Forecast: Chance of Coral

December 8, 2018

You have to love the optimism of the Pantone Color Institute. Every December brings us their prediction of a color that we will be seeing a lot of in the coming year. Each prediction has them waxing poetic on their selection…hoping to convince us of the relevance of their choice. I’m  still waiting to see previous Color of the Year selections like Marsala, Serenity and Purple Passion flood the marketplace. While the 2019 color of the Year, Living Coral, is pretty enough I’m not convinced we’ll be seeing it everywhere. It makes one wonder if Pantone, when it comes to forecasting, might have better luck predicting the weather.

Really?

Inventive and imaginative, dramatically provocative and thoughtful…that’s how the Pantone Color Institute describes its selection for the Color of the Year 2018. Wax poetic if you must, at the end of the day, it’s purple.
