The Colormix Forecast 2019
The Colormix Forecast is a palette to inspire professionals and DIYers to select the right color scheme for any project. This year’s 42-color palette is divided into six themes. Every color in the forecast, whether alone or combined with others, tells a different story. Sue explains how these colors are selected:
The participants on the team
How long it takes
The reason for 42 colors
Some interesting questions we asked:
Is the color gray in or out?
Who is the person who names the colors? This has always intrigued me. You will be interested to know who it is and how they come up with the colors!
What is Sue’s favorite color?
A warm color that is chameleonic and can be a “perfect neutral”.
