Looking Forward: 2017’s Most Popular Color Palettes

Kermit the frog would be green with envy over the newest Pantone color of the year. For 2017 the shade that stylists and interior designers will use for inspiration is none other then “greenery” – A shade that can be found all around us in the natural world. As trends in interior design move toward a fusion of transitional living spaces and organic influences it’s no surprise that the newest color of the year is a vibrant beautiful shade of green that evokes the idea of the outdoors, renewal, and rebirth. Greenery is fresh it is not like the deeper jewel tone or light pastel greens of yesteryear it is instead a vibrant earthy color that reminds plugs in people to stop and sniff the roses. So what are some of the color palettes that an interior designer could use for inspiration in 2017? Metallics. A fusion of bright vibrant greenery with metallic shades across the spectrum is sure to be a popular trend in 2017. Think beautiful green accent walls complemented by bronze or polished chrome light fixtures. Beautiful green accent rugs or throw blankets can be paired with modern metals to create rooms that feel at once opulent and organic. Mixing metallics with shades of greenery is the perfect way to keep her home from looking too much like the inside of a forest there is a human presence here – it’s just more stylish than ever before. Jewel tones. Along with the beautiful new shade that you can expect to see everywhere in 2017, greenery, a general trend toward jewel tone colors is on the rise. Color blocking, traditionally seen on clothing and occasionally on linens, has now made its way onto the walls. Expect to see jewel tone shades in colorblocked patterns on walls and even the window fixtures. Neutrals.  Even though spring green is a vibrant shade, it can become a neutral in a properly balanced room. Pair bright green with other earthy tones of soft yellow, warm tans and sands, or soft grays and browns. Organic, natural hues continue to be a growing trend in 2017. One great benefit to going neutral? The colors can last through future trends. Whether you opt to revitalize a space with fresh and modern metallics, rich and sophisticated jewel tones, or an array of neutral shades, incorporate vibrant greenery into your color palette when decorating in 2017.
