It’s time for more color therapy with the second installment of Shutterstock’s Pantone Project. This week’s swatch to watch is Rhapsody. This gray-toned purple hue evokes a poetic bohemian spirit with touches of the celestial. Although muted, Rhapsody provides a sophisticated tone that pairs well with greens, as well as more structured patterns and styles. Use it to present contrasts like floppy boho hats and bell bottoms at a rock show, or a striking sunset in Spain.

Check out our color-curated inspiration collage and images below, then go back and read about our first featured swatch, Rose Smoke. Stay tuned as we continue to roll out further installments in this Fall Color Guide series!
