What is Pantone Color of the Year?

Pantone, famous for its Pantone Matching System (PMS) used in printing, started the Color of the Year tradition in 2000. This annual announcement has become influential in fashion, interior design, and other design-related fields. Each year, the selected color is intended to reflect cultural moods and trends.

The process of selecting the Color of the Year involves considerable trend analysis. Pantone’s color experts at the Pantone Color Institute scour the world looking for new color influences. This can include the entertainment industry, emerging artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, new lifestyles, socio-economic conditions, and new technologies.

Notable past colors include:

  • Pantone 17-1463 Tangerine Tango (2012): A spirited reddish-orange that provided energy and encouragement.
  • Pantone 18-3838 Ultra Violet (2018): A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade that communicated originality and visionary thinking.
  • Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue (2020): A timeless and enduring blue hue, elegant in its simplicity.
  • Pantone 17-3938 Very Peri (2022): A new Pantone color whose courageous presence encourages personal inventiveness and creativity.

These unique colors have influenced product development and purchasing decisions in many industries over the last 25 years since their introduction. They also reflect the global spirit at the time they were chosen.

3) Taj Mahal with Peach Fuzz: gives off an elevated, sophisticated look. The tones of the Taj Mahal ground the bright & energetic peach tones to create harmony and tranquillity in a space. See this photo for an example of this soft-toned gray stone pairing well with a peachy-themed kitchen. Sage or muted greens with mulberry/deeper mauve tones work well to compliment this duo, especially in larger kitchens that bring in a lot of natural light.

We // Recommend: Use kitchen accessories and plants to outfit a space of peachy tones & quartzite countertops with a seasonal approach; deeper tones of mulberry, pine, and burnt orange in the winter with lighter tones of eucalyptus, lemon yellow, & saturated blues in the summer months.
