Color of the Year — you guessed it

Dear orange, Orange, ORANGE: you can call yourself “Living Coral” all you want, but I still see you!

What a cruel trick to play on my orange-weary psyche — you go and get yourself named the Pantone color of the year for 2019 using an alias, an also known as, a fake name — you clever color, you. However, that old adage is true: a tiger can’t change his <orange> stripes. I. Still. See. You.

Pantone picks ‘humanizing’ color as 2019 color of the year

Now that I understand what I’m up against– a conspiracy of orange/living coral/tangerine/pumpkin/salmon or whatever you are calling yourself today and the world-wide marketing reach of Pantone, (the greatest color arbiter in the world)— I vow to conquer you in 2019, embrace you as my friend, and win this struggle using love, not hate.

I will make you into a carrot, just you wait and see.

    I love orange too, so I’m wanting to see this in real fabric. Wondering if I will like it. If it has too much pink in it, I may not. Hmm. We’ll see. The threat of carrots — hahaha!

    I love all thing orange! My kids high school colors were orange and white — they were active in all sports! I can’t tell you how much I’ve spent on things that are primarily orange!

    I’m glad you’re coming over to the orange side 🙂

    Hi Sandy! I believe that’s called an alternate fact. But alas, orange by any other name is still . . . orange. I love it but rarely use it! I look forward to seeing all thing orange for 2019. Embrace it my friend, become one with the orange. Happy Happy Thursday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

      Seriously, I have an orange problem. I just can’t seem to get it out of my head! It lingers there, popping up in all sorts of 2019 plans. Darn Pantone– how did they know???

    Pantone has the final say! 😉For me orange fabric was an aquired taste, but I embrace it now especially with pinks and magentas and all things 1970’s!!!
    I love reading your uniquely you witty posts! 🍑🍊

    I love orange, but only as accents, not to overpowering. I was looking in a decorating magazine and someone had done their whole house in orange and gray – and that was too much!

      T — I must be on some kind of mind meld, because literally every project I’ve been planning for 2019 has orange in it….smh
