And the Winners of the Spring 2018 Pantone Colour Challenge Are…

written by

Jac

A few weeks ago we set you the challenge to design your take on a wedding inspiration board themed on one of the 12 gorgeous colours Pantone predicts will be trending in Spring 2018.  And boy did you all take up the challenge! We received a record number of entries which we whittled down with difficulty to just three finalists per colour.  The tough job of picking an overall winner for each colour story fell to our guest judge, wedding inspiration expert Louise Beukes, editor of the wonderful B.Loved blog.
So without further ado, it gives us great pleasure to present Louise’s winners of the Spring 2018 Pantone Colour Trend Challenge!
