Pantone have released their 2017 colour trend predictions

2017 will be the year of Kale.

In lieu with tradition, Pantone have released the top ten colours for spring 2017, to coincide with various fashion weeks around the world.

Their predictions are usually pretty accurate – a keen eye can spot their list dotted throughout the spring/summer ’17 runways in a second – and last year they even hinted at what would be the colour of the year through their spring predictions.

This year, the list is decidedly subdued, featuring plenty of muted, earthy tones, including Kale and Hazelnut, with pops of primary colours like Lapis Blue  and Primrose Yellow.

Everything from fashion trends to interior design is influenced by Pantone’s predictions: case in point, one of their colours of the year for 2016, Rose Quartz, has been seen everywhere from furniture to shoes and buildings.

See entire list below:

Hazelnut

Kale

Pink Yarrow

Greenery

6 Repurposed Uses for Old Dressers

Space for a Sink

Make a big splash in the bathroom by repurposing an old dresser as a vanity. It is particularly easy to retrofit a dresser with a vessel sink—simply drill holes in the top for the drain and faucets. Be sure to use a water-resistant sealer on the wood to prevent rot and mold.

Dressed for Dinner

Dressers make ideal kitchen islands because they come with plenty of storage space and a flat surface that can be upgraded with granite or butcher block. To make your dresser even more at home in the kitchen, add storage hooks or a towel bar.

Drawer Decor

Even if the bulk of an old dresser isn’t salvageable, the drawers can always be repurposed as wall shelves. Mount the drawers with their bottoms to the wall for a shadow-box effect, or jutting out from the wall lengthwise for deeper storage.

Spring Wardrobe

Consider moving an old dresser outdoors to create a tiered plant display. The drawers can hold a collection of potted plants or be filled directly with soil to create a large planter—but be sure to drill drainage holes in the bottom of each drawer.

Tune In

A low horizontal dresser makes a great TV console. It can be easily converted to hold your cable box and DVD player by removing the top drawer or two, and it provides plenty of places to tuck unsightly wires and cords.

Approach the Bench

An old dresser can serve as the perfect frame for a square bench. Remove all but the lowest drawer, then saw the top off the dresser, along with any internal drawer supports. Cut a thick board to size and install it above the bottom drawer to create a seat. Add a cushion and coat of paint or stain for a finishing touch.

From Modern to Cottage Style; Interiors with a Splash of Turquoise And Aqua Add Exoticness

Turquoise is much more than another color from the gemstone lineup. Its many shades, hues and tones combine to paint a world of joyousness and glee. Just like the gemstone, the color is deeply ingrained in human history as one that brings peace, harmony and lasting happiness. Native Indians believed that this fallen sky stone had an ability to ward off evil and offer health. Similarly the color has been embraced by cultures across the world as one that energizes interiors while providing pleasure and serenity.

Hot Color Trends: Three Fashionable Hues That Serve You All Year Long

A change in season often brings with it an entirely different take on colors, styles and patterns. For design aficionados, it offers a chance to tinker with the color scheme of their house in a subtle and elegant fashion. Yet most of us are put off by the idea of having to drastically shift between colors every two to three months. This also means that you need to rethink your entire design theme at times. While having a neutral backdrop with bright pops of color is a wonderful alternative, one still needs to pick the right accent colors to pull off this look.

Cheerful and Versatile Coral

If you have an interior that seems drab and even mundane, then just add a pinch of coral and you will see it spring back to life! With bright oranges making a grand comeback in 2014, coral is the ideal color for those who wish to join in on the trend and yet dare to decorate with a difference! While bubbly Tangerine has been dubbed the in color by some, coral is a refreshing alternative that is far more elegant and equally vibrant. Instantly adding glamour, simple coral accents in the form of throw pillows and stylish drapes can easily change the entire appeal of your living room or bedroom

For those looking to incorporate coral in a more permanent fashion, we suggest a blend of beautiful, light aqua and luminescent coral accents for a fresh, Mediterranean style. This is a style that seems perfect for both spring and summer, and a dash of lime green along with fresh yellows makes it even more engaging. Just swap out these light shades for dark chocolate and deep browns, and corals look equally appealing once cold winter days arrive.

The Vibrant Magic of Teal

Here is a color that not only works well on its own, but seems to complement coral beautifully! Teal is a mixture of blue and green and comes in a wide variety of shades and hues. With a change in its intensity and the amount of white or grey that is mixed with it, teal can paint a picture varying from the radiant to the refined! As versatile as coral, the many shades of teal make it as much a part of the summer home makeover as the winter overhaul. And it is this adaptable nature of teal that has made it so popular in the last few years.

Below you see four lovely inspirations that show you how gorgeous teal looks as a summer hue. Sometimes closely resembling turquoise, teal can even alter the appeal of a room by simply changing the intensity of lighting around it. White, teal and bright pops of orange are a perfect blend for a living or dining room with coastal or Mediterranean style. Capturing the informal appeal of summer and fall flawlessly, lighter tones of teal evoke images of a sunny day on the beach.

Posh and Majestic Eggplant

The world around us has a huge impact on the colors that we choose, and exotic purples have once again taken over from steely grays since the day the world economy found its footing again. (Or so say the experts!) Regardless of the reason behind it, eggplant is a color that you want to use around your house in the next few years. Sophisticated and stunning, this color is admired by may. In fact, the latest research suggests that even infants prefer this regal shade in their nursery! Much like teal, you can pick between the many shades of eggplant to alter the overall vibe of your home.

Deeper tones of eggplant are ideal for living room accent walls and decor additions. Bedrooms benefit from a lighter shade of eggplant, as it helps create a more relaxed atmosphere. Since the color is so rich, be careful not to fill the room with too much aubergine. A couple of plush accent chairs or a gorgeous couch in brinjal is often enough to give the room a touch of class!
