Today we share the Pantone Colors that will be trending in 2018 presented by International Home + Housewares Show, Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman. This time, the institute already let us know which are the color trends 2018! Known as “global color authority”, the Pantone Color Institute announces every year which colors will be the ultimate trends.
“Metallics we know are classic, but they have really moved over into neutrals,” Eiseman said. She also predicts a continued infatuation with iridescence, since “the human eye can absolutely not avoid” anything pearlized or translucent, and being intrigued by shimmering.
Another standout trend will include a movement to intense colors rather than pastels .”Intense colors seem to be a natural application of our intense lifestyles and thought processes these days,” she said.
Ready to start color scheming for 2018? Read on for the eight palettes you can expect color and design trends to see next year.
Verdure: Vegetal colors like Celery are combined with berry-infused purples and eggshell blue, symbolic of health, in this palette.
Playful: Think “Minions.” Bright yellow, lime popsicle, and all other things fun come together for this color scheme. “People need to stop and smile,” said Eiseman.
Resourceful: This palette is made up of complementary blue and orange colors. “This is quite an interesting color combination,” said Eiseman. “It combines warm and cool tones that you just can’t avoid looking at it.”
Discretion: Playful’s alter ego. Subtle hues such as offer a new sense of strength. “Pink has developed more power than ever before,” said Eiseman.
Far-fetched: With warm, earthy hues such as Cornsilk Yellow blending with rosy tones, this palette “reaches out and embraces many different cultures,” said Eiseman.
Intricacy: A palette of neutral metallics (aka, the “new neutrals”) with accents of dramatic Holly Berry Red and yellow Sulfur. Pops of colour mixed with metallic highlights add glamour.
Intensity: This is an eclectic mix of deep, bold colours that evokes a sense of strength, power and sophistication, all balanced with black and gold. It’s all about drama!
TECH-nique: Bright turquoise, pink and purple colors anchored with Brilliant White and Frosted Almond nod to technology. This palette is all about hues “that seem to shine from within,” said Eiseman.
Pantone has not revealed the color of 2018 yet, but after all these trends we can already imagine what is coming.
