AKDO’s Official Autumn 2018 Color Trend Report


A change of season often signals a refresh – whether in interiors, fashion, or otherwise – and a new color palette is typically the best jumping-off point. Each Autumn, we see certain colors make their way back into the spotlight; from rich jewel-tones like sapphire and emerald, to berries and glistening metals. This year, Pantone’s Fashion Color Trend Report for Fall/Winter 2018 provided AKDO all the necessary inspiration for establishing an on-trend, yet timeless selection of products to ensure your interiors showcase the best in color, whether you choose a color-pop or a neutral hued surface. 1) Pantone 18-5025 Queztal Green: A deep elegant blue-green hue suggestive of rich plumage / Matches AKDO’s Lagoon
