Colour Trends for 2018

Oh my goodness what a busy couple of weeks it has been as colour trends and forecasting start to emerge for 2018.

Last week Dulux announced their colour palettes for 2018.

They have announced four different colour palettes based on themes which produces quite a wide range of colours from light to dark. The themes are Kinship, Essential, Escapade and Reflect.

The overall feeling of these palettes is very earthy and the standout images for me were these because I am loving dark and moody colours at the moment…

The four colour palettes created by Dulux are pictured here…

Not all of the Dulux images were as moody as my favourite three.  Their forecasts have many amazing images, another selection are here…

This morning Pantone announced their colour report for NY 2018 Fashion Week…. drum roll please.

The reason this is so important is because fashion is a leader in colour predictions.  What we see on international runways is a great indicator of what we will see coming into our homes.

The colour report has created a palette of colours for Spring 2018 which is pictured here…

In addition to this palette, they also have a Spring 2018 Classic Colour Palette…

Overall, I believe our colours coming into 2018 will be earthy, brown based colours with pops of vivid bold accents.  As much as I love dark and moody colours, I predict our overall trends for 2018 will have a bright future but I’ll keep you posted.

If you’re interested in colour or have any colour questions please contact me, I’d be happy to help.
