Near the end of each calendar year, Pantone releases its predictions for the colors the world will be loving in the next year. Pantone’s color predictions tend to shape the way the world of design operates, both in fashion and home decor. I have a few favorites from Pantone’s picks for Spring of 2018. I wanted to share them with you and to give you some tips on how to incorporate my favorite Pantone colors into your own home.
Pantone’s choice for Color of the Year for 2018 is a bold, purple color. People either love or hate this saturated tone; there aren’t many people sitting on the fence. I happen to love this cool toned purple, and I am looking forward to finding ways to incorporate it this year.
In addition to a chosen Color of the Year, Pantone has also released a few color palettes for Spring. While the palette leans heavily toward bright tones, this sophisticated neutral really caught my eye. It is has just the right amount of warmth that the gray doesn’t look dreary.
Blooming Dahlia is a color that has the potential to go really right or really wrong in your home. The secret to making it work is to combine it with other warm colors and finishes to prevent the coral shade from looking childish.
Despite the name, this light blue is not just for little boys’ bedrooms! I love this classic blue for so many uses, from the ceiling of your balcony to the cabinetry in your kitchen!
In addition to the regular Spring palette, Pantone also chooses a Classic Color Palette for Spring. Of the four colors in that palette, I think Sailor Blue is my favorite. It is a rich navy tone that just looks expensive.
