Pantone Tangerine Tango Summer Trends Chalkboard China Mandarin

It’s only half-way through spring, but we can’t wait for summer! Backyard BBQs, days lounging by the pool, and sipping cold margaritas – since the Chalkboard China team can’t wait to sit back and enjoy all of those things, we wanted to gather what’s going to be hot (both figuratively and literally) this summer! We see bright colors and nifty neons in our summer’s future, but check out more sizzling trends below:

Wedding Trends

Since Pantone’s announcement of Tangerine Tango as the 2012 Color of the Year, The Perfect Palette has come out with some really original bright wedding color themes. The mixture of green, aqua, yellow, tangerine, and gray is truly “Fun + Fabulous” for wedding accent colors. This summer wedding season, let Chalkboard China help you be a step ahead of the bride and give her a set of our Seaside Plates to match her design. For a personal touch, write a message to both the bride and the groom to really make your gift stand out from the rest. Plus, you’ll totally be the trendiest gift giver with what’s hot in the wedding industry this summer – vibrant colors!

Fashion Trends

While Chalkboard China is a home product, our entire team loves to dressed to a T and a step ahead in the fashion world. This summer, you’ve heard of the LBD (little black dress), but consider the cooler option: the LWD (little white dress). You can stay cool while looking hot in these great options featured on Stylecaster. The best part is you can add pops of color with fab neon accessories, another trend we’ll see this summer. Don’t forget – the chunkier and brighter the jewelry, the better! Wear your LWD to the next dinner party you host and complete the outfit further with not only fun, bright jewelry, but a POP of color by sipping your fave cocktail from one of our stemware COLORS pieces.

Home Trends

Bright colors dominate the summer trends for home decor as well. We’re head over heels for this living room featured on House Beautiful with its fab use of purple, green, and aqua. These lively colors really make a statement in the room while still making the room feel cozy and livable. You could even include some Chalkboard China into the mix and dress up a few side tables with one of our Fern Vases filled to the brim with lovely white daisies.

We’d love to hear what you think your go-to bright will be this summer! Comment below or tell us on our Facebook page. We’ll also be pinning away all of the summer trends to expect to be sure to connect with us on Pinterest as well.
