Pantone Fall 2017 Color Forecast

Once again, the change of seasons is upon us and the ladies at Island Cove have interpreted the Fall 2017 Pantone color forecast for beading enthusiasts. There are 10 hues in total, and we're presenting them in five cool combinations. Drop by the shop and check out our collection of Czech and Japanese seed beads, colorful cords and leathers, seashell beads, and more in the colors of the season.

According to Pantone, the Fall 2017 color palette is “bookended by a dynamic Grenadine red and a tawny Autumn Maple, the color palette for Fall 2017 leans more to warmth, “ says Eiseman. “While comforting, enveloping colors and ease are crucial to the seasonal feeling, standout shades include a pale pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime, and a bright Marina blue. These hues add a striking touch when paired with the classic autumnal shades of Navy Peony, Neutral Gray, Butterrum and Tawny Port.”
