18 PANTONE COLOUR TRENDS:
COLOUR NO. 2 – MEADOWLARK PANTONE: 13-0646
In 2017 we had Primrose Yellow, this year we have a clearer, brighter yellow ‘Meadowlark’ There are many instances when Meadowlark tends to be confused with the colour lemon, however; it’s a much warmer yellow, think tones of a juicy, sweet, ripe pineapple flesh.
Found in the animal kingdom, look no further than the ‘Western Meadowlark’ Umm so I wonder where ‘Pantone’ got it’s inspiration for the name of this colour?! This ‘bird’ was ‘here’ first and shows the colour to perfection.
“The bold and lively Meadowlark, a confident and outgoing bright yellow shade highlights the spring 2018 season, glistening with joy and illuminating the world around us.”
Eiseman notes “Regardless of what industry, yellow is a beacon of light. If you’re going to put something on your web site or in a window display, you know yellow is going to draw the eye. And nobody gets ignored wearing yellow.”
It might take some bravery to do an entire room in this colour, so take a note out of nature’s book and as with the ‘Western Meadowlark’ mix this colour against neutrals such as white and shades of grey…it works beautifully. Who needs a straight line even? I’m such a perfectionist that I struggle with this one and yet it actually works in its own way:
Failing all-out room coverage, consider some ‘statement’ doors:

Of course it is much easier to use as an ascent and it will happily sits beside a whole range of colours, or it could be used just on its own to brighten up a monochromatic or neutral colour scheme.
I love this clever pairing:
