Color You Can Eat~Pantone Color Inspiration

I am sure you have heard someone say, “That color looks good enough to eat!”  Maybe you have even said it yourself when looking at a particularly rich color of red or a sweet cotton candy pink.  Well a blogger has been playing around with Pantone colors and her food.  Pantone is a wonderful source for color inspiration and exploration.

I know the rule is that you don’t play with your food.  However, once you see her creations, you might abandon that rule for some food and color fun.  The blog is in French, but you don’t need to reach back to your high school French to understand what the author is doing.  Summer is on its way and Spring is already here.  You can find many different colors in your daily fruits and vegetables to inspire your color exploration.  You can check out the results of her color and  food play here.  After checking out her site, I encourage you to play with your food to find colors that inspire you.  If you have any questions about color and paint, please give me a call at (508) 740-6212, email me at, or send me a message on Facebook.  Don’t forget to check out my color inspiration boards on Pinterest.

Have a wonderful weekend!
