MOOD BOARD: MUTED RAINBOW

Ampersand Design Studio

MUTEDRAINBOW_MOODBOARD.jpg

you guys, we’ve been missing our blogging days and the truth is, we constantly have our eye out for new and unique color combinations or emerging patterns! OR—both, fresh pattern or icons taking a new life with an innovative palette and that’s exactly how we landed here! You all know we are rainbow-lovers, but our favorite subject matter done in a toned-down, muted palette is giving us LIFE! Do you love it as much as we do?

We love Target!! We do! So when we found out that our line of planners and calendars was chosen to be placed in EVERY. SINGLE. TARGET. STORE, We felt like it was a little hard to believe. But just as of 10:30pm last night when we went on a Target run to pick up some supplies for the studio, it all became super real. We both stopped in our tracks as we spotted our collection on the shelves! So here we are today, SO EXCITED (and a little more polished than our live instagram video-yikes) to share this collection with you!!!

Our partner, Blue Sky, produces the best quality agendas and calendars, so we cannot wait for you guys to get your hands on these. The collection features painterly brushstrokes, hand drawn lettering, and hand stamped patterns in a variety of bold black and white and pops of fun color!! We have a couple of 8.5 x 11 formats, a couple of fabric-covered 5 x 8s and a couple of monthly desk pads (22" x 17"), so hopefully, we have all of your 2017 planning needs met! We keep the pages clean and simple so there is plenty of open space to fill in your glorious plans for 2017!!

Follow along on instagram (@AmpersandStudio) and we'll be sharing more detailed shots and walking you through the inside pages and one of our favorite features!!!

Pantone Color of the Year // 2016

Ampersand Design Studio

As completely color-obsessed as we are, you can imagine how much we love seeing the Pantone Color of the Year announcement! It's sort of like how kids feel on Christmas morning. We completely believe that the colors that people are unknowingly drawn to are such a reflection of what is going on in the world so it's always fascinating to see how each year unfolds! As pantone puts it: a symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.

For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.

We are TOTALLY on board with this years prediction and although we typically are drawn to brights, we've been feeling such a strong pull toward lighter, more airy hues! What do you guys think?
