Fall 2009 Color Trends from the Pantone Institute

Subtle contrasts make up the diverse color palette for fall 2009, according to color authority Pantone Inc. “The fall 2009 palette is more unique and thoughtful than the typical autumnal hues of years past,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Designers recognize the desire for fundamental basics that speak to current economic conditions, but also understand the need to incorporate vibrant color to grab the consumers’ eyes and entice them to buy.”
