Today I went to the Pacific Market Center and attended a seminar by Leatrice Easeman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
It just so happens that Leatrice lives near Seattle, on Bainbridge
Island, which is just a short ferry ride from the Seattle waterfront. During
her talk, Leatrice said the color brown will not be going away (yay!)
and that yellow is the new "it" color for this year. She also mentioned purple and orange as being important.
The Home forecast she presented had several themes but the "Wanderings" theme captured my heart. You can watch an abbreviated version of the Color Forecast here.
"The acquisition of intriguing artifacts, crafts, imagery and artwork spur the imagination and re-tells the tale of a wonderful journey. Dusky tones of rose, dijon-like yellows and deepened taupe mix with both mineral Mediterranean blues and misted gray. All shades are dramatically embellished by rich gold and scarlet red."
