Pantone, known for creating color consistency through its color matching system since 1963, is on the cutting edge of trends in color. And now, for the first time ever, the system is basing a color on something from the entertainment industry: the Minions from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me franchise.
The custom Pantone Minion Yellow color will be included in the next color addition in the Fashion, Home+ Interiors color palette, and if you’re interested in learning more about how to use it in your home, read on or speak to a trained consultant at Georgia Blinds & Interiors, right here in Atlanta.
How Might You Use Forecasted Colors?
Coined “The Color of Intelligence,” Minion Yellow is a vibrant color that will lift spirits and moods. Because of its vibrancy, it will match well with several darker colors. For example, if you match it with purple, you will have a perfect complementary color combination. Add the achromatic brown, and you have another look. As a rule of thumb, if you want to combine colors, you should keep a balance of 60%-30%-10% to make sure you don’t create competition of color.
Things to Keep in Mind
If you don’t like the forecasted color, you could use it as an accent or not at all. Remember, when you use colors you don’t like, it tends to make you focus on areas you would otherwise avoid. Don’t use the colors in rooms where you want to feel your best. Also, when selecting colors for your room, select the colors you love. Trendy colors come and go, and unless you have tons of money, you should go with what you love and not what you feel you need just because it’s stylish. Finally, remember that color forecasting is strictly to keep all manufacturers’ specifying the same colors to help the consumers coordinate and create a beautiful space. It is a guideline, and popular colors may vary in different regions.
