Now that April has begun, it’s time to set our sights toward spring and the color trends impacting home decor. Pantone’s Spring Color Report has 10 dazzling colors, and we gathered instances of each color to give inspiration on how to use them in your home.
Niagara is “Comfortable and dependable…the most prevalent color for spring 2017. Niagara is a classic denim-like blue that speaks to our desire for ease and relaxation.”
In contrast to Niagara, “Primrose Yellow sparkles with heat and vitality. Inviting us into its instant warmth, this joyful yellow shade takes us to a destination marked by enthusiasm, good cheer and sunny days.”
A beautiful jewel tone: “Strong and confident, this intense blue shade is imbued with an inner radiance.”
Flame is “a red-based orange… gregarious and fun loving. Flamboyant and vivacious, this wonderfully theatrical shade adds fiery heat to the spring 2017 palette.”
“Island Paradise is a refreshing aqua that calls to mind a change of scenery. A cool blue green shade that speaks to our dream of the great escape, Island Paradise is emblematic of tropical settings and our desire to unwind.”
A variation of blush pink, “Pale Dogwood is a quiet and peaceful pink shade that engenders an aura of innocence and purity. The unobtrusive Pale Dogwood is a subtle pink whose soft touch infuses a healthy glow.”
We last looked at how to incorporate Greenery into home decor back in December, when it was first announced as color of the year. It’s still going strong for spring, “illustrative of flourishing foliage, the fertile attributes of Greenery signals one to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.”
“Tropical and festive, Pink Yarrow is a whimsical, unignorable hue that tempts and tantalizes. Bold, attention getting and tempestuous, the lively Pink Yarrow is a captivating and stimulating color that lifts spirits and gets the adrenaline going.”
Along the lines of Greenery, Kale is “evocative of the great outdoors and a healthy lifestyle… another foliage-based green that conjures up our desire to connect to nature… And, just as we see in nature, this lush and fertile natural green shade provides the perfect complementary background to the more vibrant tones in the palette.”
“Rounding out the spring 2017 colors is Hazelnut, a key neutral for spring. This shade brings to mind a natural earthiness. Unpretentious and with an inherent warmth, Hazelnut is a transitional color that effortlessly connects the seasons.”
