With every new year comes a fresh start – and new home decor trends. PANTONE has recently unveiled its top 10 colours for Spring 2017, so I decided to start this new year with a mood board featuring two of the top colours 2017: Primrose yellow and Flame.
“From colours that are bright and vivid to those that convey a sense of earthiness, PANTONE’s top 10 colours for Spring 2017 are reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature”.
Below you can see the top 10 colours for Spring 2017. Dedicating a single post to all these unique tones seemed a bit overwhelming, so I chose to split the content into a number of posts that I will share with you throughout the months of January and February.
For the first post of the year, I will focus on two bright, vivid and stimulating colours: Primrose Yellow and Flame. Combined together, they make me feel as if I’ve had just had a shot of blood orange juice! Do they make you dynamic and cheerful too?
Here is how Pantone describes these tones:
- PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow – “Primrose Yellow sparkles with heat and vitality. Inviting us into its instant warmth, this joyful yellow shade takes us to a destination marked by enthusiasm, good cheer and sunny days”
- PANTONE 17-1462 Flame – “A red-based orange, Flame, is gregarious and fun loving. Flamboyant and vivacious, this wonderfully theatrical shade adds fiery heat to the spring 2017 palette”
I actually like the idea of injecting touches of these two colours into the home. Not too many though. As you probably know by now, I gravitate more towards the neutral side than the colourful one when it comes to home decorating. But that doesn’t mean we can’t add a bit of vitality, confidence and passion into our homes, right? “ [Check out also my post on Colours at home: meaning and tips]. Here is a mood board for inspiration.
Next week, I will talk about Pale Dogwood, “a quiet and peaceful pink shade that engenders an aura of innocence and purity”. Following that, my last post this January will be on the unpretentious and warm Hazelnut colour.
Next month I will be focusing on greens (“greenery” and “kale”), mainly on outdoor living and how to bring greenery into your home.
