A New Color Tool....

I just built a file that shows all of the combinations of two neutrals (using the 14 neutrals that we've used for a while: black, dark gray, light gray, navy, petrol, taupe, olive, denim, natural, cordovan, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, khaki and camel), juxtaposed with all 10 of the Pantone 2016 colors.

Eevery year, I do this because, for me, these files are a very useful and inspiring source of color combinations with which to work. You might see some beautiful ideas, too!

sample page

It's $3.99, which helps me pay to have the (rather large) file hosted and "downloadable" 24 hours a day.

If you choose to grab this lovely thing, make sure to let me know what color combination(s) are your favorites. I will definitely be building wardrobes around some of these...

love,
Janice

  3. My eye immediately went to 'g' and the 'snorkel' blue. Maybe there is something to astrological signs - I am an Aquarious and I've always been inordinately drawn to blues - preferably the deep, rich colors.

  5. I vote for light grey and petrol, but more importantly I think this is such a clever idea because you can really see how a colour changes when put next to a different neutral - you could end up having one accent colour acting as two accent colours! Thanks for your ongoing innovation Janice

    1. They mean absolutely nothing except they're nice shapes to use for the neutral colors. My goal was to use a shape that would be slightly larger than the shapes I used for the accents, indicating that they neutrals should be more important in one's wardrobe.

      I guess we could interpret them to mean that one color could be worn on top, and one on bottom, but that would be giving more meaning to them than they deserve!

      thanks for asking!
      Janice
