Pantone's Toasted Almond

Toasted Almond is a “sun-tanned neutral” and “brings balance to the coolness of the spring/summer 2015 color range,” according to Pantone. Toasted Almond offers comfort and warmth, is timeless and versatile, and is an organic shade that “speaks to authenticity and all that is natural.”
