At Crescent, we love color, and staying on top of color trends is one of our favorite priorities.
This month, several companies released their 2020 color forecasts, including Pantone who released their top 12 colors for Spring/Summer 2020. The top 12 include saturated and vibrant colors mixed with soft tones and classic neutrals.
According to Pantone Color Institute color experts, colors for Spring/Summer 2020, New York express our desire for a sense of the familiar. Friendly and relatable, a palette of colors that conveys a sense of ease. At the same time, in this era of personalized self- expression, this palette of recognized favorites uses the familiar to take some unique twists and turns highlighting elements of humor, modernity and entertainment.
“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,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
