For those of us who aren’t exactly green with envy for Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year, rest assured that there are actually nine runners up that you’ll likely fall in love with in the new year. Taking cues from the hues on the runways of New York Fashion Week and the color experts at Pantone, we’ve got your hot colors for 2017 (spoiler alert: kale isn’t just a trendy salad ingredient anymore).
1. Primrose Yellow
It’s been a dark and contentious 2016, so we’re all looking for a little sunshine in the new year. That’s why sunny primrose yellow will be a shining star in homes everywhere.
2. Pale Dogwood
Not quite over the blushingly beautiful pink tones of Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year, Rose Quartz? Good. Neither are we! This year pink goes even paler with this sandy light hue.
Adding heat to the 2017 color palette, this warm hue is 2017’s take on painting the town red.
4. Pink Yarrow
If you’re ready to go seriously bold, consider splashes of the seriously bold Pink Yarrow. This definitely works well with the Art Deco look you’ll see popping up more in the new year.
Since you can only have so much Flame and Pink Yarrow in your life, Hazelnut comes to the rescue, offering a sense of much-needed neutral balance.
4. Island Paradise:
Appropriately named, Pantone’s Island Paradise is that soft, soothing shade we’re craving a piece of over Spring break.
Jean-lovers, rejoice! You can continue rocking your favorite flares right into 2017. Known for it’s durability, comfort, and effortless style, “Niagara is a classic denim-like blue that speaks to our desire for ease and relaxation,” says Pantone.
If eating healthy is on your list of New Year’s Resolutions, why not surround yourself with this nutrient-rich shade of green?
9. Lapis Blue:
Vibrant and bold, Lapis Blue makes a major statement and gives off a sense of confidence.
