Welcome to the sixth installment of our Pantone Spring Colors series! During these ten weeks, we’re going over the spring palette with you, color by color. We’re talking complementary colors, and we’re showing you tons of great furniture and accessories that correspond with each hue.

Whether you want your space to make you feel more relaxed or more energized, you’ll be a fan of spring’s best colors. They’re inspired by nature and range from soft and soothing to bold and bright, making them the perfect way to transform any home.

“Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves,” says Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute™. “With our culture still surrounded by so much uncertainty, we are continuing to yearn for those softer shades that offer a sense of calm and relaxation.”

Limpet Shell

“A shade of aqua that leans toward the green family, PANTONE 13-4810 Limpet Shell is clear, clean and defined,” continues Eiseman. “Suggestive of clarity and freshness, its crisp and modern influences evoke a deliberate, mindful tranquility.”

Some of you are no doubt asking yourselves, “What the heck is a limpet?” Limpets are a type of aquatic snail that has a broad, conical shell that doesn’t coil like the snails you might find in your garden. As it turns out, these little guys are pretty neat. Their teeth (smaller than a millimeter each) are made up of the strongest biological material ever tested—even stronger than most man-made materials! Plus, their muscular feet allow them to both move around and cling securely to rocks in order to withstand huge waves.

We think Limpet Shell will have similar staying power in your home. Try pairing this calming hue with Iced Coffee, Peach Echo or Rose Quartz for a clean, contemporary look.
