The 6 Pantone Neutral Colors That Dominate 2017 Design
Greenery might be the Pantone 2017 Color of the Year, and warm natural tones of pink and blue may stretch across the year in design. But in the story of the design year that is 2017, the main characters are all neutrals, and they’re playing for keeps.
Neutral tones have long been thought of as complementary colors – especially in home design palettes. 2017 has proven that taupes, browns, grays and off-whites can be the stars of your color design.
This trend doesn’t just apply to solid and conventional colors. Wood, tile, appliance, and muted metallic elements of your home design can also work within the “neutral” palette to great effect. Rather than dominant accent walls with loud colors, 2017 has let the neutral shades do the talking, leaving the brighter tones “pop” in accessories and decor.
With so many neutrals to choose from, which are the right choices for your next home design project? Obviously, we’d suggest turning to a world-renowned custom kitchen design and bath design team for assistance. But if you want a jumping off point, this is the article for you!
Below, you will find a list of the six core neutrals listed by Pantone in their Spring 2017 and Fall 2017 color reports. While great shades like Navy Peony could technically qualify, we’re opting to stay within the traditional definition of neutral colors.
From a myriad of brown and tan shades to one beautifully versatile gray, chances are you’ll find inspiration (and solutions) for your next design project within the six neutral colors on the list. As always, Pantone is an internationally recognized color matching system, so finding these colors virtually anywhere won’t be an issue!
