Soothing. Tranquil. Refreshing. These are words I would use to describe this 2017 color trend from Pantone they call Niagara. It’s a personal favorite of mine and I can’t wait to see what designers come up with for this beautiful slate blue. I’ve already found a lot of really good interior and fashion designs that include ‘Niagara’ in their palettes. Check it out…

For a dramatic dining room, paint your walls with a smoky blue. Add a distressed wood table and black chairs with just a touch of white accents to finish off the look.

This dusty blue tone pairs well with black accents. This black plate wall art display is stunning!

Oh, my. What a lovely maxi dress. Such a beautiful shade of blue!

Add a ‘Niagara’ blue sofa to a white interior for a cloud-like ethereal feel.

Or, add a soothing touch to a stone terrace with ‘Niagara’ table cloths.

Sometimes, just a small amount of ‘Niagara’ is all you need to add that soothing feel to your interior. Consider some throw pillows in this dusty blue tone in a mostly white room.

Gray rooms are also a great background to show off this smoky blue tone. I really like the Niagara, Black, White and Grey combo of this bedroom design.

If you really want to embrace the tranquility of ‘Niagara’, consider a mosaic tile wall in this dusty shade of blue.

Beach-style interiors really benefit from the addition of ‘Niagara’ accents. So nice!
