How to Incorporate the Pantone Palette “Graphic Imprints” into Your Home
When Pantone released their nine 2017 color palettes, the Graphic Imprints palette was the only one they described as “great fun.” The palette starts with a black and white base, and then goes all out with bold, vibrant colors like hot pink, orange, yellow and blue. If you’re not feeling the pastels anymore, the Graphic Imprints palette might be just what you need: Think color-blocked accessories, geometric throw rugs and plenty of striped patterns. Scroll through to see how these 18 rooms rock this bold color palette in every room in the house.
1. Pattern Play: A bold black and white gallery wall sets the scene for a seriously colorful living room. Plus, who says navy and black don’t get along? This dark blue couch pairs perfectly with patterned pillows, a rattan ottoman and a colorful area rug. (via The Everygirl)
2. Modern Colors: Nothing transforms a space like a good rug and a solid selection of throw pillows. A bold combo of colors like pink, orange and purple is great for adding the perfect pop to a cheerful living space. (via Emily Henderson)
3. Hollywood Glam: The Graphic Imprints palette is black and white based, which instantly gives your living room a glam look. A monochromatic palette also becomes the perfect place to play around with one colorful accent color like hot pink or bright yellow. (via Domino)
4. Subtle Accents: A mostly white kitchen brings in the drama with black cabinets and a checkered backsplash. Add open shelving and accessorize your heart out with orange and yellow dishes or a set of bold pendant lamps. (via Domino)
5. Seriously Fun: Anyone else totally digging that hand wallpaper underneath the kitchen bar? This playful kitchen looks fresh and modern thanks to white cabinets, white countertops and cheeky yellow barstools. (via A Beautiful Mess)
6. Brilliant Geo: Incorporating bold color into your kitchen can be completely temporary. Dip your toe into a new palette (literally) with nothing more than a new throw rug. Open shelving gives you the option to add a few dishes in new colors whenever you feel like switching things up. (via Domino)
7. Bold Florals: Graphic doesn’t always mean stripes: This dining room manages to rock a bright pink floral wallpaper without looking granny-chic. Black and white art, a modern dining table and plenty of gold accessories make a seriously fab room that you’ll want to use for parties every single weekend. (via A Beautiful Mess)
8. Hot Pink Seating: The best part about a black and white palette is how versatile it is when it comes to picking your accent color. If you love the preppy look, a striped bench pairs perfectly with hot pink Eames chairs. (via Domino)
9. Stripes Forever: Take a more subtle approach to the Graphic Imprints palette with a rustic wood table and a set of striped chairs boasting every color of the rainbow. If you’re lucky enough to have the space, hang two statement pendants instead of one chandelier for a more casual, playful look. (via My Domaine)
10. Mini Tiles: A streamlined wall of open shelves manages to provide a chic storage solution for this minimalist space. Tiny hexagon tiles and gold hardware give the bathroom a chic vibe. Now the only thing left is to hang up some hot pink or bright blue bath towels. (via Septembre)
11. Flower Power: Wowza, this graphic wallpaper takes the whole black-and-white scheme to a whole new level. The key to avoiding a snooze-fest in a minimally decked bathroom is a striking accent and maybe a gallery wall of colorful art pieces. (via My Domaine)
12. Vintage Touch: A whitewashed space makes for the ideal backdrop when going with a slightly busier decorative scheme like a striped tile floor and a vintage rug. Bonus: A mostly white room is practically an excuse to fill the rest of the space with plants and colorful towels without feeling like things are getting too cluttered. (via Luxe)
13. Neon Accessories: A colorful workspace is a happy workspace, right? Complement a minimal, white office with chic color-blocked accessories and a few black accent pieces to really nail the Graphic Imprints Pantone palette. (via Oh Happy Day)
14. Surfer Cool: Sometimes all you need is a killer gallery wall. Okay, and maybe a fluffy fur stool too. This workspace rocks all the colors in the palette with a key selection of art prints and a graphic surfboard. (via SF Girl by Bay)
15. Happy Workspace: A white desk and chair create a captivating backdrop for this preppy workspace, while coordinating wall art and a faux zebra rug complete the room. Keep a hot pink seat cushion on hand for those long work days… and maybe a giant cup of coffee too. (via Hannah Blackmore Photography)
16. Black and Yellow: Ooh la la, how chic is this black and white bedroom? Yellow wall art and a spiky snake plant lend a hint of warmth to the monochromatic elements of this fab space. (via Adore)
17. Peekaboo Green: Sometimes it pays off to have an accent color play a more subtle role, especially in the bedroom, where you want to create a serene and relaxing space. Here, a colorful headboard is just the right amount of pop in this pattern-rich black and white room. (via Apartment Therapy)
18. Fully Neon: Those other bedrooms feeling a little “light” to you? Go all out with dark, moody gray walls, a striped area rug and a rad duvet cover that has every single color from the Graphic Imprints palette. (via Hannah Blackmore Photography)
