And the Color of the Year Is…

Every year, the Pantone Color Institute chooses a color of the year. This color will be used as the basis for everything from wallpaper to clothing to planners (affiliate link)—and everything in between. This year’s choice is Living Coral, a color that will brighten up any palette and work well as an accent to many dark colors.

When the color of the year is revealed, there are always mixed reactions. Some love it, some hate it, and others are indifferent. Whether you’re a fan of the current color of the year or perhaps of one of the colors from the last five years, we have a project for you. Here’s a list of projects by color for you to choose from.
