I was a little bit surprised, but love this name for a colour! Pantone has developed and named a colour after a movie character! Say welcome to Minion Yellow, from the movie ” Despicable Me”.

Let me first clarify: “What is this Pantone-thing we talk of some times?”

It is an International standardised system for matching colours, mostly used in specifying printing inks. This way you can specify a specific colour for a project and everyone world-wide will know what code to use to generate the exact same colour. Recently we wrote a blog about this year’s Pantone colour of the year: Masala. (A colour we don’t particularly like…)

However, I am sure there will now be many new children’s rooms with Minion Yellow as an accent colour. The wall in this room is just amazing:

So if you want to make sure you have the same exciting yellow throughout your home, give Minion Yellow a go!

Happy painting & decorating,
