Color is something that's all around us, yet we often overlook its powerful ability to impact both mood and perception. Pantone is often looked to as the color gurus, so lets take a look at what they earlier predicted to be the big color hits of fall/winter 2009/10.
Pantone says, "A natural choice during uncertain times, patriotic American Beauty,a wonderfully balanced, true red, speaks to the need for cohesiveness. Perfect for all skin tones, American Beauty is a feel-good color. Purple Heart connotes a sense of refinement and sensuality, adding an air of creativity and excitement to the top 10, especially when paired with American Beauty."
Congratulations, Pantone. You were right on the money with American Beauty and Purple Heart. Jewel-toned shades certainly become more popular with the cooler weather, and this is more apparent in 2009 than ever. From cosmetic companies to haute couture fashion houses, fabric designers to interior decorators, purple isn't going anywhere anytime soon in the creative industries
