Pantone's Colour Trends For 2018

Ultra Violet was named as Pantone's Colour Of The Year for 2018. And, the industry leaders have also revealed the other colours that will be trending across homes and interiors across the globe next year.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director at Pantone Colour Institute described the broad predictions which will soon have you searching for ways to incorporate your favourite choice into your home or office space!

Here are the eight colour trends you can watch out for in 2018:

Resourceful: A palette 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.”

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.

Discretion: Playful's alter ego. Subtle hues such as Elderberry and Hawthorne Rose 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.

Intensity: This is an eclectic mix of colors that evokes a sense of strength, power and sophistication, all balanced with black and gold.

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.
