Designing in Pantone’s Palette of the Week: Intrigue
Pantone’s palette of the week is mysterious, whimsical, and unconventional—without sacrificing approachability. This article outlines how professional designers are integrating the Intrigue color palette into their designs.
Pantone’s Intrigue palette is all about contrast. Though there is clear juxtaposition between nature-inspired hues, such as Calliste Green and Xenon Blue, and eclectic pops of silver, gold, and purple—including Pantone’s Color of the Year 2018, Ultra Violet—the palette makes a strong impression as a whole. If you’re intrigued by Intrigue, check out our inspirational guide below.
Designs in Intrigue
The Intrigue palette relates well to the current trend of dark and smoky finishes in contemporary design. You can create a monochromatic effect by pairing Blackened Pearl and Silver together—then, to uplift the look, introduce a pop of color to the mix, such as Ultra Violet.
Inspiration for your design can be found in full bloom in a woodland garden or displayed artfully in a floral arrangement. Other parallels can be drawn to slick bedrock spotted with moss. Next, find products, paints, or fabrics by a specific color. Wherever you go, your palette will be there with you.
