The curtain may have just closed at NYFW, but Manhattan’s celebration of fashion is only just getting started in terms of interior design trends.
The global authority on color, Pantone, has responded to the colors of S/S 22 catwalks by releasing a trend report that lists the shades we can expect to see both in our wardrobes – and throughout our wider interiors in the coming months.
The colors, Pantone reveals, combine ‘comfort with free-spirited optimism’ and prompt a craving for joyous adventures – and 2022 looks very bright indeed. When it comes to painted wall ideas, these are the hues that will set you ahead of the inevitable trend.
Pantone’s report (opens in new tab) showcased ten significant colors from NYFW that are set to be big news over the coming seasons – alongside five Core Classics that with an ageless appeal. The trendy hues comprise of diversely distinctive shades that unite to create a comforting scheme – boasting unexpected delights.
Stand-out shades include Spun Sugar (opens in new tab), a powered pastel with organic undertones, the blushing tones of Gossamer Pink (opens in new tab), and the regent shade, Innuendo (opens in new tab). Pantone also forecast a dynamic purple future through their shade, Dahlia (opens in new tab), with a hint of danger from their fiery red, Poinciana (opens in new tab).
According to Pantone’s experts, these fashionable shades mirror the ‘aspiration for balance’ as you move across different landscapes following a turbulent era. However, they also evoke ‘comfort, clarity and security' and satisfy the urge to surround yourself with the familiar – and newfound joy.
Meanwhile, gray enthusiasts will be relieved to see its allure endure for 2022, with Northern Droplet (opens in new tab) sitting amongst the Core Classics palette. Other key shades include Snow White (opens in new tab), Perfectly Pale (opens in new tab), and Basil (opens in new tab) – in a nod to green – and its ever-increasing power in the interiors world.
‘Colors for Spring/Summer 2022 bring together our competing desires for comforting familiarity and joyful adventure through a range of soothing and timeless colors, along with joyous hues that celebrate playfulness,’ adds Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman.
‘As we enter this new landscape where fashion rules no longer apply, hues for Spring/Summer 2022 allow us to mix and marry as we please, encouraging the exploration of new chromatic realities, and opening the door for personalized style and spontaneous color statements.’
Are these the colors behind our future modern home decor ideas? While it is hard to predict the future – we know Pantone – and they often come very close.
