We Found the Pantone Colors That Match These 10 Celebs Perfectly
If there’s one thing that makes the world go ‘round, it’s definitely color, and lots of it! And there’s no disputing Pantone as the king of all shades bright and beautiful. Whether you’re a fashion designer, interiors buff or just a color nerd, there’s a shade to match your every fancy. You can now even purchase your own personal Pantone makeup and, according to the New York Post, swatches. In honor of this quirky news (treat yo’ self), here’s a list of our favorite celebrities and the Pantone swatches we think best match their personality.
1. Khloe Kardashian, Rhapsody: The dictionary defines rhapsody as “an enthusiastic or ecstatic expression of feeling,” and this enthusiasm and zest for life defines Khloe. She’s been able to keep positive and real, despite her life being on display at pretty much every second of the day. In music, the word means that the score has a free-flowing structure, which also fits the Kardashian clan’s most unpredictable member. (photo via Jerod Harris/Getty)
Chrissy Teigen, CayenneThis mom-to-be is a pretty obvious choice for a food-related word, but it’s that spice that really makes Chrissy the perfect fit for Cayenne. To wit: That’s her, letting loose at a Burger Bash this year. A lot of celebrities would just shudder at the word burger, but Chrissy is having the time of her life. Bonus: Her mom’s name is Pepper!

Rihanna, Radiant OrchidMaybe it’s because she single-handedly brought on the purple lipstick trend, but shades of purple always bring thoughts of RiRi. It’s the color of royalty, after all, and radiant just connotes light and star power emanating from her at every turn. Plus, it’s fitting that this shade was once the coveted Pantone Color of the Year — only the best for Rihanna. (Photo via Christopher Polk/Getty)
Blake Lively, MimosaThis one-time Color of the Year makes you think of happy, bubbly times with laughter, light and smiles. And there’s no one that embodies that better than this California girl. This dazzling yellow Gucci dress that she wore to the premiere of her film Savages in 2012 just proves how effervescent this A-Lister is. (photo via Stephen Lovekin/Getty)
5. Lena Dunham, Potter’s Clay: This shade is reminiscent of the ‘70s vibe pulled from the spring and fall 2016 runways, and it’s also a perfect fit for Ms. Dunham: a little out there, a little offbeat, but totally still on trend. Lena herself is rocking shades of the ‘70s here, which, when combined with her IDGAF attitude, makes her exactly like this earthy yet offbeat color. (photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
Taylor Swift, Titanium:Kayne episodes one and two). But we also love how Titanium signifies unbreakable strength, which TSwift has somehow already conquered in her mid-20s. (photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
7. Olivia Palermo, Faded Denim: True, she loves to wear a lot of blues and denim, but part of the reason O.P. is representative of this shade is her cool, casual style. A pair of faded jeans is a trustworthy staple you can confidently rock, whether it’s to the grocery store or on a date, and that’s the way Olivia always looks: confident and relaxed.

8. Miley Cyrus, Bodacious: Look up bodacious in the dictionary and you’ll find, “audacious in an admirable way” next to a picture of one Ms. Miley Cyrus. It’s okay to be shocked by her occasionally and still admire her for her undeniable confidence. She’s a chameleon that keeps you on your toes, whether you want to be there or not. The soft purple-y hue is the same as her personality, too: daring and limit-pushing, yet comfortable at the same time. (photo via Dave Kotinsky/Getty)
Olivia Munn,: This Pantone shade goes to Olivia Munn. It reminds us of her 2014 Met Gala gown, but also it’s hers because it’s happy, slightly dorky and fun all at the same time, just like Olivia herself, who has been known for her quirky characters like Sloan on The Newsroom. Minion Yellow looks good on you, girl! (photo via Larry Busacca/Getty)
10. Amy Schumer, Sangria: This isn’t just because Amy is a known wine lover, but also because she’s just about as real as a person can be (case in point, this picture of her handing off her shoes before her acceptance speech at this year’s Critic’s Choice Awards). A little tart, a little sweet but always fun — Amy reminds us of a refreshing glass of the good stuff. (photo via Kevin Winter/Getty)
Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
