Just as the sun’s rays lift our spirits and mood, so does the forecast color of Pantone Minion Yellow, termed “The Color of Intelligence.” For the first time ever, Pantone has been inspired by entertainment—the Minions from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me franchise. If you’re familiar with the Fashion, Home+ Interiors color palette, you’ll see the new color in the next round. If you’re looking to add Minion Yellow—or any other shade—to your home, work with Perfect Fit Window Fashions in the Ft. Myers area. We’ll help you match the specific Pantone color you want.
Using Pantone Minion Yellow
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. However, if you’re interested in using this color, here are some tips for combinations that might work best.
- Minion Yellow is a vibrant tone, and if you match it with purple, you will have a perfect complementary color combination. Add the achromatic brown, and you have another look.
- For more three colors, keep a balance of 60%-30%-10% to make sure you don’t create competition of color. A soft look would be a brown room, with yellow as the 30% and purple as the 10% accent color.
- Play with the color to create the look and feel you want. For example, try combinations of Minion Yellow with indigo, magenta, and black.
If you don’t like the forecasted color, you could use it as an accent or not at all. When you use colors you don’t like, it tends to make you focus on areas you would otherwise avoid. Don’t use colors you don’t like in rooms where you want to feel your best.
Designers wanted a tool that could be used universally to ensure consistent color selection every time. So, in 1963, Pantone established the first color matching system, referred to as the Pantone Matching system or simply PMS system. Today, Pantone is the main reference tool for all industries when they work to match colors and forecasted hues.
