Pantone Fall 2016~ Sharkskin

August 31, 2016

By Tab Byrum


Pantone says their third color, Sharkskin, is “pair-able with almost any fall color bright or muted”. As we all know and have discussed a lot here on the blog gray is being looked at more and more as a neutral color, a color that can be paired or grouped with other colors and still shine through on its own strength. I LOVE gray so much and Sharkskin may very well be the perfect gray. Sharkskin is a great complimentary color, a gray that depending what you put it with it goes a little lighter or a little darker. I think gray is a great color to use in the home and I’m looking at it more and more as a base color for floor color, trim color, rugs, and wood stain color and of course gray is a beautiful fashion color with more and more designers creating beautiful statement pieces in gray like leather jackets and shoes. Today we have a small sampling of what’s available in Sharkskin, hopefully, this gives you some inspiration, Enjoy!!! (above image via)
