Colour Trends to Look Forward to in 2017 + Free Download

I don’t know about you but it just struck me that September is drawing to an end, which means that 2016 is drawing to an end – wow!

Having said that, I’m also pretty excited since next year’s colour trends are right up my alley. Not all black, white and grey (although I think the monochrome trend will probably continue for a little while) but according to both Plascon and Pantone‘s colour forecasts for 2017, we can look forward to neutrals, warm earthy tones and muted colours taking the centre stage, as well as the occasional pop of bright colour. And for those of you who still can’t get enough of Rose Quartz and Serenity, not to worry, since the pastel trend is far from over.

My favourite so far is actually Plascon’s Colour of the Year 2017, appropriately named “In the Mood”:

I love it and already have a few ideas on how we can incorporate it into our future designs. Here are a few more of my favourites (scroll down to the bottom for some free mobile and desktop backgrounds inspired by these):

You can view all four of Plascon’s colour stories here and as mentioned earlier, I made some desktop and mobile backgrounds which you can download here.

As for next year’s colour trends, I’d love to know what you think. If you love it (and even if you don’t), tell us about it. Also, we’d love to know what kind of products you would like to see from us in 2017, which is why I made a quick little survey which you can fill in here. Alternatively, just tell us in the comments below or on Facebook. 🙂
