Pantone’s Colour Predictions For 2017, Part 1

Good Morning!

So over the last few weeks, we have been talking about interior styles, so if you were in any doubt beforehand, I really hope that you have found your style now.

Following on from that, we want to look at colour palettes. Pantone have released their “Colour of the Year,” over the last few years, but last year they announced 2 colours. Will they announce 3 this year??? To get the ball rolling, they have announced 9 colour predictions for 2017. Over the next few weeks, we are going to take a look at these colours and how they can be implemented….

Day Dreaming

This palette is following on from last years colours, which are intended to evoke a light and airy feel, contrasting to the stress of daily life. Pantone would suggest the addition of pale yellow and green to last years pale pink and powder blue.

At Ease

At lease is just a step on from Day Dreaming, adding more grey tones for a more sophisticated feel.

Native Instincts

So, this one is a little bit outside our comfort zone. Native Instincts is all about homogeneous design where artefacts and culture are combined. Smoky purples are mixed with deep reds and earthy tones.

In our next newsletter, we’ll be taking a look at Florabundant, Acquired Taste and Forest Bathing. Can you figure out what these palettes will have in store?
