Pantone, the world's leading authority on color, is the go-to source for forecasting which colors will define home design, fashion, and other creative industries in the coming months. Pantone's choice for color of the year is regarded as the ultimate color trend forecast, but as we wait for this highly anticipated announcement, the color gurus at Pantone gave us an early peek at the coming year's predictions.
The report has 10 prominent hues (London Color Palette) that are projected to make a splash in the coming year, as well as five "core classics" that are timeless. The collection, which includes brilliant bright, delicate pastels, and earthy neutrals, depicts the tension between our need for peace and rest and our yearning for spontaneity and excitement, according to the article.
To create the proper balance between tranquility and excitement, mix and match colors from Pantone's spring and summer 2022 color trend predictions.
Colors that pop
Pantone's trend report's classic colors of red, yellow, and blue, create a lively, vintage mood. Make a bold statement with a vibrant red that connects us to the spontaneity of a spring garden or add a ray of hope with yellow that connects us to the spontaneity of a spring garden. The two warmer tones are tempered by a dazzling royal blue, which creates a lovely balance.
Easy-to-swap-in accessories and accent furniture will bring these lively hues to life against a backdrop of crisp white walls.
Chocolate brown, sandy beige, and mild grey are classic neutrals that never go out of style. Walls or furnishings in familiar tones that convey the soothing comfort of a warm, inviting beach or a creamy coffee color create a pleasant, inviting atmosphere in living rooms and entryways.
Apply dark grey to walls for a moodier vibe in bedrooms and other relaxing places or go for the clean simplicity of White to lighten things up.
Accent colors in soft, sweet pastels are charmingly playful. Pink from Pantone adds cozy warmth to bedrooms and living rooms, while bright blue looks crisp and refreshing in bathrooms and kitchens.
To avoid a too saccharine impact, use them in areas that receive a lot of natural light and combine plenty of natural textures such as woven textiles and wood furniture.
Nature-inspired colors of blue and green are also included in the palette forecast. To portray a sense of serenity and quiet, a cold, mid-tone blue replicates the color of frozen water. It's an excellent choice for creating a relaxing atmosphere in a living room or bedroom.
To highlight a focus on wellbeing, a soft, muted green was chosen, which works well in health-focused locations like kitchens, gym areas, or restrooms. Use a deep teal on the walls or cabinetry for added drama.
