Warm + Fuzzy Fall 2019 PANTONE Neutrals
Autumn is right around the corner, and PANTONE is already making us feel all warm and fuzzy.
The generally muted neutral colors in fall seasonal design palettes are nowhere to be found in Autumn 2019. In their place, PANTONE has blended a warm, comfortable array of off-whites and browns that looks like a delicious swirl of ice cream.
The PANTONE Autumn/Winter 2019 collection features some of our favorite off-white tones of the last 5 years. Crème de Pêche and Vanilla Custard dare to come as close to peach and yellow as possible while remaining off-white. Their evocative names are absolutely perfect; the creamy custard of these 2 beautiful, versatile neutral tones allows designers to add a hint of warm color while remaining soft and subtle.
We’ve decided to feature brown tones from both the New York and London PANTONE Autumn/Winter 2019 collections. The warm, sugary feeling each of them provides is so much fun we couldn’t separate them from one another. The browns in this fall’s color trend report each look like a beautiful, rich finished wood floor.
Hazel (London) and Sugar Almond (New York) are obviously “sister tones” in the two Autumn/Winter 2019 reports. Each is a sweet, nutty brown with an appealing richness, and works in parallels with wood grains and tones splendidly.
If Hazel and Sugar Almond are the nuts, then Rocky Road is the delicious chocolate that surrounds them. Most recent PANTONE seasonal color trend reports have “that” earthy dark brown, and Rocky Road fills the niche beautifully for Autumn 2019. Like Brown Granite (Spring 2019) and Emperador (Spring 2018) before it, Rocky Road is the anchor that ties the PANTONE Autumn/Winter 2019 collection together.
“Paloma endures”, Laurie Pressman of PANTONE remarks about the gray tone that appears in the Autumn/Winter 2019 Classics collection. Paloma is a classic, elegant gray that provides a wonderful complementary shade to virtually every tone in the seasonal report.
