Official Pantone Fall 2016 Colors: Bodacious, Aurora Red and More!

More Colors From the Pantone Fall 2016 Color Report

In our first article covering the official colors of Fall 2016, we outlined four of our favorite tones from the official Fall 2016 Pantone color report. From the calm-yet-warm blue of Riverside to the exotic tangy feel of Spicy Mustard, the colors of Fall 2016 revolve around inviting blues and reds, with a mix of jewel tones and earth tones in between.

This article focuses on some of the more vibrant colors in the Fall 2016 Pantone palette. If you think that audacious color was left behind in Summer 2016, fear not – there’s a purple hue so “Bodacious” there was nothing else to name it!

From jewel tone reds to verdant greens to rich pastels, there are plenty of jazzy colors in the Fall 2016 Pantone color report to spice up your home design, wardrobe, or artistic accessories!

Let’s take a look at three more awesome colors from this fall’s Pantone palette.

More of Our Favorite Pantone Fall 2016 Colors

Bodacious (Pantone 17-3240)

Could there possibly be a better name for this funky purple shade than Bodacious? From lipstick and eye shadow to wardrobe accessories, bath design to accent color in your backsplash or tile design, Bodacious is an eye-popper and conversation starter extraordinaire!

A brand new shade in the Pantone rainbow, Bodacious is a huge hit in Fall 2016 wedding designs as well. From bridesmaids dresses (that are anything but dowdy!) to floral arrangements to print design, Bodacious is the “it” color of the fall for brides-to-be looking to make a real statement.

Aurora Red (Pantone 18-1550)

From the undertones of pink and amethyst of Bodacious, we turn to the confident ruby of Aurora Red. Aurora Red is bold and flattering, and was used with enormous success on the Fall 2016 style runways in dresses, accessories and handbags.

For home designers, Aurora Red is a dream come true – a red tone bold enough to strike the eye, but sensual and pleasant enough to not “throw off” an entire space. Try Aurora Red as a winning color for seating furniture, accent walls in living spaces, and in tasteful amounts in your home kitchen design (after all, red does stimulate the appetite!).

Lush Meadow (Pantone 18-5845)

Expecting a soft pastel green? Surprise! Lush Meadow wows the eye with a rich emerald tone that borders slightly on a blue-green hue. Like the undertones of amethyst in Bodacious and ruby in Aurora Red, Lush Meadow offers a gorgeous jewel tone to accent your Fall 2016 wardrobe.

Lush Meadow is also a brilliant choice for accessory pieces in your kitchen space (to evoke the freshness of green vegetables and plants) or as an accent wall in your living space or bedroom.
