Shutterstock Pantone Color Inspiration Fall 2012

Hello, fellow color lovers! This week’s burst of color magic brings us to the fourth installment in the Shutterstock Pantone Project, and the next Swatch to Watch: Titanium. We’re talking far more than a transitional metal on the periodic table with corrosion-resistent properties; as a swatch, Titanium is a sleek and elegant hue, with a touch of rock-n’-roll attitude. Pair it with any of the other trending Fall fashion colors for instant style with an edge.

Representing the perfect cool gray, Titanium adds a modern touch to interiors, fabrics, and even cosmetics. Take your personal style up a notch by adding some Titanium eyeshadow to your makeup palette, or Titanium suede for your accessories.

Check out our color-curated inspiration collage below, then be sure to circle back to our other experiments, featuring Rose Smoke, Rhapsody, and Pantone‘s particular eye-catcher: Ultramarine Green. And stay tuned as we continue further installments in our Fall Color Guide Series!
