Pantone Colours


A fitting colour for this time of the year. September is usually a month that promises more settled weather, warm days but chilly mornings and evenings. The Return of the Westerlies or the European Monsoon is over and autumn is on its way.

Pantone describes 17-1547 as

radiant emberglow, a traditional autumnal tone, emanates the
warmth of a glowing fire — the perfect panacea to the crisp air of fall.

I'm looking forward to some spectacular sunsets, great autumn shades and enjoying the outdoors.

As usual I have combed Etsy for items but before I show you those I've got to introduce you to Fred the Cat from City Road on Etsy. He didn't quite fit into the treasury but I love him and his mismatched eyes. He's very on trend with his emberglow and honeysuckle stripes. Don't you think?

So feast your eyes on emberglow and feel the warmth.

Cat - what a lovely treasury and a great color. I still am not certain I understand emberglow from pantone's description, but I think I get from your lovely selections! Amazing. Also, amazingly adorable is Fred the cat!

Emberglow is such a beautiful color! Pantone is carrying a line of acrylic paints now, I wonder if they offer that color? Your blog is really awesome!
