We're super excited about the Pantone Spring forecast for 2016 - a palette described as calming, encouraging relaxtion, then curiosity and exploration.
The selectors of the palette were influenced by the contrast of urban design and lush vegetation, by unexpected colour combinations reminiscent of architecure, travel and nostalgia.
"Colours this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "With our culture still surrounded by so much uncertainty, we are continuing to yearn for those softer shades that offer a sense of calm and relaxation."
We think these colours would work great in interior spaces also - think a calming Limpet Blue living space with a deep Snorkel Blue feature or a neutral kitchen with hints of Lilac Grey and Fiesta. You can find many similar colours in the Formica AR Plus Solid Colour range, perfect for benchtops or kitchen cabinetry.
