In 1963, Pantone established the first color matching system, the Pantone Matching system (or PMS). PMS uses a standardized numbering system to identify each color, making it easy for anyone to refer to a specific color. Today, Pantone is the main reference tool to match colors and forecasted hues. If you’re looking to add color to your home, work with Windows, Walls & More serving Farmington Hills. We’ll happily help you match the specific Pantone color you want.
Inspired by Entertainment’s Minions
For the first time ever, PMS has forecasted a color based on branded characters. The color is inspired by the Minions from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me franchise. Just as the sun’s rays lift our spirits and mood, so does the forecast color of Pantone Minion Yellow, termed “The Color of Intelligence.”
A vibrant color, Minion Yellow matches with purple to create a perfect complementary color combination. Add the achromatic brown, and you have another look. If you’re combining more than two colors, maintain a balance of 60%-30%-10% so you don’t create competition of color. A dramatic look would be yellow, indigo, magenta, and black, creating a split complementary combination. A softer look would be a brown room, with yellow as the 30% and purple as the 10% accent color. Or play with it to create the look and feel you want.
Tips for Forecasted Colors
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. 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.
