I have loved gray as a neutral this summer. I am considering moving it right on forward to fall. In comes Pantone palette Lunar. I need to determine fun contrasts. The above illustration from Pantone is inspiring. “In Lunar, a color palette found in Wonder, the PANTONEVIEW Colour Planner forecast for Autumn/Winter 2011/2012, we are inspired by the nighttime appearance of the moon and the uniquely earthly phenomenon we call snow.” per Pantone.
The gray has worked well for me, why change. Just update. Pantone agrees.
