We’re more connected now than any other time in history. This connection will bring stunning colors inspired by other nations and cultures.

Thanks to an ever-evolving global connection and increasing social media, there will be an emphasis on our shared spaces. We’ll see color palettes shaped by influences from China, Cuba, African and Middle Eastern countries.

Red is an important color for many cultures: It symbolizes action, confidence, and courage. Expect to see a resurgence in a multicultural red representing courage and bravery.

A happy, harvest-influenced yellow will also make the rounds. This rich yellow tone has a hint of earthiness, and works well with a grounded blue and an earthy twist on classic red.

Riding the tails of this palette’s positivity and optimism, yellow-green works as an uplifting accent.

This palette is all about striking a balance between seemingly opposing tones. We’ll see an emphasis on simplicity and pared-down design.

Youth is an attitude -- not an age. As generations become more fluid, color palettes will morph and evolve as well. In 2017, expect to see celebratory colors that create inclusiveness and blend technological advancements with nature.

Technology continues to play a key role in our lives, and it’s that evolving technology that inspires the dark, powerful grays we will see in the coming year. A bold yellow and strong orange bring a sense of vitality and health into the future.

As consumers become more conscious about wellness and more intentional about connection, we will see more deliberate color choices, too.

2017 will put a fresh spin on natural colors and textures. These cleansing organic tones encourage connection, health, and considerate living. Simple, balancing hues promote a temporary disconnect from the digital realm in favor of getting back to the basics. These simplified colors are packed with longevity and manage to be forward-thinking without being too trendy.

 

Soft, romantic colors, such as sagey yellow-greens and dusty, tried-and-true blues, will make prominent appearances. Expect to see believable, authentic greens along with grounded, earthy red browns.
