One of my favorite things about a new year has got to be the release of the #ColoroftheYear by Pantone. Last year it was Emerald Green. I happen to love color and color theory. Colors are so important in our world as a form of expression. What color you wear to a job interview matters and what color you paint your walls will either help you sleep or hinder your sleep. It's really quite fascinating. Looking back over the last decade, Pantone has been releasing a color of the year for a while. It's really amazing to follow this trend to see how their color predictions have helped shape the colors of clothes, home design, and more in our world. When you look back over the past decade, it's interesting to see there hasn't yet been a single, strong blue. Predictions for 2015? I've been following the color of the year since Tangerine Tango made it's debut to the world with a joint marketing campaign with Sephora. You can now get color matched makeup goodies for each new color of the year (here). It's no surprise that I am drawn to the greens and green-blues from the past chosen colors. As a redhead, I am drawn to colors that are complimentary to my hair and skin tone. What colors do you love? What colors are you drawn to? In 2014, Pantone is making waves again with their color of the year selection: Radiant Orchid. The color has a lot more blue than many of their past colors of the year (though my fingers are crossed on Royal Blue for 2015). What color would you choose for 2015? I am excited for Radiant Orchid as I think it will be beautifully complimented next to my wardrobe of Tangerine Tango and Emerald Green from years past, mixed with neutrals like Black and White which are sure to make waves this year through fashion both on our bodies and in our homes.
