Where Do All the Colors Come From?

Where do all the colors come from?
    Who makes up colors and then gives them names?  I'm aware of the Pantone color system and know that every year they choose some new colors which designers use to create their sensations. 
   "The Pantone Color Matching System is largely a standardized color reproduction system. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to the Pantone system to make sure colors match without direct contact with one another."
    So what colors do you love right, now? I am fascinated with the color Rhapsody.

    I found some sights around town that seemed to fit the color. Isn't color amazing when you open your eyes to it's treasures?

    Passed this mailbox on my way and had to back up to get a little shot. Is this Rhapsody in Mail?

    One of my students looked so lovely in this color playing at the piano. Perhaps she is playing a rhapsody, I can't remember.


      A recent purchase of a children's book made all the colors come alive.  How about Tangerine Tango or Pillow Purple?

  There is so much more than red, yellow, and blue. We live in a world of variations and subtleties.
