Color me skeptical

Pantone, the leading authority on color and color trends, just announced the Color of the Year for 2016.

There are two: Rose Quartz and Serenity.

Pantone says these shades reflect society’s ‘search for peace and tranquility.’

I think someone on the selection committee is having a baby.



Two-gether forever

Emerald may be the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013…but what is the Pantone Pairing?

Milk and cookies?
Bacon and eggs?
Ham and cheese?

Minneapolis-based illustrator and art director David Schwen has re-imagined all our favorite comfort foods as Pantone color swatches on his Instagram blog.

The idea came to him quite by accident, but the visual experiment somehow gets to the art at the heart of the culinary combinations we hold most dear.

My nomination for favorite Pantone Pairing?  Peanut butter and cheese.









Don’t knock it till you’ve paired it.
