The Colours of Summer
The PANTONE PALETTE for 2020
Did you know that Pantone, the colour people, forecast colour trends for everything from fashion to home décor? For spring and summer 2020, it’s all about the familiar. These colour trends were made last fall, and they couldn’t be more accurate about our feelings right now. Pantone may not have known about the pandemic last September, but their palette— designed to be friendly and relatable, conveying a sense of ease—couldn’t be more re ective of the time we’re living in.
“Combining our desire for stability, creativity, and more spontaneous design approaches, the color palette for Spring/Summer 2020 infuses heritage and tradition with a colorful youthful update that creates strong multi-colored combinations as well as energizing and optimistic pairings,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
