Pantone-Approved Spring Colors to Outfit Your Housewares Assortment With
Pantone’s done it again! To kick off this spring season, we’ve rounded up the official colors of spring (via the 2017 from Pantone® View Home + Interiors) to help you outfit your store’s assortment with housewares items your shoppers are certain to love.
“We are all familiar with consumers’ constant desire to see something new, yet they still want, in many cases, to have somewhat of a familiar comfort level,” said Eiseman. “We have to assess our customers’ aspirations by using credible forecasts as a guide to invigorated color design palettes that will inform and encourage new color directions. The question is: What can we do to tweak our color palettes to make consumers stop and take notice?”
