As a graphic designer, I have always loved Pantone although I never really used it for print works because as we all know, it is customized color. That means a specific Pantone blue in print isn’t made up of four inks (CMYK) but rather a single ink in exact color with a numerical value. I don’t think you can accurately achieve a Pantone color through 4-color printing process and that’s what makes every Pantone color so special and expensive.
And now that I’m trying my hand on interior decorating, I still love to inject some Pantone hues in the design. Right now, I’m thinking of doing it in our work area since I have a document organizer in orange, close to Tangerine Tango. But I have to do it so subtly to maintain the beach-theme in our house.
For now, here’s a free printable that may inspire you to incorporate some Pantone hues in your own space. This is based on Fall’s 2012 colors.
