The holiday season is upon us, which also means that 2016 is drawing to a close (amazing how quickly time flies!). It’s great to live in the now by being present in the present with your friends and family. However, it’s always good to look ahead and start thinking/planning what you want to do in the near future and beyond.

When it comes to painting and design, 2017 seems like it will be a year full of vibrant surprises, according to the Pantone Color Institute. “Leatrice (Lee) Eiseman – executive director of the Pantone Color Institute – told a capacity crowd in her annual seminar at the 2016 International Home + Housewares Show. Eiseman unveiled the nine color palettes for 2017 from Pantone View Home + Interiors. Among the color and design trends she shared are: the rising use of maps – both traditional and contemporary – as a design element; the resurgence of black and white imagery; power-clashing – ‘the use of unexpected color combinations that seem to be discordant but yet they still work’; pixilated and digitized patterns; and the popularity of green, both as the color of nature and of health and wellness.”
