16 Ways to Incorporate Pantone’s “Resourceful” Palette into Your Home

When Pantone looked into their crystal ball of home decor and pulled out their decor trends for 2018, all the palettes were bold, intense, and beautiful. The Resourceful Palette combines warm and cool tones of blue and orange for such a mesmerizing effect that, according to Pantone, “You just can’t avoid looking at it.” Whether you’re going for a few bold accessories or you’re ready to pop open those paint cans, scroll on for 16 inspiring ways to bring these vivid colors into your own home.

1. Orange Crush: Orange can stimulate activity and add a burst of energy to any space, making it ideal for a home office. Kick-start your work day with pops of orange accessories, wall art, and maybe even paint in the shelves. (via IBA Design Associates)

2. Retro Vibes: Blue and orange look lovely together, but you don’t have to go with the boldest paint possible. A soft sky blue is surprisingly elegant and modern when paired with an orange sofa, pastel pink pillows, and lots of rustic texture. (via Urban Outfitters)

3. Nautical Touches: The blue pom-poms on these sweet, simple, and sophisticated nursery curtains are *everything.* Placing an orange chair against bold graphic patterns keeps the decor lively and ready to inspire your next great reading session. (via Design Dazzle)

4. Flaunt It: Have you ever considered going back to those teal and orange hues that were so popular in the ’70s? Before you cringe, check out this fun dining nook, complete with Eames chairs and mid-century furniture. (via Laurie Rubin)

5. Opposites Attract: It’s totally okay to embrace this color palette in tiny ways. After all, Pantone comes out with new palettes every year. If you’re still rocking last year’s pastels, bring in a quick refresh with blue and orange throw pillows. (via BHG)

6. Gorgeous Graphics: Major pattern points go to this bold AF couch. The orange ikat, quirky koi fish patterns, and blue chevron couch come together in a way that totally works. (via The Glam Pad)

7. Boho Accessories: While you’re busy bringing in blue and orange accents, incorporate another modern trend — boho textures — with wooden furniture and handmade ceramics. Blue walls will make those textures pop in a majorly good way. (via Target)

8. Graphic Patterns: Pastels look hip and trendy with punchy accents like blue and orange. Anchor the space with neutral furniture and go crazy with cartoon-like patterns. (via BHG)

9. Minimalist Colors: This modern bedroom is a beautiful example of how versatile the Resourceful Palette is. A blue half wall is *the* perfect complement to an orange task lamp and white bedding. We’re loving how the end result is almost nautical but in a totally fresh and trendy way. (via INT2 Architecture)

10. Sneaky Accents: Forget painting the walls. The easiest way to experiment with a new color palette is to pull out the spray paint and dress up a thrifted bench or stool. (via Decouvrir Design)

11. Country Living: The different shades of blue in this room are totally on point, but it’s that orange sofa that really brings the whole space together. Pair bold chairs with white walls and graphic throw pillows and you’ve got a seating arrangement guests will never want to leave. (via Vintage Revivals)

12. Big Blue: This bold kid’s room is wearing those bright shades in the best way possible. And who would’ve thought matching the wall paint to the headboard would look so chic? (via Elle Decor)

13. Pull Up a Seat: Ah yes, a blue velvet armchair in your reading breakfast nook ensures you never have a bad morning. Whether you’re settling down with a glass of wine or a mug of coffee, this bright and cheerful corner comes together beautifully with luxe textures and an orange throw blanket. (via Livet Hemma)

14. Stripes Ahoy: Well that settles it; striped ceilings are officially the coolest thing ever. Take a cue from this kiddo’s nursery and pair soft teal walls with playful orange accessories for all the happy feels. (via In Jackie’s Shoes)

15. Jungle Glam: Monkey wallpaper, blue cushions, and an orange desk chair make this space look positively luxurious. Plus, who can resist a blue daybed piled high with matching pillows? (via House of Hackney)

16. Tangerine and Cerulean: The bright blue bedding in this guest room earns its clout when paired with a citrusy punch of orange. The pops of color also add a ton of personality to an otherwise cool-toned bedroom. (via Domino)
