A Tiffany Christmas…every girl dreams of one. There aren’t many of us that don’t get excited by those blue Tiffany’s boxes full of promise. I was in Tiffany’s before Christmas ……..just browsing, when a waiter dressed to the max in tails and white gloves offered me a baby cupcake served from a silver platter. It was almost too good to eat!!
The icing was the perfect match to the Tiffany blue and to top it off it was covered in glittery sandy sugar in the same color. What a lovely treat when doing some Christmas shopping.
I ended up buying something treasurable but it was a memorable visit. Tiffany Blue is the colloquial name for the light medium robin egg blue associated with Tiffany & Co., the New York City jewelry company. The color was used on the cover of Tiffany’s Blue Book, first published in 1845.
Since then Tiffany & Co. has used the color extensively on promotional materials, including boxes and bags. The Tiffany Blue color is protected as a color trademark by Tiffany & Co. in some jurisdictions including the U.S.
The color is produced as a private custom color by Pantone, with PMS number 1837, the number deriving from the year of Tiffany’s foundation. As a trademarked color, it is not publicly available and is not printed in the Pantone Matching System swatch books.
Still searching for the color scheme for the season? Follow me as I lead and indulge in the time – honored shade of Tiffany blue! I absolutely adore the effortless elegance of this gorgeous 19th century New York City brownstone, which perfectly balances Tiffany blues with soft, buttery yellows and neutral creams. Simple touches of Tiffany blue create a stylish contrast against the home’s creamy yellow interior.
The classic color makes a delightful pop against the crisp, white hue of the entryway bookshelf, while beautiful blue ornaments and gift-wrapped presents evoke the yuletide spirit. Maintaining a subtle tone, exquisite tapered candles and decorative napkins deliver hints of Tiffany blue to the living room.
