Each year, Pantone works towards identifying and inspiring color trends for fashion and home furnishings, and this year, they have gone further into their search for natural influences.
The palette below adds a different point-of-view to the ocean-inspired color. Pantone has set their eyes upon the Japanese ceremonial preparation and presentation of matcha, called the Way of Tea. They have created a palette they call Tea Garden, which was made to evoke harmony, respect, and tranquility.
The blending of the deep hues caught my eye—as did the Katagami fabric used in the Pantone samples.
