The color giant unveiled its top picks for the hottest months of the year at an event recently, and each of the four shades will make you smile, guaranteed.
The event in question was a celebration of a new pop-up coffee spot called Cafe Oled that was infused in the summery shades. Here are the vibrant hues you’ll be seeing everywhere this season.
Pink Peacock: “A color, we would say in Pantone-speak, that combines ‘fun with flair,’” said Pantone Color Institute vice president Laurie Pressman at the event. Spice up your park picnics with some fuchsia gingham textiles.
Turmeric: An in-your-face orange meant to glow and energize. Play up its brightness by incorporating it into your space through glass or acrylic details.
Pepper Stem: A celery green tied to freshness and growth. In Pressman’s words, “It’s a color we’d call ‘nature’s neutral.’” Swap your white and gray tea towels for one in this punchy shade.
Aspen Gold: Warm and sunny, this invigorating citrus hue is the indisputable color of summer. Pick smaller accents in this tone, like a mug, and display them on your open shelving front and center.
