Spring/Summer 2017 sees a refocus on inspirational sources; we are rethinking and reassessing the world around us. As perspectives change we gain more confidence with color usage and in turn, engage with the effect color has on our surrounds. Taking inspiration from our 2017/18 trends we look to advances in experimental technology, celebrating the hidden beauty of data that lies at the heart of our computerized world. We also explore unknown grounds with an organic and warming theme that reference sunny climates. Feeding our desire to collect and curate our personal spaces we then gain a carefree approach and are tempted by eye-catching aesthetics. Finally focusing on a weightless minimalism that has a universally pure and contemporary atmosphere. These themes will come together to inspire new directions in color and here we share 5 key colors to discover for Spring/Summer 2017/18.

Experimental and positive in attitude, 0695 INDIAN NECKLACE references the digital world and explores both human and mechanical errors. Inspired by the Glitch trend this color celebrates digital imperfections, using them to inform designs and emphasize the artificial nature of our digital world. Introducing a human element to technology, this green has an acid undertone that is detached from natural or organic connotations. With a refreshing and modern feel, 0695 INDIAN NECKLACE can confidently lift your spaces into the now. Use in combination with the other saturated tones of the Glitch palette in kitchen spaces and children’s bedrooms for a dynamic and energized effect.

In contrast, 0941 GLOWING LANTERN references our direct connection to colors found in nature. From the Ground trend this tone has a glowing warmth that radiates throughout a space and brings a sense of sunshine to the inside. Desert-like landscapes inspire this rich sand yellow color and the tone offers a sense of comfort and refuge. Surround yourself with the lustrous heat of 0941 GLOWING LANTERN and combine this color with the other deep earthy shades of the Ground palette, which are inspired by the raw pigments extracted from the earth. This grouping is perfect for living rooms and bedrooms as it exudes an elemental glow that is sure to add warmth.

Appealing to our sweet tooth and magpie eye, 1069 PINK TOUCH embodies a carefree attitude with an indulgent edge. Part of the Candy trend this sugary shade has a joyful message that encourages a mix and match style. Inspired by sugared candy treats, this color is designed to catch the eye and deliver a note of positivity. Powdered and pale, 1069 PINK TOUCH can be used in combination with the other shades of Candy for an eclectic mix that encourages a playful approach to color. The milky undertones and soft finish of this tone creates the perfect option for updating kitchens and bathroom areas.

With an intriguing air, 0589 CESTETIAL HORIZON looks to reduce visual noise with a controlled aesthetic and striped back approach. Inspired by the X-ray trend, this color references the delicate forms we find in nature, but with purity that demands attention. Genderless and seemingly universal grayed blue adds clarity and a reassuring sense of precision within a space. Use in combination with a palette of cool neutrals for a contemporary update. 0589 CESTETIAL HORIZON can add a touch of clean modernity to your bedrooms and study areas for a current and refreshing outcome.

The dark alluring tone of 0536 SUBWAY strips away unnecessary elements to highlight the beauty of the structure of a space. Selected from the X-ray trend this color forms a clean and minimal palette that looks to intense monochrome combinations to reveal what is essential within your home. Referencing core architectural structures, the depth of 0536 SUBWAY acts as a strong and definitive dark tone. Black creates a sense of focus within rooms so use this tone in office areas and hallways in small amounts to highlight architectural details and create a sense of clarity.

0695 INDIAN NECKLACE, 0941 GLOWING LANTERN, 1069 PINK TOUCH, 0589 CESTETIAL HORIZON and 0536 SUBWAY are the five colors we see to be key for Spring/Summer 2017/18. These tones are taken from the 2017/18 trends Glitch, Ground, Candy and X-ray. The colors work across a variety of interior applications and can be used singularly or combined successfully as an all over palette for a space. These colors all offer something diverse and convey different moods and aesthetics that are on trend. Each color has the potential to add something innovative and exciting to your home, whether it is used in isolation or with our suggested complimentary tones.

Today’s mid century modern is a little cleaner than some decades ago with more neutral color palettes and stone accents as opposed to the bright and colorful combinations of the past. Clean and crisp and simply stunning.

Metal-

 

Metal Hues are so warm and go with so many things. How can you bring these colors into your home? You can either bring in actual metal to get you started or maybe a throw or how about a warm coppery color like Sun’s Rage on your walls in the Kitchen instead of that red? I did that in mine and it’s fabulous!
