The look was coined “En Plein Air” by the Pantone Color board.  “En Plein Air” is a french term referring to painting the outdoors.  It’s easy to see the influence of landscapes, water and nature from the cool tones in the spring 2015 color palette.

What a refreshing change from the strong colors that have dominated recently.

So, what’s your impression?  Will you embrace the new color options?

Next time we’ll look at the warm tones in the color palette.

Until next time …
