Yes, I am a color nerd. I get ridiculously excited when Pantone releases their seasonal color reports, and I relish in the act of searching for pretty things that incorporate the chosen colors. If you share in my color geekdom, you might enjoy my recent posts on two of this season's picks, honeysuckle and silver peony (as well as Pantone's full Spring and Fall 2011 reports).
Dainty Dish asked me to write a feature on a spring color, I was thrilled.
Silver cloud is one of my absolute favorite neutrals, and perfect for springtime. Its pale, vapor-like gray hue reminds me of April skies in the early morning, before the sun breaks through the clouds, misty and light. Unlike some of its bold spring-color siblings, silver cloud can be paired beautifully with almost any other color. It's classic and timeless, and epitomizes the blank canvas: subtle and tastefully unassuming, but ready for anything.

I'm crossing my fingers that this year's April showers bring lots of silver clouds with them. What are your thoughts on this spring's neutral "it" color?
P.S. Make sure you stop by You Go Glen Coco and Dainty Dish tomorrow for the next posts in the Spring Fever series, which will feature two of my favorite springtime topics: clothes and yummy botanical scents.
