DECORATING WITH THE PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR

My fave five PANTONE colors of the year and how to decorate/ style with them:

AURORA RED

One of my favorite colors of autumn and winter, aurora red, exuding sensuality and boldness this color is striking in interiors and fashion.  Pantone describes this as “exciting and dynamic, breeds unmistakable confidence,” and “gets the metaphorical blood of the palette pumping.”  There is no mistaking, this color is a statement maker and I will definitely be incorporating it into my winter style.

2. SHARKSKIN 

After the gray hair trend took over the last year, it was only a matter of time before it took trend in the world of fashion and interiors.  Sharkskin is the gray to wear this autumn/ winter!  According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, “Sharkskin is still a concept of gray but it can be used a very stable way. It is a color that you can literally and theoretically rest on its neutrality, as in a tombstone. And as its name implies, it is meant to help people toughen up” in these trying times.

3. LUSH MEADOW

The rich depth of color in Lush Meadow radiates nothing short of sophistication and refinement.  Just like Aurora red, this bold color works well in both fashion and interiors, whether used sparingly or as a bold statement.  This striking color makes it to the top of my list for interiors!

DUSTY CEDAR

Dusty Cedar is one of my favorites of the season!  After Rose Quartz was one of the colors of the year and seen in may interiors over the summer, it seems only fitting to have a slightly darker, rose-toned pink in the autumn and winter seasons.  Loving the glamorous look of this color.

POTTERS CLAY

Since I’m from New Mexico, and we see stunning pottery from the Native American cultures, this color has a special place in my heart.  The perfect autumn color, a neutral with orange undertones, what color could be better?  This bold, yet earthy-toned hue makes for the perfect autumn palette.

As the season is shifting from summer pastels to warm autumn tones, cozy up by a fire, with your softest sweater and enjoy your week!

XO,

Adriana
