When it comes to colour, all eyes (brown, blue, green and every other colour) turns to the most recognised institute around, Pantone.
Whether it is for fashion, branding, interiors or anything else colour plays a part in, then Pantone has the final say.
At the end of every year, Pantone announces what they determine will be the ‘Colour of the year’ for the following year.
This will then set the trend and direct us to purchase cushions, bed linen, clothing and other items in this colour, ensuring we are always ‘on trend’.
And if you are not a fan of the new ‘it’ colour, well suck it up or go home! Albeit to a home with the wrong colour, so last season.
2015 colour was ‘Marsala’. Personally I was not a fan.
But what about next year??
Katherine Burns at Logo Design Gurus has had a go at predicting just what 2016 Colour of the Year will be. Using a clever cheat sheet, here is her take on it.
I like this colour, a lot. To me it’s more versatile then 2015’s offering.
I could see this on the walls, or as a velvet on a sofa or as a rug.
But I guess we will have to wait until December to find out if it’s the winner!!
