Niagara – Pantone Fashion Color For Spring 2017

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!

According to Pantone one of the top colors for Spring 2017 is Niagara.

PANTONE 17-4123 Niagara

Comfortable and dependable, Niagara leads the PANTONE Fashion Color Report as the most prevalent color for spring 2017. Niagara is a classic denim-like blue that speaks to our desire for ease and relaxation.

Laurie Pressman
Vice-President of the Pantone Color Institute

PANTONE Fashion Color Report Spring 2017

Members of the Etsy Christmas In July Team have been inspired by the color Niagara. They have created items in their shops reflecting this inspiration! Here are a few!

As a gem dealer the Pantone colors are very important to me each year. There are always many gemstones that can fit the profiles of each Pantone color. This year the Niagra color has been incredibly popular, it is one of my best sellers. Especially since it is available in a tourmaline gemstone the Indicolite Blue color of tourmaline is so rare and unusual.

I dare to say that this one is quiet Niagara like!

I have had a ton of stress in the past couple of months and this type of blue just seems to calm and cool me down in moments of despair.

My in-laws took their honeymoon at Niagara Falls back in the late 1960’s and still vacation there regularly. My husband and I haven’t been there together yet but it is in our plans. Until then I made this necklace inspired by my mother in laws descriptions of the blue water and shining spray of the falls. She has fine and sparkly memories of her times there.

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

Blue is my favorite color. This kyanite pendant goes perfectly with your favorite jeans. The pendant is made from a blue kyanite wand set in a shiny polished soldered cap. The necklace is an antiqued silver toned chain with stamped oval links.

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns says:

These earrings are the ideal Niagara accessory, featuring beautiful denim tones. The earrings texture is imprinted with a pumpkin leaf from my garden while still soft and then glazed to highlight the impressed design.

We used to have a koi pond at our old house. My husband loved those fish so when I found this neat enameled koi fish pendant, I just had to turn it into a key ring.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

 This blue is so calming and easy on the eyes. It captures my attention, but doesn’t scream or shout. It’s a strong and stable color. Maybe that’s why I have it on my walls.

Gosh I just love this blue, and I look forward to using it more often now!

StockLaneStudio

Przemila K from CanisArtStudio says:

The blue color is calming and relaxing. It is the best color for bedroom decor and home interior which we want to feel relaxed. Blue is associated with water and also in winter. I painted this portrait of Syberian Husky on the background of Niagara blue colors to highlight his connection with winter sports. This door decoration promises from here you’ll feel really relaxed and the friendship atmosphere.

Diana from joliefemmebydiana says:

I love this shade of blue! So pretty and classic! Great summer color! This little bag is perfect for a bridesmaid or dressing up to attend a wedding or garden party.

Hazelnut – Pantone Fashion Color For Spring 2017

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!

According to Pantone one of the top colors for Spring 2017 is Hazelnut.

PANTONE 14-1315 Hazelnut

Rounding out the spring 2017 colors is Hazelnut, a key neutral for spring. This shade brings to mind a natural earthiness. Unpretentious and with an inherent warmth, Hazelnut is a transitional color that effortlessly connects the seasons.

Laurie Pressman
Vice-President of the Pantone Color Institute

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

Hazelnut. I’ve been having a hard time labeling this color, now I know!

Did you know the Hazelnut is Oregon’s state nut? I come from Oregon, a prime hazelnut grower, and grew up calling them filberts. The word evokes fond family memories and relaxing carefree times on my uncle’s filbert farm. I think this color brings about a warm relaxing carefree feeling as well.

StockLaneStudio

spoiledfelines1 from SpoiledFelinesArt says:

Hazelnut is a great color. It’s one of those colors that can be used in a variety of ways. My fawn deer plaque is done on bass wood, which is a hazelnut color.

I chose to do the fawn deer on that piece of bass wood because I saw both the fawn deer and bass wood as beautiful and uncomplicated. I like to let the wood and design speak for themselves!

SpoiledFelinesArt

Przemila K from CanisArtStudio says:

The color of hazelnut is the one of the colors of earth and nature, so it is very pleasant to decorate the interior. I used natural wood and shades of brown to make this wall clock for a dog lover. I also used natural, dry oak leaves.

CanisArtStudio

pam colangelo from PearlsVintagebyPam says:

This lamp of a teapot represents a nice cup of tea With hazlenut creamer. Amaretto added to the tea as well. A nice romantic tea party with romantic lighting sets the mood!

PearlsVintagebyPam

Cindy Humphrey from Cynhumphrey says:

This hazelnut neutral color decorated clipboard is perfect for a teacher, coach, or anyone else who uses a clipboard frequently and loves to show off some elegance but yet be practical!

Cynhumphrey

Donna Schindler from TreasuresFromTheLake says:

This bookmark I normally think of the season of fall with. But, rethinking it after reading the article I see that is marks transition; from the dark dreariness of winter, to the rebirth in spring.

TreasuresFromTheLake

Lisajoy Sachs from saxdsign says:

It is my pleasure to introduce you to a really beautiful and rare gemstone the Coyamito Agate, which is only found in one place in the world in Mexico. Coyamito agates are VERY RARE because of a few reasons – firstly they are very hard to find, and secondly they are really hard to cut because of the rare earth inclusions or Pseudomorphs found in the geodes that they are cut from. It comes in some really amazing colors, this one is a lovely hazelnut and earth tones.
