Indy's spring color forecast

Indianapolis is full of new colors this spring. Being a graphic designer, I can't help taking them all in along with the fresh air. I even came across a few intriguing color combinations while exploring our very own neighborhood: some purposeful, some accidental. 

Inspired to incorporate them into your next project? We even tracked down the Pantone® swatches to match. 

The horizontal striping on the old Skip's Food Market building on is a great example of how to pair a bright color like Tangerine Tango with neutral tones.

Up the street, Reclaimed! is showcasing a vibrantly-colored chair. A nearby building echoes the tangerine trend on its exterior.

Pantone 17-1463 Tangerine Tango, Pantone Cool Gray 10, and Pantone 346

The Outpost and La Margarita recently added pops of chartreuse to their entry and patio areas. These neon elements provide a nice contrast to the natural wood and brick building materials.


Pantone 381, Pantone 7504

The blue color on the Halstead Architects signage seems to come straight out of the spring skyline. The purple buds against the blue sky inspire a soothing palette.


Pantone 5425, Pantone 2385

Have you stumbled upon any great color combinations around Indy? We'd love to hear about it.
