Pantone 2020 Color of the Year

As usual, I've been anxiously awaiting the announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year. They were teasing it all day yesterday, so I expect the news any time. Traditionally, Pantone selects the Color of the Year from its Spring/Summer palette, which is announced in the fall. According to Pantone,

"Combining our desire for stability, creativity, and more spontaneous design approaches, the color palette for Spring/Summer 2020 infuses heritage and tradition with a colorful youthful update that creates strong multi-colored combinations as well as energizing and optimistic pairings..."

Here is the Spring/Summer 2020 palette:

I really love the palette and would happy with most of these as Color of the Year. I particularly love Saffron, Orange Peel, and Mosaic Blue. My least favorites are Biscay Green, Coral Pink, and Cinnamon Stick. I'm not feeling super confident about COTY, but if forced to guess I'll go with Flame Scarlet. Or Classic Blue. 

What are you liking? Any predictions?


  1. "Heritage and tradition" make me think of Classic Blue and Faded Denim. "Energized and optimistic" makes me think of the word Sunlight (though I'd expect it to be brighter).

  2. FINALLY!!! A color group I can actually wear with my coloring! LOL! I love them all!
