Have you checked out the Pantone spring 2017 color selections yet? Is it exciting or depressing thinking about spring in January? Personally, I’ve been loving all the warmer, foggy weather we’ve had this January and am not over winter (yet, anyway). But I love thinking about bright colors for the season ahead, too.
Here are the Pantone spring 2017 selections. You can read more about them over here.
I think it’s a pretty solid set of colors. Of course, I like some of them more than others, but there’s so much potential here for refreshing spring palettes. Over the next couple months, I’ll be highlighting a few of my favorites here, providing inspiration for home decor, DIY, fashion, and much more.
Today I’m highlighting Island Paradise. If you’ve known me for any length of time, it should come as no surprise that I really love this color. What’s not to love about this bright blue? For my Greenery inspiration post, I put together a Greenery shot for Instagram. It’s been so well received I had to create a few more.
I chose a very similar color for our guest bedroom. Island Paradise is perfect for creating a calming sleeping space in any home. It’s versatile for master bedrooms, kid bedrooms, and guest bedrooms. This paint color is Noel from True Value. Behr’s Paradise Sky is another great option.
Clearly, Crate and Barrel is already ahead of the game, too. Check out their aqua kitchen spread from a recent catalog. Generally, I like white and red for kitchen spaces, but this spread may have sold me on aqua.
You know I couldn’t talk about Island Paradise without mentioning turquoise and red. If you like bold combinations, you have to pair Island Paradise with red.
I’ll be sharing more details about how I made this mason jar bokeh photo closer to Valentine’s Day.
Speaking of mason jars, have you seen the mason jar decor line at World Market? Gorgeous Island Paradise shade!

They sell blue mason jars, too, like the one in my picture above. You can also find colored mason jars at Target, Michaels, and Food52.

Of course, I had to find some Island Paradise on Etsy, too!

Thanks for this post. It’s cheered me up. There is something very soothing about that shade of blue.
I’m so glad to hear it! It’s definitely a soothing shade.
Lovely! I pretty much always love blues. It kind of makes me jealous to see Crate and Barrel and World Market, though – neither are in Hawaii and don’t really ship here.
Thanks! So frustrating!
