color trends - spring 2017
HONEST STYLE FOR A COMPLEX WORLD
Fake news, truth, and the debate between differing views. Our current struggles are leading a shift to intentional choices to live an honest and simple life. A search for authentic design brings us to look for styles and products that are true and long lasting. Current trends for soft, muted color fit smoothly with our desire for timeless, modern design that helps us clear our mind. The early months of spring are a top time to study and select the best of what is new for trending color. Blue in all shades seems to be a perfect choice. Pale like a whisper, or intense to add drama, blue and its cousin aqua along with soft greens offer an honest and clean style to a space. We will continue to see soft, ethereal colors along with neutrals like gray, white and beige dominate our color choices.
We hope you find inspiration in our 2017 Spring Color Report. Stop by your neighborhood Diamond Vogel for samples of these great colors.
