Pantone should be announcing the 2015 Color of the Year any day now. I'm excited to see what it is. As much as I liked 2014's Radiant Orchid as a color, it's not something that made much of an appearance in my crafting. (It goes without saying that it did not make much of an appearance in my wardrobe, as I haven't intentionally followed a clothing trend since wearing rugby shirts, popped collars, pegged pants, and multiple pairs of socks in 8th grade.)
The Spring 2015 Color Report is called 'En Plein Air. It features colors that take "a cue from nature rather than being reinvented or mechanically manipulated. Soft, cool hues blend with subtle warm tones to create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.” I'd recommend reading the whole report and/or watching the video. It is very interesting. Here are the colors we should be seeing in 2015:
It's a nice palette, especially the blues. I like Toasted Almond and Glacier Gray as neutrals. I like Strawberry Ice, Tangerine Orange, and Custard Yellow too. The only color I don't like at all is Marsala Red. I'm not crazy about Lucite Green. I hope neither of them is named the Color of the Year.
Here's a look back at the previous Color of the Year selections:
I'd say we're due for a blue! I'd love to see Classic Blue as the 2015 Color of the Year, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Glacier Gray. I've been seeing a lot of both in the sneak peeks that scrapbooking companies are beginning to release.
What are your thoughts? How do you like the 2015 palette? Any predictions (or hopes) for Color of the Year?
