Using data from a collection of 40 million images and their 400 million all-time downloads, Shutterstock analyzed which popular colors are set to dominate design in the coming months.

Color impacts everything: web and graphic design, fashion fads, even home decor. Some of the trends we saw this year, like a change from natural palettes to gray tones, reflected similar trends seen on Fashion Week runways and in home design. Others were influenced by global events like the World Cup, the continued rise of social media, and Pantone’s Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid.
