T his fall and winter season, Pantone has released a larger than normal set of colors to inspire and get your products moving. The world-renowned Pantone Color Institute states that the fall/ winter color palette is "primed for indi- viduality." The lineup features a range of colors relating to food, like the spicy Chili Pepper, the sweet brown shade of Sugar Almond, or Rocky Road; then we swing to the other side of the color range to the effervescent and unexpected Fruit Dove, topping it with the roaring Orange Tiger. Leatrice Eiseman, a color specialist whose color expertise is recognized world- wide and the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, provides some comments about the fall/winter palette. According to Pantone, a growing number of hotels, museums, restaurants, bars, and other public venues see the need to pay for and create more vibrant, photo-friendly interiors as the desire to have an Instagram- able space continues to grow. This is great to hear regarding home décor and dye-sublimation gifts, in addi- tion to apparel and going to large-format metal or wood prints. Wondering what these colors are? Let's jump in!
