“This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”
Leatrice Eiseman
Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute®

This is a deep color that we are excited about seeing in use this year.  You will notice in Pantone’s photo album that this color, while subtle, can be made to stand out and elevate the right design.

We could see this color in use on interior architectural signs, window displays, or wall graphics.  This warm color is not only inviting, but has rich tones that ensure expensive looking displays.  This color is also versatile.  You can pair this color with gold or silver for a pop of glamour or pair it with neutrals to make it pop.

Will you use this color in your designs?  How will you use this color at SGIA this year?  Do you hope to see this color pop up in our local Portland signs?
