Here’s a sneak peek at one of Pantone’s picks this fall. It’s called Stormy Weather, which sounds a bit gloomy, yet it’s anything but dreary. This color has richness and depth with its slight blue undertones. I can hear Lena Horn singing “Stormy Weather” in my head, like a broken record…and it’s a good thing.
“Reminiscent of the sky on a gray, overcast day, PANTONE 18-4214 Stormy Weather is dependable, cool and above all, constant. Implying quality and luxury, Stormy Weather is a powerful blue gray shade that is strong, protective and enduring.” ~ Pantone Fashion Color Report 2015
Pantone has chosen one of my favorite shades of gray as a great base or accent color to any room and wardrobe. Below we chose to mix pillows
in midnight blue, slate, and silver to go with this stunning Stormy Weather shade. The combination of silk, velvet, and cotton fabrics provides an interest and helps build a perfect color combination that is sophisticated and refined.

Fashion designer Nicole Miller creates an unusual combination with this corset top and long, free-flowing trumpet skirt made with this smoky gray and pops of mustard and marsala.

This room from Urrutia Designs on Houzz has an earthy and simple feel that gives a nod to nature. Use Stormy Weather as an accent in rooms that have taupe tones for full impact. Because this slate gray-blue color mimics the deep, dark cloud-full sky, pairing it with earth tones, such as olive green, squash yellow, and sage are always a great direction to go in when it comes to bedrooms. Who would have thought a name like Stormy Weather could bring a peaceful and tranquil vibe to rooms?
Fashion designer David Tlale creates this maxi dress with the inspiration dreamed up from the aftermath of a volcano eruption. Sounds pretty intense, yet this gown shows much restraint and poise. The combinations of Stormy Weather, captain gray, acorn yellow, and taupe are hauntingly beautiful.
