And the Pantone color of the year is…

Emerald2 Yep, emerald!

First of all, to be honest, I’m not at all sure what the Pantone color of the year is supposed to mean. Are we all going to put on our own rendition of “Think Pink” from Funny Face, adjusted to this year’s appropriate color?

I’m skeptical that someone actually thinks the fashion and design world can commit to loving one single color for more than 3 weeks, but I admit that I like this year’s selection. After a couple years of Pantone color choices that felt “eh..” to me, I think this one felt more on point.

That said, I still can’t shake the image of someone somewhere at Pantone prancing around their office in this fashion.
