The Pantone Color Institute is a known source for design industry standards, specializing in reports on color and trend forecasting. One of their most anticipated releases is their annual New York Fashion Week Trend Report. This is published for the fashion industry and features ten colors Pantone predicts will be used by designers and worn by models on the runway.
This year, the colors “are infused with a hint of nostalgia yet at the same time speak to transformation as we embrace a more positive way of living.” With self-expression at the forefront of fashion, familiar tones with a contemporary edge pave the way for a re-invented future. Ultimately, these colors hope to inspire us to intentionally express ourselves for brighter times ahead.
Since we won’t all be front row at New York’s Fashion Week this year (unfortunately), we rounded up some of our most-fitting wallcovering designs to bring the optimistic story told by these hues to our fingertips.
Our Apparition design is recolored in the Marlin hue for a subtle, grounding design that can easily calm chaotic atmospheres. For those of us more fun-loving and free-spirited, we have our Floral Fandango design by Fiona Howard in the cheery Lemon Drop shade. Because a retro Kelly green never goes out of style, our Pixie design is a geometric pattern that adds the perfect touch of timeless detail with a pop of the Mint color. Last but not least, a little cyan never hurt anyone. Our Chiseled design by Jeff Andrews has a unique look inspired by vintage ceramics and comes in the Capri hue with a metallic finish (because we need some glam for Fashion Week, after all).
If you can’t be clad head-to-toe in Pantone’s predictions this season, at least your walls can.
