What is Pantone you ask?
The most trusted name in the industry, they not only offer an opinion about upcoming trends in fashion and clothing design- they set the standard. They developed the definitive color reference system called the Pantone Color Matching System
The Pantone Color Matching System is largely a standardized color reproduction system. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to the Pantone system to make sure colors match without direct contact with one another.
One such use is standardizing colors in the CMYK process. The CMYK process is a method of printing color by using four inks—cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. A majority of the world's printed material is produced using the CMYK process, and there is a special subset of Pantone colors that can be reproduced using CMYK.
Although fall is usually categorized by warm oranges, yellows, and deep reds, this years design trends are leaving room for something new: bold blue. Surprisingly sophisticated, rooms adorned with this bold color are all the rage this fall season. The color can dress your home modern, traditional, or chic, and is great for the entire year around
