As expected, the fall 2016 Pantone colors are not as bright as Spring Pantone Colors. The overall theme is what you’d expect from fall colors, but it does have a bit of a twist. There are more blue tones and the only green, Lush Meadow, on the list is quite bright.
Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.

I personally enjoy the Dusty Cedar tone. It’s a nice balance between pink and red.
