Pantone’s color palette predictions for the 2007 Home

Pantone, Inc., the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, unveiled PANTONEView Home 2007, the eight most directional color palettes for the home furnishings market for 2007. Here’s one of the eight palettes:

2007 Pantone Home 1: Simply Elegant
The first palette, Simply Elegant, is a prime example of the marriage of tradition and modern day, the continuing eclectic approach where new technologies, especially in fabrication, finishes and styling, adeptly enable (and encourage) the use of unexpected mixes and textures. Color treatments are equally unique in beautiful blends of mahogany silvered mink, silvery blues, elegant purples and deep bronzed tones set off by the glint of pale gold, frosty almond and copper.

2007 Pantone Home 2: Classic Chic*
Classic Chic invokes both neo-classic and newly classic – the always in style, tasteful tones and timeless lines that promise lasting value. Gray provides a real presence in both light and deeper tones, while the sister shade of silver and a lustrous champagne add a glamorous sparkle. A mineralized yellow and a sensuous red bring a ripple of excitement to cappuccino brown. A classic palette would not be complete without the ubiquitous yang and yen of black and white, often used with the cappuccino colors.

2007 Pantone Home 3: Lumens*
Luminous finishes, shiny or slightly de-lustered surfaces, and technically correct lighting (both dramatic and low key) all reflect the sleek simplicity of uncluttered lines interspersed with multi-faceted hues. Lumens includes the dazzling water-borne blues, jewel-like emerald or opaline greens, ultra violet, vibrant rose, metallic silver and the piercing clarity of bright white.

2007 Pantone Home 4: Mélange*
Flavored by melon, apricot, strawberry and orange, Mélange is an assortment of tantalizing shades guaranteed to stimulate the visual appetite. In addition to the warm fruit flavors, and feeding the need for fresh, vital combinations, there is a toasty tan, a vibrant poppy red, a vivacious yellow, a balancing blue – all well grounded by a rustic khaki.

2007 Pantone Home 5: Aux Naturale*
Cleaning up, paring down, a lack of pretension and excessive ornamentation will continue to have great appeal for many. Aux Naturale spawns a variety of so-called organic colors, especially those that seem to have an unbleached quality. The most important shades are creamy whites, sandy beiges, essential tans, taupes, gray and mellow browns accented by subtly shaded roses, lily pad green and the ultimate color of integrity, a denim-like blue.

2007 Pantone Home 6: Grass Roots*
Grass Roots looks to indigenous crafts and materials that bring a regional flavor to products or environments. Some of those regions might be far-flung while some are much closer to home. In reality, while some of the products may be mass produced, they look as if they are hand hewn, hand-loomed or individually crafted. Grass Roots starts with the variations on a green theme, moves on to mineral blue and various wood tones that are enhanced by unexpected mixes including grape, rose and terra cotta.

Adobe Rose#B99C96rgb(185, 156, 150)PANTONE 16-1508
2007 Pantone Home 7: Fresh Air*
The dictionary defines something fresh as that which is “refreshingly different from what has been done previously.” Certainly the spontaneity of the stylized designs and finishes mixed into this palette is truly like a breath of “Fresh Air,” where woven twines may meet with metallic sheens and smooth resins are coupled with textured leathers. Color combinations are equally inventive, for example, green pesto, vibrant yellow and yellow-greens combining artfully with cyclamen pink, purples and violets, sky blues and snow whites.

Mimosa#EEC050rgb(238, 192, 80)PANTONE 14-0848
2007 Pantone Home 8: A Light Touch*
A Light Touch suggests a soft impression – the deft use of softer colors that speak of quiet spaces in an increasingly noisy world. For many people, it is a comfort zone to return to again and again. The challenge is how to keep it looking up-to-date. Modernizing a pastel palette can be skillfully and easily done by re-inventing the colors and the color combinations. Take the classic pastels of foamy aquas and greens, pinks and lavenders, powdery blues, sun-tinged yellows and angora whites to the next level by infusing them with a touch of champagne, or by introducing the sophistication of a silvery gray or rosy taupe.

I’m really not connecting with any of these. Does that mean I will? I’m not the biggest purple fan in the world, that’s for sure and most of these have some hue of purple. You’ve seen my place, you know what I’m about. Let’s check back in 5 years and see if I am in fact the trendsetter people have claimed me to be.

I found your site while researching a subject for a school assignment on why different parts of the world have different color pallets ? Am really impressed with the amount of information you have on your site. Australia is red earth ochre but why would red and gold be popular is asia or the rich jewel tones in Europe? Not much on the internet or in library books on the topic. Do you have any suggestions where I can read more on this subject.

Consumers are now seeking an emotional connection with color. And now, more than ever, colors in most industries must be livable, versatile and have longevity. Consumers are making durable but versatile choices.

These are really nice color palletes, for those of us who have no clue how to match colors this can be really helpful. This gives me a great point of reference for when I go to remodel my home, as I would have no idea where to start as far as colors go. I’m sure I’ll have a decorator help me out, but this gives me a head-start for choosing the right look. Cheers!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
