Pantone Fall 2017 New York Color Series: 5 Great Pairings
In our previous article, we previewed the “New York” set of colors in the Pantone Fall 2017 series.
Themes of individuality, warmth and classic shades permeate the collection. Bold colors like Grenadine and Marina jump out between bright neutrals Butterum and Autumn Maple, while the gorgeous Navy Peony begs to work with intriguing shades like Ballet Slipper and Golden Lime.
For those who missed it, here is the full list of 10 colors in the Pantone Fall 2017 New York series:
- PANTONE 17-1558 Grenadine
- PANTONE 19-1725 Tawny Port
- PANTONE 13-2808 Ballet Slipper

It’s a balanced yet unconventional mix of 3 reds, three blues, a green and 3 neutral/gray tones. The balance provided by Neutral Gray and the brown neutrals give design enthusiasts plenty of color combinations to play with, and the rich deeper tones like Tawny Port and Shaded Spruce hearken back to the jewel tones that spiced up Pantone’s Fall 2016 color palette.
But which color combinations did we immediately fall in love with for the fall of 2017? We’ve pored over the possibilities and come up with a list of 5 color tandems that we think will liven up your autumn design.
We played a bit of a game with the color combinations to make it more interesting: we had to use all 10 colors in the Fall 2017 New York palette, and each color could only be used once. So we ended up with 5 unique color combinations that showcased the entire color collection.
Of course, some design choices (especially home design, kitchen and bath design) are much more difficult choices than others – so make sure you consult an award-winning expert before you jump into those decisions!
