Fall 2017 Color Trends

In nature, Fall is all about beautiful colors, so it’s only natural that we want to give our home a little spruce on the spectrum. Rather than taking cue from golden leaves and tawny pumpkins, we’re all about Pantone’s Fall 2017 color trends.

Just in-case you have been living under a trend-repelling rock, Pantone is a world renowned authority on color and has boffins working around the clock to pick out new colors and what they convey in color-critical industries. You may remember past Pantone colors of the year, such as ‘serenity’, or ‘greenery’, the Pantone 2017 color of the year.

So what exactly do the Fall 2017 color trends have in store for our homes?

Well, there’s tawny port (sounds yummy), copper tan (can we get it in spray form?) and shaded spruce (erm…what?). Without further confusing waffle, here’s the Fall 2017 color trends according to Pantone…

Pantone Color Of The Year 2017: Greenery

Home decor buffs will know all about the Pantone color of the year. But if you are new to the concept, here is it in a nutshell. Pantone is ‘the world-renowned authority on color’ and provides ‘the selection and accurate communication of color across a variety of industries’. To translate, Pantone basically selects the colors that are going to be the next big thing in home decor, fashion & advertising.

Greenery: The Color Of The Year 2017

pantone-color-of-the-year-2017-greenery-15-0343

The Pantone color of the year 2017 is greenery, a luscious bright green shade with a vibrant yellow edge. Keeping in theme with 2016’s colors of the year, greenery is all about escaping from the hustle and bustle of post-modern life.

Pantone describes greenery as, ‘ Illustrative of flourishing foliage, the fertile attributes of Greenery signals one to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate’.

This color literally screams Spring. A stark contrast to last years cool toned palette, Greenery quite literally represents its name. Although the hue may be frighteningly bright for those who prefer muted tones, a few splashes of this color of the year  2017 will bring an invigorating edge to your home.

Styling the Color Of The Year 2017 In Your Home

As this hue is bright, we recommend starting small. Inject pops of Greenery into your home with statement accessories. Uplift a plain, wooden dining table with a Greenery-hued table runner. Alternatively, transform a neutral toned sofa with bright green cushion covers and pair with matching place mats on coffee and lamp tables.

2017s Home Decor Trends: What To Look Out For

2016 has been a conglomeration of opposing zeitgeists when it comes to home decor trends. On one side of the scale, Scandinavian minimalism has had us craving clean whites and pops of marble. On the other extreme, the revival of 70s Bohemia has had us craving a rainbow of paisley prints, dream catchers and mandala wall hangs.

With the new year just around the corner, it’s time to embrace 2017s home decor trends. Ready to invest in the hottest trends? Here’s our ultimate guide into what to look out for.

Stone & Terracotta

Marble, step aside: there are some new natural materials on the block that are about to steal your crown! Using the current minimalist trend as inspiration, stone, granite and terracotta are a great way to add textures to your home whilst adhering to a neutral palette.

Stone and terracotta materials are a brilliant example of what experts and betting is decors next big thing: rustic minimalism. Less clinical and more homely than Scandinavian minimalism, we can expect to see more natural and textured fabrics and materials.

If your home already has a neutral, minimalist interior, give it a serious texture injection with one of our printed pillow covers. The floral embroidered pillow cover will add a homely vibe to a bedroom or living room that is overly clinical.

How To Style Citrus Tones In Your Home

Ah…citrus tones, you are like vegemite: we either love you or hate you. Punchy oranges, vibrant chartreuse and loud lime may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but there are beautiful ways to style these colors in your home without it looking like you live in a pack of highlighter pens.

Let’s call these colors our under-rated, little secret. Although they are not necessarily the most popular choice in home decor, if used in small quantities and styled in a certain way, they can produce an absolutely stunning effect!

Today we show you a plethora of bright and beautiful decor inspiration and show you how to style citrus tones in your home.

A Slight Splash Of Chartreuse

This room is a baby steps introduction into citrus colors. A monochrome and wood palette is a stunning backdrop for pops of beautiful chartreuse. The chartreuse pillows really reflect the foliage on the bedroom balcony and give the room an instant fresh feel. The neutral patterned rug and blanket juxtapose this crisp freshness stunningly, and give more of a vintage, homely vibe to the room.

The placement of the chartreuse embellishments is incredibly important. If you look at the photo, you will see that the chartreuse items are all at the same height, this ensures it looks streamlined, rather than messy.

Who knew storage areas could actually be a feature of your house? Although orange is a color that many fear when it comes to home decor, this storage area has gone all-out clementine! The result? Something surprisingly classy, Summer-y and nautical!

The beauty of this area is due to the clever combinations of colors. Icy mint is laid against sizzling orange walls, then is brought back down to earth by the addition of red, pink and yellow tones. Keeping this room to a very nautical theme by using seaside ‘props’ such as anchors, wicker baskets and ship wheels, ensures all of these crazy colors run together smoothly. Then there’s that very clever rug, which has a pattern that contains all the colors in the decor. Smart stuff!

Combine our saree border print table runner and our floral embroidered pillow cover for that striking color contrast and complimentary, Summery prints.

Lemon & Gray

Lemon and gray go together like lemons and pancakes! There is something so beautiful in the contrast between something very dull and something very vibrant! Can you imagine the living room above without yellow? It would be no where near as stylish! The pops of yellow in the artwork, cushions and table may be small in quantity, but they really give this room a ‘mod’ element.

Proving that other detailed elements can indeed be used with citrus colors, this decor cleverly brings in monochrome and grey scale prints to make it really retro chic! This room still looks classy and polished due to the large quantities of wood, white, grey and black. The decor has also been kept detailed and colorful solely around the sofa area. This ensures it doesn’t look to ‘busy’ and avoids any unsightly clashes.

Add some retro luxe to your living room by using our damask style table runner as a feature rug, then adding this print to the sofa with our damask pillow covers. Then add that gorgeous yellow pairing with out jacquard paisley pillow covers.

Vibrant Bohemian

Before I saw this living room, I never ever would have thought that a bright yellow sofa could look good. Enter the color clashers best friend: bohemian. Rather than adding citrus tones, this living room has toned down the bright yellow sofa by adding a plethora of bohemian Aztec prints. The printed cushions and complimented by an aqua cushion, which is, indeed, on the exact opposite side of the color wheel to the yellow. This marvelous clash, alongside the mish-mash of random textures is what makes this room quintessentially boho. In some ways, bohemian decor has no rules!

This color explosion remains stunning due to the plain,white walls, oaky floors and rustic, wooden furniture. Although this much color may not be the easiest look to pull off, if done right, it is undeniably gorgeous.

Add some serious bohemian prints to your floor with our exotic oriental table runner. Then add clashing boho prints to your sofa with our paisley leaf pillow cover.
