Pantone Colour Forecast 2015

Posted in: Design Trends

While it may feel like the year has only just begun, predictions for the next year have already been cast.

No crystal ball is necessary when you are looking into the future of colour. Typically forecasted two to three years in advance, predictions undergo a high volume of scrutiny before the final decision. There are many factors that play a role in determining a colour forecast, just as aspects from all parts of our daily lives influence the outcome.

For 2015, Pantone in the US has decided on nine distinct colour palettes comprised of eight colours each, totaling seventy-two shades. Finding inspiration in everything from high-fashion to heightened senses, these palettes are bold yet sophisticated. Roaring with colour, they also speak softly – exuberance with an unusual finesse. Harmonious shades and complex color story’s make for a compelling 2015 forecast.

Do these colour story’s speak to you? Can you relate to their definitions? Unlikely colour combinations engage us, beckoning us to become more spontaneous.

Whether you choose to live wildly or soulfully, these colour palettes should inspire you to live freely.
