash in shades of soft pink light or cool blue tones for a more modern effect, this color palette is a fresh departure from the bold statement colors of years past, but guaranteed to make a stunning impact at your event.

The BEYOND Hard Hat Event – Party Pics

1.6.2016

BEYOND was thrilled to have the opportunity to open our space to some of our vendor partners and planners.  Being under construction presented its own set of challenges but with the help of Stageworks, Posh Couture Rentals, Top Tier Staffing, FunkyTown Donuts and of course Lombardi’s Catering we were about to pull of our construction chic event.  Thank you to all those that were able to attend.
