Reset, Refresh, Revitalize…April means “to open” in Latin and signifies a blossoming time of year! With Earth Day upon us, what better time to look at some of the key colors trending this season that are inherent in nature and psychologically reinvigorating.
Three of the top ten Pantone colors for Spring/Summer 2017 are blue hues ~ Island Paradise, Niagara, and Lapis Blue. Blues have a calming effect, creating ease, relaxation, and a sense of peace and serenity.
Greenery (Pantone’s color of the year) and Kale are also top colors this season. Green is invigorating, promotes a healthy lifestyle and symbolizes renewal and growth. It generates positive energy, helping us all feel calm and recharged at the same time!
Hazelnut, a key neutral this year, is very earthy. Warm cocoa and mocha tones will be mixed into several color palettes this year, from blues and greens to pinks, soft purple hues, and rich red tones. Brown is an anchor color that evokes a sense of security, strength, and safety.
