2016 Color Trend: Snorkel Blue

The classic navy takes on a whole new look in a happier and livelier Snorkel Blue 19-4049. This soon to be classic, slightly maritime inspired blue, takes on hues of indigo and cobalt.

Paired with multiple shades of blues and soft pink, it would make for a fabulous palette for a spring or early summer wedding.

If you’re going for something a little more unique and unexpected, Snorkel Blue lends itself to a slightly masculine style. Think rich brown leathers, dark stained woods, a rum bar, oysters, and brassy gold accents. And yes, you can still add in those romantic details. Below is a little real life inspiration from a style shoot to help you visualize.

“A maritime-inspired blue, Pantone 19-4049 Snorkel Blue plays in the navy family, but with a happier, more energetic context. The name alone implies a relaxing vacation and encourages escape. It is striking yet still, with lots of activity bursting from its undertones.” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute
