Introducing, today’s Color Trend: Sharkskin! More specifically, Pantone 17-3914. Today’s color was selected from the Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2016.

This gunmetal gray color pairs well with white and warm brown wood tones. It makes an excellent design feature in this vintage-styled bathroom.

This particular gray hue works perfectly in modern kitchen spaces. It’s the perfect neutral to show off this beautiful view!

Add ‘Sharkskin’ to your bedroom space with a metal bed. Balance out the palette with a bright yellow accent color.

This color works well to ground a light, airy color palette. The ‘Sharkskin’ upholstered bench in this breakfast nook is a perfect example of this.

If you’re going for a rustic look in your bedroom, try adding a ‘Sharkskin’ accent wall behind the bed and finish it off with a gray, reclaimed wood headboard.
