The fashion colour report for spring 2017 was released in conjunction with New York Fashion Week. The top 10 shades featured in the report were seen on the runway, and this time, the trendy colours are a mixture of earthiness, vividness, and brightness. Not only are these 10 colours favoured within the fashion industry, they’ve inspired home design enthusiasts and interior designers to incorporate the colours as well. Find out how you can incorporate the trendy colours into your home this coming New Year.




The classic denim-like blue gives off a cooling vibe. Make your kitchen’s atmosphere more relaxing by adding this easy on the eyes colour to your kitchen island and cabinet.


Primrose Yellow


Add a little bit of youthful enthusiasm in your living room with this popping hue. Bring in furniture, decorative items and even flowers in primrose yellow and complement them with other things in colours like black, light grey or brown for a mix-and-match look.


Lapis Blue


This intense blue shade instantly puts energy to any room. Add some sexiness and old Hollywood glam to your bathroom by painting your wall in lapis blue, with complementing gold frame mirror, vintage gold-tone wall sconces, and marble sink.




Bring your dining room to life with this lively red-based orange colour. Add a flame coloured rug or other decorative pieces. You can even use small fruits or other food in similar tone as centrepiece.


Island Paradise


Turn your living room into a tranquil paradise with this refreshing cool blue green shade. Add aqua coloured furniture and complement it with white walls along with gold tone coffee table, side table, mirror and lamps. Place some pattern cushions and a quirky shaped rug.


Pale Dogwood


The peaceful pink shade gives off an innocent vibe, as well as a soothing effect. Paint your wall or bring in furniture in this lovely colour, match with wood flooring, coffee table and cabinet.




If you’re a nature lover, how about including a little bit of natural greenery into your garage? Transform your bland looking, stuffy garage into a fresh and cool spot. Bring in furniture in other trendy vibrant colours such as primrose yellow, flame and pink yarrow.


Pink Yarrow


Impress your drinking buddies with an eye-catching home bar in this bold and whimsical hot pink shade.




Considered the key neutral for spring, this earthy colour is perfect for your study room as it helps you to focus.




Kale is a lush green hue similar to greenery but slightly darker. Transform your bathroom into an industrial 1920s Gatsby-inspired bathroom with kale-shaded tiles, traditional bathtub, vintage lamp, and glass doors in wooden frame.
