nouveau fall colours chosen

the "haute" colours of fall arrived in june and, well, they didn't feel right. sometimes beautiful colours don't translate well in the organic bamboo fabric so i requested two others. these lab dips just arrived. i. love. them. hope you do, too!

now, i need to name them. choose the perfect name for our new blue and green hues and win an item of your choice in that hue this fall. accepting name suggestions now through july 22 in the comment section. let your creativity flow.

bisous. x

Oh, the blue looks like our Lake in Fall. So "Autumn Lake." And the green...Anahata. :)

oooo I so love these colours..."moon pool" is my vote for the darker blue, and "lagoon" for the bluish-green! ;)

Love these calming, cool hues for fall. For the blue, my name ideas are Wave Runner, Marine Mist, Sea Spray, Surf Shimmer, River Rock, Anchored in Blue, and Sparkling Sea Stone. For the green, Sea Glass, Cinque Terre (looks just like the color of the water there!), Lilypad, Lotus Leaf, La Vie en Turquoise, and Painted Earth.

What great colors and they look like something I would like to jump into this week with the heat and humidity in DC!!

So for the blueish, I suggest "Sargasso Sea" and for the green "Viridian".

Amazing colours. I love them :-) Fall will be great, that's what I know for sure.

Beautiful colors, Kimberly!
I like Bleu Tranquilite (for the blue) and Tranquil Emeraude/Emerald (for the Green).
Also one more vote for Blue la la

Hi Kimberly!

Here's an update for my blue choice:

From Whisper del mar to Azul Berry.

Green stays the same: Sea Grass!!

Blue- Azul Berry
Green- Sea Grass

Lots of love!

I like Lapis for the blue, because is such a lush shade that reminds me of the stone Lapis Lazuli. And sticking with the stone theme, I like Deep Turquoise for the green. Both of these names reflect the luxurious and close to nature feel of the TranquiliT brand.

Nancy said...

Love the colors! Can't wait to see the collection:

Blues: Dolphin, Glacier, Pacific, Papillon, Oceana, Cobalt, Indigo, Iris, Breeze, Skylight, bluetail

Green: Tropical, Carribean, Island, Seaside, Paradise, Bamboo, Limelight, Gem, Catalina, Teal, Jewel, Sprite :)

Strangely I had a dream about the names last night after reading this post!

Random ideas:

Ocean Breeze, Seaglasss, India green or something like that ( for the green-ish blue) - Eco-Denim or bluejean for the blue one..

Jessica said...

I *LOVE* the colors! Cool tones are my colors, so I'm super excited. I live near Vancouver, BC, so I like "rainfall" for the blue and "Deciduous" for the green, as in deciduous trees that grow here, lol.

Such lovely, lovely colors!

Alexa said...

Blue: Lapiz

Green: Jade

As we transition to deeper, autumnal hues, jewel tone-inspired names seem like a natural fit!

Lay said...

I like Alexa's Lapiz and Jade.
As a stone lover, when I wear Lapiz, I will imagine a blue cape like Medicine Buddha's embrace-totally healing.
When I wear the Jade, I will see the green from my heart chakra expanding to meet Mother Nature. This is why I like TranquiliT; the designs, the fabric but also the healing colors that I need every season!

Lots of Love from the Mineral Kingdom as well :)

Ohhh so pretty!

I would call the green hue "Fleur de lis" and the blue color "Royal Copenhagen"
