The Pantone Color Institute, the leading color authority and provider of color systems, recently released its Fashion Color Report for Spring 2017 in conjunction with New York Fashion Week. While the report reflects the top shades seen on the runway of wearable fashion, the ten colors – that range from bright and vivid to more natural and earthy – are also very workable and relevant for interior fashion. Pantone describes the collection as a “mixture of vitality, relaxation and the great outdoors…reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature.” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, noted that one of the things they saw on the Fashion week runway was a renewed sense of imagination in which color was appearing in a context that was different than the traditional. She said the runway designers “applied color in playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope and transformation that we yearn for each Spring.”
Knowing the skills and creative vision of those in the commercial and residential design communities, we anticipate inventive, intentional use of color for interiors in the coming year, as well. And when design pros specify tile to answer the color trends in the coming year, they can turn to our collections for a veritable rainbow of options. Here’s a look at Pantone’s top 10 Spring colors as translated in beautiful Crossville porcelain and glass tile collections.
Crossville is dedicated to not only being at the forefront of color trends but also leading them for our industry. The examples shared here are just a sampling of the options that alignwith Pantone’s anticipated palettes for spring. We also offer a full range of foundational neutrals that will beautifully coordinate with fashion forward color trends and modern aesthetics.
