Using Pantone Forecast 2003 Home Furnishings Colors to Tint B&W Images

These are examples of a B&W 35mm negative colored with the Pantone Forecast for 2003 Home Furnishings colors. To the left is Connections Hunter Green. Above is Diversity Palace Blue, and a combination of Diversity Lipstick Red and Mineral Yellow. They demonstrate the potential for creating art prints harmonized with interior design. The main current limitation is my lack of hardware and software to assure accurate color renditions. But in such images, the actual base color is just part of a smooth gradient of colors from black to white. "Hunter Green" actually appears in only a small area of the image on the left.
