You don’t have to wait until spring to show your love for all things nature-inspired — tribal accessories and warm earth tones have been hot ever since Pantone delivered nine color palettes for 2017. Inspired by the blending of cultural elements, such as Native American textiles and a Turkish kilim rug, this unique palette is all about the pairing of bold jewel colors with softer earth tones. When combined with metallic BFFs, blush pink and wood furniture, this chic color palette is pretty much unstoppable. Whether you’re going for a few little colorful accents or a bold statement rug, you can’t go wrong with taking a few notes from the Native Instincts Pantone palette. Scroll on for 18 inspiring ways to bring the colors into your own home.



1. Kilim Kitchen: If you have a wish list of dream items you’re dying to add to your home, you’ll want to add “kitchen rug” to it. The color scheme is eclectic, but the tassels and thin rug height make it a gorg addition to any style of kitchen. (via Emily Henderson)


2. Fresh and Modern: For an instant and affordable update, throw down a large area rug right in the middle of the kitchen. This kilim version, bursting with shades of tangerine, charcoal and persimmon, will give your room a pop of personality. (via L’Apartment Living)


3. Hot Pink Kilim: Desperately seeking a colorful kitchen? Cue this vibrant Moroccan rug that boasts shades of hot pink, orange and violet. Update the cabinetry with a coat of paint in a complementary hue to help balance out the space. (via A Lovely Lark)



4. Handmade Accents: Opt for a colorful geometric rug that takes up a good chunk of floor space, and that features no more than three colors in the palette. The rest of the room should be fairly neutral or pull colors from the largest piece to turn that dining area into an A+ interior design moment. (via The Design Files)


5. Dark Blue: Whether you find them at an estate sale or picked them up in your fave flea market, baskets hanging on the wall look totally fab in any dining room. Don’t be afraid to go bold with a teal wall color — the earthy tones and wood furniture will pull it all together. (via Smile and Wave)


6. Rich Tones: Color stories in the Native Instincts palette shouldn’t be too matchy-matchy. Instead, let them blend together for a chic, fresh vibe. A vivid kilim rug feels right at home under a modern dining table and a glam-tastic copper pendant light. (via Lauren Kelp)



7. Mud Cloth Chic: Talk about swoon worthy — this little powder room is seriously rocking every pattern under the sun. Trendy black and white mud cloth wallpaper is the bomb, especially when you add rustic baskets, a Persian rug and a leather hanging mirror. (via Amber Interiors)


8. Rustic Spa Vibes: Weathered wood and a tasseled rug are pretty much must-haves in the Native Instincts palette. Pair them with an indoor plant and gold hardware for the ultimate relaxation station. Vintage clawfoot tub optional. (via The Curtis Casa)


9. Fresh and Modern: Throw a little texture into the mix to instantly elevate any bathroom. This colorful rug makes a statement without distracting from a mostly minimal look. Details like leather drawer handles and black hardware keep it looking modern. (via Amber Interiors)



10. Hang Time: Give your reading nook a touch of rustic flair with a trendy hanging chair and a cozy fur throw. These dreamy pinks and taupes play perfectly against white walls and a Persian rug. (via Design Sponge)


11. Texture Rich: Tribal patterns and earthy tones pair perfectly with a leather sofa, wood mid-century pieces and a healthy dose of faux fur. Partner the Native Instincts palette with natural pieces — like this upholstered bench — and metallics for a super chill living room. (via Thoughts from Alice)


12. Blushing Pink: Mixing a neutral sofa with boho elements like peachy pillows and tasseled throw blankets provides a great balance for the space and a look that’s not too shabby. Seal the deal with fresh flowers and plants — a must for every living room. (via Old Brand New)



13. Pinky Chic: If you spend way too many long hours in front of a computer, it’s time to make your office as cool and pretty as you are. Start with a pink desk chair, a colorful kilim rug and a massive indoor plant for maximum productive vibes. (via SF Girl by Bay)


14. Graphic Workspace: Sweet, simple and sophisticated — those black pinboards in this workspace are #officegoals. A peach, purple and brown kilim rug brings the whole space together and a fresh white desk is ready to inspire your next great idea. (via Amber Interiors)


15. Work Nook: A colorful rug might be the pop of color your home office is begging for. If you’re struggling with creative block, maybe it’s time to ditch the minimalist look and take a walk on the wild side. (via Avenue)



16. Moroccan Touches: Two colors that were meant to be together: Black helps balance out the sweetness of the pastel pink, while piles of patterned throw pillows add visual interest. Looking for a sneaky way to update your headboard? Take a tip from this pretty bedroom and drape a colorful blanket over the top. (via Style Me Pretty)

17. Rugged Headboard: Before you go full-on cabin couture, opt for a rough wood headboard and go a little crazy with a bold patterned rug and textured bedding. Keep the rest of the decor soft and earthy to tone down the rustic vibe and create a sense of luxury. (via In Honor of Design)


18. Rustic Chic: When it comes to comfort colors, gray and pink are the ultimate in cozy. All-white bedding gives you a clean slate for your very own tribal-inspired dream bedroom. (via Loom and Kiln)
