    Spring 2018 Pantone Colors Chart

    Spring 2018 Pantone Report Color Chart by Erika Firm

    Wow! The 2018 Spring Colors that Pantone picked for its Spring fashion trends report are lovely, aren’t they? Naturally, Arcadia (hello, any shade of green!!!) is my fave … but I’m also loving Blooming Dahlia, Almost Mauve, and Chili Oil. And surprise … I mean, this is SO unlike me … I also really am loving one of the purples: Pink Lavender. Based on what I’m seeing trending out in the fashion and home décor world, I’m predicting Blooming Dahlia, Pink Lavender, or Chili Oil as the 2018 Color of the Year. I’m seeing tons of Blooming Dahlia and Chili Oil and Almost Mauve in clothing stores, and loads and loads of Pink Lavender, Spring Mauve and Ultra Violet (as well as Chili Oil) in interior design magazines. But we’ll just have to wait and see.

    Spring 2018 Pantone Color Combinations by Erika Firm

    Blooming Dahlia (Pantone 15-1520) goes with everything! I already own a few pieces in this color for my fall wardrobe, but I’m on the hunt for a pretty Chili Oil sweater. I think it will look great with jeans and an olive coat. My favorite combination is Blooming Dahlia-Chili Oil-Almost Mauve. Stunning, right? I’m also loving Arcadia-Emperador-Spring Crocus together. A little bold for my closet, but it could be fun for a spring dinner party tablescape.

    Spring Color Combinations inspired by Pantone 2018 Colors by Erika FirmSome of my favorite 2-color combos using the Pantone Spring 2018 colors are unexpected color combos like Emperador and Lime Punch; Arcadia and Blooming Dahlia; and Chili Oil and Blooming Dahlia. Emperador and Chili Oil are really growing on me. Rich chocolate browns with a hint of rust or red are pretty hot. Like an Aztec hot chocolate. Do you think brown circa 2005 is ready for a comeback? It really does go with everything. Maybe it’s the new grey?
