Autumn in New York: A Pantone Fall 2017 Color Preview

Autumn in New York: A Pantone Fall 2017 Color Preview

Pantone has released two separate Fall 2017 color previews: one for New York and one for London.

Each side of the Atlantic has a color palette for its own cosmopolitan city, and home designers, fashion designers, and artisans in general are loving the flexibility.

Grenadine may be the breakout star of the Pantone Fall 2017 New York color collection.
Grenadine may be the breakout star of the Pantone Fall 2017 New York color collection.

This article focuses on the “New York” palette of the Pantone Fall 2017 color preview. If we had to pick one word to describe the collection, it would be eclectic. Baby pink, bright blue and luscious red pop out of an assemblage of more conventional autumn colors. Gray and a few neutrals/browns make their presence felt, and there’s a particularly fun shade of green in the mix to continue the “Greenery” trend as Pantone’s Color of the Year 2017.

We’ll take a closer look at the assortment of Pantone Fall 2017 colors in the New York palette as the next several weeks pass. For now, let’s take a look at a few overarching trends of the New York color design palette for Fall 2017, courtesy of Pantone.

Navy Peony might be the richest, most versatile dark blue Pantone has selected in years.

Pantone Fall 2017 Color Trends (New York)

1. These colors aren’t shy.

Fall colors tend to naturally be more muted than spring palettes in years past. While that’s still the case in a battle of Spring 2017 and Fall 2017 in Pantone’s world, this New York color palette isn’t running away from anybody.

Whereas Fall 2016 relied a bit more on jewel tones and darker neutrals, the New York Pantone Fall 2017 color palette is full of stand-alone options. Even the more traditional brown neutrals add a bit of pop – the nutty Butterum (Pantone 16-1341) and reddish Autumn Maple (Pantone 17-1145) are more than capable of holding their own.

Butterum is one of the warm brown neutrals that helps pull Pantone's Fall 2017 New York collection together.

2. Navy and gray continue to be autumn mainstays.

Navy Peony is a major favorite of ours in this year’s Fall collection of Pantone colors. This bold shade of navy blue (Pantone 19-4029) is almost bright in appearance (is that possible?). Unlike other, more muted dark blues, Navy Peony dares you to jazz up your fall color design and pair it with cheery colors like Ballet Slipper and Golden Lime (Pantone 16-0543).

Meanwhile, Neutral Gray (Pantone 17-4402) is the gray shade that pulls this unique group together.

3. We love the reds in Fall 2017 (especially Grenadine).

It’s a pretty eclectic color palette for Fall 2017 in New York, but we predict the runaway hit of the season will be Grenadine (Pantone 17-1558). This dynamic red stands out from the crowd, like a chic red outfit in a room filled with black dresses.

Grenadine is paired with 2 other colors on the red spectrum. First there’s the rich Tawny Port (Pantone 19-1725), a deep near-purple wine shade. Nearly the polar opposite of Tawny Port is the baby pink Ballet Slipper (Pantone 13-2808), which at first glimpse almost appears out of place in this collection. Still, this pink is healthy enough to pair well with Navy Peony and the neutrals in this collection.

Pantone Spring 2017 Color Trends: Kale, Hazelnut [Part 5 of 5]

Pantone Spring 2017 Colors: Kale and Hazelnut Take Us Back to Nature

In the end, it’s all about natural balance. The first 4 parts of our 5-part series on the wonderful Pantone Spring 2017 color design palette brought a bit of everything – from punches of pink, orange and yellow to bright greens and blues. Whether cool or warm, 8 of the 10 Spring 2017 Pantone colors are full of vibrant optimism and life.

Our final two featured colors bring the entire Pantone Spring 2017 color series together. Branching from the “return to nature” theme indicated by Greenery, Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year, our final two featured colors bring natural shades into the palette and balance it perfectly.

Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: Kale and Hazelnut bring us back to nature.

Kale (18-0107 TCX) isn’t just for the salad course anymore. From architectural design to wardrobe, home design to garden design, the kale craze has officially resonated with Pantone for Spring 2017. And the search for the perfect neutral to balance the Pantone Spring 2017 color design palette ends with Hazelnut (14-1315 TCX), a warm taupe that pairs well with virtually any color of the season.

If this is your first look at our 5-part Pantone Spring 2017 series, here is the full list of Spring 2017 Pantone colors, along with their TCX designations and the order in which we will feature them:

Let’s take a look at both colors individually in the final installment of our 5-part series on the Spring 2017 Pantone color collection. 

Kale: A Dark, Leafy Green Full of Design Value

As a darker shade of green, Kale has to be explored to be appreciated. At first glance, it appears to be a drab green-gray – don’t make that mistake. Kale expresses a natural beauty found in plants, forests and gardens. Just as dark green vegetation signals an abundance of nutrients, the dark green of Kale signals a rich variety of design opportunities.

Using Kale in your home design is a great way to bring a natural feel into where you live. If you don’t want to work with neutrals, Kale is a great substitute to pair against many of the brighter colors of Spring 2017 (Primrose Yellow, Pale Dogwood and others). It also signals an invitation to bring more plant life into your home, in the form of mosses, ferns and hanging plants.

Hazelnut: The Warm, Nutty Neutral That Balances Spring 2017

While other colors may be more “exciting” in the Spring 2017 collection, none of them pair universally quite like Hazelnut. This “nutty neutral” is an astute selection by Pantone, as its innate warmth works far better with the bright shades of Spring 2017 than most others. From a broader perspective, Hazelnut also continues the trend of intriguing neutrals in design that began late in 2016.

Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: Hazelnut is a warm, nutty neutral that balances the collection.

Put Hazelnut virtually anywhere in your home design. That’s not an overstatement. Neutrals aren’t relegated to a secondary role in home color design anymore, and the natural feel of this shade works beautifully on anything from wall paint to furniture, throws and rugs to bath tile. Sprinkle in some pops of bold, natural color, and you’re guaranteed a custom kitchen or bath design that will last.

Of all the Pantone Spring 2017 colors, Hazelnut has the best chance of creating a lasting effect in wardrobe design. After all, a warm neutral pairs with virtually any color scheme. The reason Hazelnut stands above past Pantone neutral selections (Warm Taupe, Iced Coffee, etc.) is its versatility – the ability to be warm while sitting in the background as a secondary color.

Pantone Spring 2017 Color Trends: Lapis Blue, Flame [Part 2 of 5]

Pantone Spring 2017 Colors: Lapis Blue, Flame Are Bold Choices

In Part 1 of our 5-part series on the fantastic Spring 2017 Pantone Color Trend selections, we covered the cool, versatile blue of Niagara and the flowery, poppy Primrose Yellow.

While Niagara and Primrose Yellow were light, “springy” shades that provide a world of options for both home design and fashion design, our 2 highlighted colors for this piece are quite a bit bolder. Used properly, each color (or both in tandem) can create a head-turning, stunning visual that leaves a lasting impression.

Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: Lapis Blue and Flame are bold, beautiful colors.
Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: Lapis Blue and Flame are bold, beautiful colors.

Lapis Blue (19-4045 TCX) and Flame (17-1462 TCX) are full of vibrant energy and life, while staying true to Pantone’s overall Spring 2017 theme of natural colors. The rich blue (Lapis Blue) and coral (Flame) tones are certainly two of the more eye-popping selections in the “Spring 2017 Ten” Pantone selected.

In case you’re interested, here is the full list of Spring 2017 Pantone colors, along with their TCX designations and the order in which we will feature them:

Let’s take a closer look at Lapis Blue and Flame, two of the ten colors chosen by Pantone as their colors for Spring 2017.

Lapis Blue: A Bold But Steady Anchor Color

We all have an instinct to base our lifestyle’s color design in a dependable shade or two. Spring 2017, according to Pantone, is an opportunity for you to try new things and branch out. A great way to bridge that gap and put a bold spin on an “anchor color” is the rich, radiant Lapis Blue.

Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: The bold but steady Lapis Blue.
Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: The bold but steady Lapis Blue.

Unlike Niagara, there is nothing sedate about Lapis Blue. Rather, one can assume it takes its name from the semi-precious Lapis Lazuli – a strong blue stone that signifies truth and enlightenment. It’s rare to find a color that is so rich and yet so dependable in color design. As such, Lapis Blue is a versatile shade we could easily recommend for nearly every room in your home.

The same basic principles apply for wardrobe design. Lapis Blue has the ability to be a staple, “base” color from which to design the rest of your Spring 2017 attire. It also has enough jewel-tone richness to be the statement color against other, more sedate Spring 2017 Pantone selections (such as the neutral Hazelnut).

Flame: A Coral Shade That Demands Attention

The name Pantone assigns to each color in its spectrum is often perfectly appropriate. Flame, a seductive, punchy shade of red-orange, is no exception. Trending closer to orange than pink, Flame’s allure is evident from first glance, and the color is ready-made for a party, night on the town, or beach-themed interior design.

Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: Flame is a coral that demands attention.

The crisp, bold nature of Flame lends itself perfectly to accents in quality home design. Home owners and designers looking for a “punch” in a sedate room design will find it using flame in throws, pillows, wall art and other decor accessories. Flame also makes a statement in beach homes, homes closer to a tropical or sunny environment, or those looking for a truly theatrical touch.

On the runway or in your wardrobe, Flame is quite the opposite. It demands such attention in fashion that it certainly is NOT a secondary or “accessory” color; rather, Flame will stand out in a crowded room. If you’re looking for an extroverted outfit that demands to be noticed, add Flame into your Spring 2017 wardrobe design – designers like Rag & Bone already have!

Pantone Spring 2017 Color Trends: Niagara, Primrose Yellow [Part 1 of 5]

Pantone Spring 2017 Colors: Primrose Yellow, Niagara Step Forward

We reported recently that Pantone, the world’s leading authority on color matching and design, named Greenery as its Pantone 2017 Color of the Year. A spring green, Greenery (15-0343 TCX) signaled a fresh start to a new year, as well as Pantone’s optimistic outlook for the 2017 year in color and design.

It remained to be seen, however, just how “sunny” that outlook would be all year round. Well, if the Pantone Spring 2017 Color Trends Report is any indication, we’re in for a bright and beautiful year of color!

Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: Niagara and Primrose Yellow lead the way!
Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: Niagara and Primrose Yellow lead the way!

The 10 colors selected as the official Spring 2017 Pantone colors are bright, cheery, and based largely in the natural world around us. From sky blues to floral yellows and pinks, nutty neutrals to verdant greens (including Greenery itself), the color palette for Spring 2017 is one of our favorites in recent memory.

Perfect for home design AND the runway, Spring 2017’s color design is perfect for anyone looking to inject a healthy dose of sunshine, blossoms and freshness into his or her home design, personal wardrobe, and bold artistic choices.

Design Your Lifestyle will be taking a 5-article approach to the Spring 2017 Pantone color design selections, giving the spotlight to two gorgeous hues in each article. Today, we’re diving in headfirst with two colors predicted to lead the charge into springtime – the relaxing blue Niagara, and the sunlit shade Primrose Yellow.

In case you’re wondering, here is the full list of 10 shades named in the Pantone Spring 2017 Color Trends Report:

Niagara: A Blue Hue That Signals Fresh, Clear Skies

Niagara evokes memories of Riverside (17-4028 TCX), a Summer 2016 Pantone color selection that brought to mind running water, bright denim and clear, blue skies. Selected by many color design experts as the “leading” color of the Spring 2017 Pantone palette, Niagara is comfortable and easy on the eyes – a key reason why home designers and fashion designers alike have praised it for its versatility.

Pantone Spring 2017 color trends: Niagara is a lush shade of denim blue.

In terms of home design, Niagara functions beautifully as both an accent color and the core color of virtually any room. Though sitting rooms, sun rooms and baths come to mind, Niagara can be utilized effectively as an accent color in kitchens, dining rooms and bedrooms as well.

While many as quick to call Niagara a “denim blue”, closer inspection will reveal a slightly bolder blue. This trait has made Niagara a hit on fashion design runways, incorporated in everything from print jackets to evening gowns. However you incorporate this fresh shade of blue into your home or personal design, Niagara is a smart (and long-lasting) choice for a Spring 2017 update.

Primrose Yellow: A Beautiful, Sunny Bloom

Many of us know the song, “The Yellow Rose of Texas”. Well, if it happened to be Primrose Yellow, we understand what all the fuss is about. Evocative of daffodils and early morning sunshine, Primrose Yellow is a warm dash of color across the Spring 2017 runways and home design exhibits.

Warmer than a conventional yellow but not quite a golden jewel tone, Primrose Yellow is a brilliant accent color for home designers. Set against a Spring 2017 neutral like Hazelnut, or a strong blue like Niagara or Lapis Blue, Primrose Yellow can provide a “pop” of color without appearing too pastel or dainty. A kitchen or bath in need of a spark will fare well with this shade as a new accent.

In terms of fashion design, Primrose Yellow has been utilized to great effect with other warmer colors in the Spring 2017 Pantone palette. Audacious designers have paired it with Island Paradise to create a floral, tropical feel in their wardrobe designs. Again, pairing Primrose Yellow with a denim blue (like Niagara) or a nutty neutral (like Hazelnut) is a successful, stylish match.

Official Pantone Fall 2016 Colors: Dusty Cedar, Sharkskin, Airy Blue

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. We continued that trend with the “Bodacious” and audacious colors that “pop” this fall in the second segment of our Fall 2016 Pantone Color Report Overview.

Now, our third and final installment of colors from the Pantone Fall 2016 guide focuses on the three shades you can count on as “base” elements for your seasonal design. Whether you’re decorating and designing a kitchen or bath, looking for the building blocks of your autumn 2016 wardrobe, or looking for a background color for those autumn party and wedding invitations, these 3 are your go-to colors from this fall’s 2016 Pantone Color Report.

In case you missed it, here is your official “list of 10” on the Fall 2016 Pantone color report. The three tones we’ll be highlighting in this article are in bold.

• Riverside – Pantone 17-4028
• Airy Blue – Pantone 14-4122
• Sharkskin – Pantone 17-3914
• Aurora Red – Pantone 18-1550
• Warm Taupe – Pantone 16-1318
• Dusty Cedar – Pantone 18-1630
• Lush Meadow – Pantone 18-5845
• Spicy Mustard – Pantone 14-0952
• Potter’s Clay – Pantone 18-1340
• Bodacious – Pantone 17-3240

Dusty Cedar, Sharkskin and Airy Blue have little in common at first glance. But as we delve into their strong suits and properties, you’ll soon discover why these 3 very diverse colors are such “backbones” of this season’s color and style.

More of Our Favorite Pantone Fall 2016 Colors

Dusty Cedar – Pantone 18-1630

Dusty Cedar - Pantone Fall 2016 color report

Dusty Cedar is one of our favorite colors of this season, and easily one of the most intriguing. This rose tone is almost “foggy” in appearance, and exudes a base of warmth and sensuality without being bold and overbearing. A massive hit on the Fall 2016 runways, Dusty Cedar is an alluring shade for long coats, jackets, sweaters, and shoes.

As a base color in home design, Dusty Cedar is a smart and visually appealing choice for large furniture pieces (sofas, etc.), as well as wall paint (especially above white wainscoting).

Sharkskin – Pantone 17-3914

Sharkskin - Pantone Fall 2016 color report

As its name indicates, this isn’t a regular old shade of gray – Sharkskin comes with a built-in bite. Easily the most “pair-able” and practical of all the Fall 2016 Pantone colors, Sharkskin adds a sense of luster and sheen to gray, making it a home design and wardrobe design staple that doesn’t fade into the background.

Sharkskin is so appealing because even when its “season” moves on, it won’t go out of style. An opulent gray is always fashionable in a wardrobe or home design, especially in transitional kitchen design, subway tile and living space/bedroom decor.

Airy Blue – Pantone 14-4122

Airy Blue - Pantone Fall 2016 color report

A bit gentler than Riverside (the fellow shade of blue in the Fall 2016 Pantone Color Report), Airy Blue is precisely what you’d expect. Somewhere between sky blue and Carolina blue, this shade is reminiscent of a cloudless fall sky, with a slight crispness in the breeze.

Airy Blue pairs well with the earth tones in your home design, as it’s such a naturally occurring shade (think clear blue water and sky). Most blues aren’t as versatile as Airy Blue, and you’ll have fun seeing what you can mix-and-match with it in your home design and personal wardrobe.

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)

Bodacious Pantone Fall 2016 color report (Peter Salerno Inc.)

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)

Aurora Red Pantone Fall 2016 color report (Peter Salerno Inc.)

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)

Lush Meadow Pantone Fall 2016 color report (Peter Salerno Inc.)

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.

Fall 2016 Color Trends Report: Blues, Earth and Jewel Tones

Pantone Fall 2016 Color Trends Report Indicates Strength and Luxury

As with Summer 2016, each season’s palette of color trends is an indicator of where the design industry is headed (at least for the short term). And as always, world-class designers from every industry look to Pantone as the one source for forecasting the future of color.

Pantone brands itself as your guide for “accurate color communication”, and is the world’s foremost authority on accurate color matching and precision. Every year, Pantone releases its Official Colors for the year and for each season.

The Fall 2016 Pantone Color Report is here!
The Fall 2016 Pantone Color Report is here!

For Fall 2016, all indications point to a luxurious, strong palette of color. Unlike the bold, vivacious hues of Summer 2016, the Fall 2016 Pantone color trends report has a flair for the opulent. Color tones are more sedate than last season, but still exude the audacious, lush qualities of summer.

The Fall 2016 color trends palette is lush and “in your face”; an extension of the optimism put forth by the colors of your summer. Even the names of these colors (many of them new additions to the Pantone color system) embody strength and boldness: Sharkskin, Spicy Mustard, and Bodacious, to name a few!

Here is your official “list of 10” on the Fall 2016 Pantone color report:

• Riverside – Pantone 17-4028
• Airy Blue – Pantone 14-4122
• Sharkskin – Pantone 17-3914
• Aurora Red – Pantone 18-1550
• Warm Taupe – Pantone 16-1318
• Dusty Cedar – Pantone 18-1630
• Lush Meadow – Pantone 18-5845
• Spicy Mustard – Pantone 14-0952
• Potter’s Clay – Pantone 18-1340
• Bodacious – Pantone 17-3240

Blues and reds lead the charge into fall, with five total entries on the list. But don’t mistake these hues for sedate, staid offerings; each tone has an undertone of luxury and jewel-toned brightness that will spice up your personal style.

Whether it be a new take on your custom kitchen design or bath design, an update to your wardrobe, or any other design project you undertake, here are our 4 favorite colors in the Fall 2016 Pantone color report.

Fall 2016 Pantone Color Report: Our 4 Favorite Colors

Riverside (Pantone 17-4028)

One of the brand new colors in the Fall 2016 Pantone color report, Riverside has drawn high praise from color and design experts worldwide. Instantly adopted by iconic fashion designers like Gucci and Lacoste, Riverside seems to manage the impossible – bringing a warm, almost “sunny” disposition to a blue-gray hue.

Riverside (Pantone 17-4028)

Calm yet inviting, Riverside garners our vote for favorite new shade of Fall 2016. This is due largely in part to its capacity to be woven seamlessly into virtually any personal style, be it classic or contemporary, traditional or transitional. Riverside promises to be a shade of blue utilized in design for years to come.

Potter’s Clay (Pantone 18-1340)

It’s so rare to find a shade of red that works beautifully with the earth tones in your home or wardrobe, but Potter’s Clay is that rare exception. It evokes the idea of freshly polished, refined wood surfaces – a reddish-brown that’s anything but dull. Unlike a more subdued terra cotta shade, Potter’s Clay seems to have a natural “shine”, like a ray of sun glancing off the bark of a red maple leaf.

Potter's Clay (Pantone 18-1340)

We are choosing to typify Potter’s Clay as an extension of red, but this isn’t your average garnet hue. Obvious notes of cedar, burnt orange and autumn maple leaves set Potter’s Clay apart from the other reds in this fall’s color report.

Spicy Mustard (Pantone 14-0952)

Want an exotic complementary color to the base elements of your Fall 2016 color design? Spicy Mustard is our choice. Another brand new addition to the Pantone color spectrum, Spicy Mustard is exactly what its name suggests – a tangy burnt yellow hue that immediately catches the eye without detracting from the rest of your design.

Spicy Mustard (Pantone 14-0952)

Spicy Mustard was a “pop” on the runway for fashion designers in their Fall 2016 lines, successfully drawing focus without blurring geometric lines and elements. Like the brightest yellow leaves of the autumn season, look to Spicy Mustard as a wonderful design option – both in your wardrobe and as an accent color in kitchen, bath, and home decor accessories.

Warm Taupe (Pantone 16-1318)

Warm Taupe may not be the most “exciting” of hues in the Fall 2016 Pantone color report, but it provides the calm and balance that weaves the 10 colors together. This is a neutral that doesn’t fade into the background like its brethren, however. Whether used by itself or in combination with the richer colors of the season, Warm Taupe still demands attention.

Warm Taupe (Pantone 16-1318)

Alexander McQueen used Warm Taupe to dazzling effect on the runway, and home design specialists find its warm yet earthy hue a trustable focal point in custom designs. Warm Taupe is a timeless shade that will remind you of the cozy leather couch of your dreams or the most comfortable jacket you’ve ever owned.
