Upcoming Spring Colors - Trends to introduce to your home
Every year in the Spring, the color palette changes. Trends come and go based around these colors, and we tend to shift our home decor, furniture, and overall design themes as a result. It’s incredible, the amount of influence something as simple as a color palette can have, but it also makes a huge statement as to what we find appealing at any given time.
This year, of course, is no different. Pantone has been the standard for upcoming color trends for years. They release a ‘color of the year’ that defines trends for 365 days at a time. But, they also release color palette predictions based on seasons.
For the upcoming Spring season, it's all about getting back to the natural beauty that surrounds us in different ways. Spring is a time for vibrancy, and appreciating nature. Pantone's upcoming Spring colors absolutely reflect those moods. They're taking a page from Mother Nature's book with colors like Pale Dogwood, Greenery, and Niagara. More subdued and familiar tones like Kale, Hazelnut, and Lapis Blue also make the cut, blending the natural coloring surrounding us with comfortable items we're familiar with.
What better time to appreciate the beauty of the natural world than in a blooming, flourishing Spring? Niagara will lead the color palette as the 'it' color for the season. It's denim-like blue reflects an idea of relaxation, comfort, and familiarity. All of the great colors that make the 'top ten' list for the season are designed to do exactly the same. So, as you take a look around you this Spring, and try to decide which color palette to focus on for your home. Take a page from Pantone's book, to select on trend poufs, picture frames, rugs, throws and other decorative pieces that reflect these color palettes. Not only will you be on trend, but nature's color palette will find its way into your home!
