What Colours Will Work in My New Home? Get some inspiration from Pantone.

What Colours Will Work in My New Home?


‘The Pantone Color Institute’ is the global authority on colour, and the provider of colour systems and leading technology for the selection and accurate communication of colour across a variety of industries.

For more than 20 years, Pantone surveys the designers of New York Fashion Week and beyond to bring you the season’s most important colour trends.

Are you moving into a new home or looking to renovate your walls? Take inspiration from the latest Pantone Spring Report and our Smart Home interior design images we’ve matched them too (well tried to match anyway).

I wonder if some of these palette trends would work well in your own home…

Placid Blue (PANTONE 15-3920)


The Destiny by Smart Homes for Living, Western Australia.

“Like a picture-perfect, tranquil and reassuring sky, induces a sense of peaceful calmness.”
Why not have a pale blue feature in the living room, perhaps a couch or pillows to add some serenity in one of the busiest spaces of the home.

Violet Tulip (PANTONE 16-3823)


The Fusion by Smart Homes for Living, Western Australia. 

“A romantic, vintage purple, evokes wistful nostalgia. Similar to the verdant shade of springtime foliage.”
Pale purple looks fantastic in paintings for bedrooms and it is often a nice contrast alongside a darker purple.

Hemlock (PANTONE 15-6114)


The Equinox by Smart Homes for Living, Western Australia. 

“A summery, ornamental green, provides a decorative touch that’s very different from the greens of recent seasons. Pair any of these versatile pastels with a bolder hue for an au courant look.”
Antique green accessories in the home add some freshness. Why not have green chairs in the activity room.

Sand (PANTONE 15-1225)


The Equinox by Smart Homes for Living, Western Australia. 

A lightly toasted and amiable neutral, conjures images of the beach and the carefree days of summer. Try pairing Sand with Hemlock for a perfect, natural balance.”
Sand coloured floor tiling makes a perfect neutral canvas for the rest of the home features to really stand out.

Paloma (PANTONE 16-0000)


The Wisdom by Smart Homes for Living, Western Australia. 

“Serves as a quintessential neutral, interesting enough to be worn alone or combined with any colour for sophisticated poise.”
A neutral grey looks great in a theatre room, not too dark, but warm enough to get cosy.

Cayenne (PANTONE 18-1651)


The Expert by Smart Homes for Living, Western Australia.

“A high-pitched red, adds a dash of spicy heat to neutrals, and heightens the excitement when mixed with Freesia.”
Inject some bright red colour into your kitchen through highlighting feature panels.

Freesia (PANTONE 14-0852)


The Stellar by Smart Homes for Living Western Australia

“A blazing yellow that is sure to illuminate wardrobes this season. A tropical floral-inspired shade, Freesia’s warmth and energy help set the stage for Celosia Orange.”

Lighting that is encased in bright yellow gives a bold and bright effect.

Celosia Orange (PANTONE 17-1360)


The Must by Smart Homes for Living.

“An optimistic and spontaneous hue. Pair Celosia Orange with Violet Tulip for a captivating vision, much like the setting summer sun.”
Bright orange accessories and highlights look great in the activity room

Radiant Orchid (PANTONE 18-3224)


The Protege by Smart Homes for Living 

A bold counterpart to Violet Tulip that is strong and vibrant, the perfect companion to pastels.”

Dark purple panel feature in the study office, not too bright to distract you from concentrating but it’s still bold enough to make a statement.

Dazzling Blue (PANTONE 18-3949)


The Wisdom by Smart Homes for Living Western Australia. 

“A scintillating, polar opposite to Placid Blue that adds confidence and vivacity when mixed with other bold colours.”

Why keep striking colours inside? If you’re brave enough, put a dark blue accent on the elevation of your home.
