Product Crush: Pantone

Product crush: Pantone by Melissa Louise

I am completely obsessed with Pantone. I love that each colour can stand on its own, is named and when paired can create magic. Their products are iconic and the PANTONE® name is known worldwide as the standard language for colour communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer.

Pantone produces a wide range of products but a few of my favourites can be purchased locally with a lovely online store called Elephantshoe.

“Established in 2010 by us (Sam & James), Elephantshoe is a custom boutique Paperie, Branding and Styling Design Studio. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, we don’t believe that a little latitude and longitude should get in the way of working with clients near and far, so drop us a mail and we’ll get straight back to you (minus that time difference thing).” – Elephantshoe

Here are a few of my Pantone favourites purchasable on their store- see them here.

Etsy Round up: Emerald

Today is Friday! and I’m excited to present to you my second Etsy round up, the first round up on Ceramics & Porcelain Products can be seen here.

I’m so in love with this colour right now, only to find out its been named Pantone’s colour of the year for 2013.

I’ve decided to put together an emerald round up showcasing beautiful products that embrace this rich and vibrant colour, all items available on Etsy .
