I will be honest, I always get a bit nervous when the Pantone Color of the Year is announced. It is typically a vibrant one, thus my reserve. I have never featured the introduction on this blog so as not to play any color up as a color of choice. This year is especially challenging, but I've decided to feature the 2014 Color of the Year per Pantone and to highlight how restraint is important when using a "color of the year" or a trend color.
If this color is one you are attracted to and you want to add to your life, it can be stunning. Stunning in any setting. But please use discretion. Don't use in a way where it appears you are advertising that you are so on trend that you are shouting out the color of the year.
As with any color we add to our lives, it should be a color we love.
