Since I’m a trained graphic designer — I always get a rush of geeky excitement when I see fresh PANTONE© products that bring the look of the famous Pantone color chip cards to life in new ways. Today’s spotlight: A colorful collection of Pantone bedding and bathroom accessories now at J. C. Penney.
The collection is not super large. It features coordinating bedding, along with bathroom towels, rugs, ceramic accessories and shower curtains. There are only four Pantone colorways available — tangerine, purple, blue and emerald (Pantone’s current color of the year). The limited palette is a bit disappointing since I always associate the name Pantone with such a luscious a rainbow of colors. That said, if you’ve been on the lookout for the brightly colored bedding or bath accessories in these jewel tones, you’re in luck.
The bedding is bright with mostly the simple, color-blocked look that Pantone is famous for. However, there are a few design twists — “ombre” pillows, “rubber dipped” prints, rubber-dipped ceramics, and some wavy showering curtains.
The bath accessories come in the same four colors as the main bedding with more options for bath mats and towels. The famous Pantone logo is strangely absent — which I suppose is desirable if you are simply looking for a purple toothbrush holder and not really into having all your accessories look like a Pantone chip.
When it comes time to select the shower curtain — you can choose from the solid color blocked model tagged with the pantone logo or a few of the abstract prints that use pantone colors like the curtain below.
