2012 Color Forecast

October 22, 2011 by · 1 Comment 

With only a couple months left to the year, it is time to start planning for 2012.  I am very excited to share the “2012 Color Forecast” with you.  There are 4 key colors, and this will be the first of a series so that I can share in-depth about each color.

NEUTRALS
 Neutral is a color that represents “trust.”  We see neutrals in nature, such as pebbles, bark, and sand.  Maybe the place that you enjoy relaxing the most is in nature – the park, the mountains, or possibly the beach.  Now, think about that special place as you read this!

The grays will be warmer & combined with other neutral colors, such as tan, cream, and black.  We have seen yellow used as an accent color in fashion, but now we will also see it in interiors as well.  It will be combined with either beige or gray.

A lot of texture, such as wood grains and wicker will be used to add dimension to the design.  Birch bark & bamboo will also be part of the design to bring in nature.  Natural fibers such as linen and organic cotton in neutrals will be used for sustainability purposes.

Did you think about that special place as you read this, and how to fit it into your decor for 2012?!
