According to executive director Leatrice (Lee) Eiseman of the famous color company Pantone Color Institute, the trending colors for this year will be a mixture of nine different color palettes.  Which really translates to 1,867 possibilities for us to choose from.

Along with the color trends, she also shared design trends to look for in 2017 which we are thrilled about.

Here at Vintage Style Living we're thrilled that at the 2016 International Home and Housewares show Eiseman revealed that even though the sleek and contemporary looks are frequently seen today, the vintage or retro look is not going anywhere anytime soon. The new buzzword is “Rescue” which is replacing recycling in the design world, also handcrafted and raw materials are seeing a resurgence.



Raw Materials

The Raw Materials palette use’s both the reuse and repurposing of materials from nature, also the health and wellness movements are represented in this palette. Zephyr pink offers an unexpected pop of color against the many more natural tones.

In this photo, we love how they incorporated the use of the repurposed brick wall as the main backdrop and used vintage elements to bring everything together. Notice the pops of color used and the heavy distressing for added texture.



Day Dreaming

This palette is a continuation of the Color of the Year pastel theme, with colors that evoke thoughts that are light and weightless; in contrast to the heaviness of day-to-day stresses. A key here is that other colors, such as yellow iris and a Nile green, are used to expand on the blue and pink.

This beautiful Farmhouse style kitchen has soft pastel colors that really perk up the all-white breakfast nook. Using lots of textures creates different points of interesting contrast to the room while ensuring the simple color palette doesn’t end up too flat.




At Ease

A step from day-dreaming, this palette is grayed down for a more sophisticated feel. A variety of ever-popular neutrals, both cool and warm, are blended with muted tones in a way that seems effortless.

The gray walls really make the white vintage style chest and the colorful rug stand out and gives this bathroom a spa-like feel. 




Native Instincts

Style-wise, current and future forecasts point to a homogenous mix of design and color where a piece of Native American pottery is compatible with a Turkish kilim carpet or a pre-Columbian artifact. Likewise, this palette offers bold colors like a smoky orchid and a carmine red along with softer earth tones.

Here they used several different design elements to give this room a unique look. The Native American accent pillows and an ornate area rug add color and texture while the neutral furniture adds balance. This room has a lot of different styles mixed into it from a rustic farmhouse to eclectic, and bohemian.

Just like its name implies, this palette is filled with the sumptuous beauty of rich floral hues. This palette offers a lot of drama from pink yarrow, chrysanthemum, red dahlia and Baton Rouge, as well as varying shades of green.

This is another great look if you’re wanting to add rich vibrant colors. Go ahead don’t be afraid to use strong colors as you can see in this photo how gorgeous this living room is with the bright color accents.  



Acquired Taste

 In both food and surroundings, an acquired taste means an appreciation for the distinctively different. Such is the case with this palette, which offers a mix of colors and/or textures not commonly seen together, yet they combine for a palette that is subtly luxurious. Colors include orange chiffon, pale gold, mulberry, brandied melon, a dove gray, and a muted pink.

Go bold with this fun color palette and really make your vintage décor stand out! We love the gold vintage mirror that they used to create the main focal point in the room while adding the purple table and the vintage green lamp to add to the palette.



 Forest Bathing

This stress-reducing palette is inspired by the Japanese practice of “Shinrin-yoku,” or forest bathing. Studies have shown that a contemplative walk in the woods reconnects the individual with nature and elevates their mood. Several shades of green and blue-green are enlisted, which are contrasted by grape kiss and an acid lime.

We love how they used the Forest Bathing palette in this dining room. The bright yellow and lime green accent colors complement the green dining room set perfectly. While adding a rustic farmhouse green light and smaller different shades of yellow accent lights bring this palette together. Don’t forget to add some colored glass vases or candleholders for added texture.

A different kind of walk – a walk down memory lane – is the mood conveyed here. Traditional shades like maritime blue, sepia tint, and rattan convey a sense of nostalgia and stability, but the mix of new colors like murky martini olive and bird’s egg green keep the palette feeling fresh.

 The Reminiscence palette is a great choice to go with your vintage style décor. It’s a great way to incorporate your vintage accents. 



Graphic Imprints

Described by Eiseman as “great fun,” this palette starts with a base of black and white, but then pulls in a series of strong, vibrant colors with names that tell a story themselves: blazing yellow, dazzling blue, prism pink, fandango pink, opaline green.
