This is old news. This is dated.
Or is it?
Hunter green and brass...
We had this color combination way back when, in the 70’s I believe, and even beyond, before the gray and mauve years of the 80’s.
But it is ever so appealing.
And sometimes, reinventing something old and familiar or even just seeing it again after being separated from it for a while can make it desirable and fresh and new all over again.
Doing hunter green and brass with white, instead of other competing jewel tones or darker muddy colors makes it ever so new.
A few touches of black don’t hurt either.
Take a look...
Okay, they don’t call it citrine. This is the one that comes closest to what I think Citrine is. Canary Yellow. It’s got that hint of lime in it. Nice.
Hunter Green, however, needs to soak in a little bit. It needs to steep and mature and grow. We need to be a little more removed from Emerald, 2013's Color of the Year. (Yep, I had that one predicted in 2011. ;-)
I’m betting this one, Hunter Green, is 2016's color of the year. 2015 is still a tough call :-)
