2016 Pantone Color of the Year Predictions

{singing} It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

No, we’re not talking about Christmas…it’s almost time for Pantone to release their 2016 Color of the Year! In case they’re still debating between different swatches, here’s what we think they should choose.


Jen’s Prediction: Pantone 630

It's both fresh and retro at the same time…très chic.


Danni’s Prediction: Pantone 7710

I think it's going to be a light teal because it's my tween daughter's favorite color and I'm now seeing it everywhere. Considering she's in the age range where she's hyper aware of trends, I'm trusting her judgment.


Kelly’s Prediction: Warm Gray #9

It’s neutral, goes with everything, and is warm n’ cozy. Best paint color ever. Plus, a shade of gray has never won!


Ryan’s Prediction: Pantone 172

Cincinnati Bengals’ orange, because they're gonna win the Super Bowl.


Katie’s Prediction: Pantone 606

I just love me some yellow! This shade is bright, sunny and just what 2016 needs—a little fun!


Lora’s Prediction: Pantone 159

I’m just feelin’ kinda fall right now…burnt orange all the way.


Bobby’s Prediction: Pantone 2985

It's the color shirt I am wearing.
