We are just so thrilled to show off our three new colors (well, four when you include beloved Paper Bag from earlier this year!). Selecting new colors for Paper Source is a lot of fun, but a big responsibility. In order to make one new color, we have to commit to 10,000 pounds of paper. This means we need to feel really good about the color and are hopeful you will too!
Peacock is our new teal blue and it truly works well with the entire PS line. Have fun mixing and matching it within our palette – you’ll be amazed what new life it gives old favorites! Some of my favorite Peacock combinations are when paired with Beet, Chartreuse, Moss, Pool or Curry – I also love it with Persimmon.
Persimmon is a color we nearly introduced with Moss several years ago. Alas, we could not forget about it. The Design team continued using the ink color in projects like the 2009 India collection, loving the warmth of this rich orange-red. Persimmon works well with Paper Bag, Papaya, Poppy, Pool, Chartreuse and of course, its former partner, Moss. But like Peacock, it works well with most all of the palette.
And Sunshine, which was a request from our customers. Each month we’d hear from our store managers (yes, they do share the requests that you make!) that customers were looking for a warm, bright, sunny yellow – a yellow that would work well for weddings…a happy yellow! Sunshine pairs beautifully with the oranges and greens in the line and takes on a sophisticated look when paired with Gravel.
Have fun and enjoy the satisfaction of creating your own favorite color combos with these newbies. Welcome to the family Peacock, Persimmon, and Sunshine!
