Pantone Shutter GuyJust as the sun’s rays lift our spirits and mood, so does the forecast color of Pantone Minion Yellow, termed “The Color of Intelligence.” In groundbreaking fashion, Pantone is basing a forecasted color on entertainment characters, and it’s already a big hit. If you’re looking to add the forecasted color—or any other shade—to your home, work with Windo VanGo serving Baltimore. We’ll be happy to help you match the specific Pantone color you want. Remember, color forecasting is strictly to keep all manufacturers’ specifying the same colors to help the consumers coordinate and create a beautiful space. It is a guideline, and popular colors may vary in different regions.

So Why Pantone Minion Yellow?

Minion Yellow is a vibrant tone, and it will lift the spirits of any room. Match it with purple for a perfect complementary color combination. Or combine colors with a balance of 60%-30%-10% to make sure you don’t create competition of color. For example, for a soft look, take a brown room and add Minion Yellow as the 30% and purple as the 10% accent color. A more dramatic look would be yellow, indigo, magenta, and black, creating a split complementary combination.Continue Reading
