3 PANTONE COLOUR TRENDS TO KNOW FOR 2016

When it comes to keeping up with the latest colour trends, Pantone is the expert authority on the next big thing. And although we’re only just gearing up for winter, the Pantone team has already declared what’s hot for next year. 

According to the brand’s Spring 2016 report, Rose Quartz, Lilac Grey and Limpet Shell are three of the hues to embrace. So, if you like to stay one step ahead, here’s how to decorate your home with these pastel shades

Rose Quartz

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, describes this muted pink as a ‘persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.’ Choose a comfy armchair to make a statement with or experiment with a patterned carpet.

Lilac Grey

‘Essentially a basic, the subtlety of the lilac undertone in Lilac Grey, adds a distinctive edge to this classic grey shade,’ Eiseman says. Just more proof the trend for grey isn’t going anywhere – and this ‘basic’ doesn’t have to be boring. These Bert & May tiles are sure to stand out.

Limpet Shell

‘Suggestive of clarity and freshness, its crisp and modern influences evoke a deliberate, mindful tranquility,’ says Eiseman. There’s no better way to welcome the start of a new season than with a few cosy home accessories in a clean, cool colour. Keep this aqua tone on your radar next spring.
