We're still wrapping our heads around how to use Greenery( the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year) in every single way possible, and already, we have more inspiration to ponder for the year ahead. Behold: The 2018 color forecast is here.

At the International Home + Housewares Show, Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman revealed what color and design trends we can expect next year, and there seems to be something for just about everyone.

"Metallics we know are classic, but they have really moved over into neutrals," Eiseman said. She also predicts a continued infatuation with iridescence, since "the human eye can absolutely not avoid" anything pearlized or translucent.

Another standout trend will include a movement to intense colors rather than pastels — music to the ears for bright color lovers.

"Intense colors seem to be a natural application of our intense lifestyles and thought processes these days," she said.

Ready to start color scheming for 2018? Read on for the eight palettes you can expect to see next year.


Resourceful: A palette made up of complementary blue and orange colors. “This is quite an interesting color combination,” said Eiseman. “It combines warm and cool tones that you just can’t avoid looking at.”

Verdure: Vegetal colors like Celery are combined with berry-infused purples and eggshell blue, symbolic of health, in this palette.

Playful: Think "Minions." Bright yellow, lime popsicle, and all other things funcome together for this color scheme. "People need to stop and smile," said Eiseman.

Discretion: Playful's alter ego. Subtle hues such as Elderberry and Hawthorne Rose offer a new sense of strength. "Pink has developed more power than ever before," said Eiseman.

Far-fetched:With warm, earthy hues such as Cornsilk Yellow blending with rosy tones, this palette "reaches out and embraces many different cultures," said Eiseman.

Intricacy: A palette of neutral metallics (AKA, the "new neutrals") with accents of dramatic Holly Berry red and yellow Sulfur.

Intensity: This is an eclectic mix of colors that evokes a sense of strength, power and sophistication, all balanced with black and gold.

TECH-nique: Bright turquoise, pink and purple colors anchored with Brilliant White and Frosted Almond nod to technology. This palette is all about hues "that seem to shine from within," said Eiseman.
