Pantone Colour Of The Year 2017

December 17th, 2016 in All About Blinds

Last week, Pantone Colour Institute announced their colour of the year, and it’s a shade that makes our Head of Design very happy! Yes, it’s a green. More specifically – Greenery.
Green isn’t a colour that people tend to pick for their blinds and curtains, so instead of showing off a collection of just green blinds, we’ve taken each of the Pantone colour palettes for their colour of the year, and worked them into achievable rooms that everyone will enjoy.

pcoty-ethereal

Natural Rowen Wooden Blind & Taimi Apple Roller Blind

With material in this palette’s name, we think this ought to be the focus for the scheme. Whether it’s a wood or brickwork, mix it with blues and green and layer up the materials.

pcoty-calm-it-down

Essence Fresh Mint Venetian Blind & Dancing Tulips Cream Roman Blind

The palette ‘Calm It Down’ plays into the philosophy of Greenery, helping to focus on the ‘pursuit of personal passions and vitality’. Keep Greenery as an accent rather than a focus, with cutesy pastel shades bringing calm into a room.

With Greenery all about vitality, the Moody Blooms palette is full life! Choose just a few of the complementary shades for a scheme that’ll really pop.

pcoty-analogus

Flavia Wild Grape Roman Blind & Expressions Eggshell Roof Blind

We love how the Analogous scheme feels rejuvenating yet calm at the same time. The gentility of purples and pinks work with fresh greens and the addition of pale creams makes it an achievable look.

There is never a dispute that green works with blue, so it’s no surprise that Pantone have created the Fathomless palette. Mix with a few dark greys for a balanced look.

Tetra Juniper & Primrose Hill Olive Roman Blinds

“Greenery is nature’s neutral”. That’s what Pantone have to say about their colour of the year, and we reckon that natural patterns ought to be the focus of this trend too!

Sula Honey & Notions Springtime Roller Blinds

This palette is about bringing Greenery in through the most subtle of ways, think a few potted plants or a single offering of the colour. The scheme is warm and cosy too, with the pinks and oranges making up most of the theme.
