Announcing Pantone’s 2017 Color Trends



Pantone has announced its choices for the Top 10 Colors for Spring 2017, these colors range from bright and vivid to earthy neutrals.  They are colors that remind us of ones that surround us in nature. "Reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature, our Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report evokes a spectrum of emotion and feeling. From the warmth of sunny days with PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow; to the invigorating feeling of breathing fresh mountain air with PANTONE 18-0107 Kale; and the desire to escape to pristine waters with PANTONE 14-4620 Island Paradise, designers applied color in playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope and transformation that we yearn for each Spring,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
                 
These are the colors that will be dominating all areas of design and decorating. And just like in 2016, we are seeing Blue as a prominent color.

Niagara- Pantone 17-4123 The most prevalent color for Spring is a denim-like blue that oozes the feelings of relaxation. This color reminds me of an old comfortable pair of jeans.

Lapis Blue- Pantone 19-4045 Drawing inspiration from the semi-precious stone Lapis Lazuli, Lapis is a deep intense blue. This is a bold and strong color and certainly be a bold color choice for your space.
