Milan 2017 Spring Colors

We often look to art and fashion for color inspiration, particularly for more unusual color combinations.  The interiors industry is known to be slower to the fashion industry in this realm and industry-forecasted colors do not necessarily manifest into actual trends.  Color palettes displayed at design fairs like at this Spring’s Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone in Milan illustrate current colors through exhibition design and actual product launches.

Blush tones are still prevalent though went earthier towards terra cotta and clay, and away from saccharine pink.  Gold, umber and orange made a strong showing, seemingly the feature wall at many exhibitions.  Dark green in deep hues and blue-green shades made appearances on furniture especially case goods and millwork components.  Light blue and sky blue accents served as the cool hue counterpoint.  Perhaps we’re seeking warmth and earthiness, and our old standby…nature.
