Color Trends for Spring 2012

Mmmm, I love color.

Pantone is the expert on color. They are always on top of the newest, up and coming trendiest colors. So, let’s see what’s up over at Pantone.

“Consumers look to spring for renewed energy, optimism and the promise of a brighter day,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

These new “springy” up and coming colors include mixtures of hot neon colors with soft pastels, reminiscent of nature at its extremes (for example, a powerful sunset, the ocean sparkling at dusk with flashes of lightning in the distance), Bright and Sun Bleached Yellow paired with Dusty Oceanic Blue, Cairo Yellow, Crescent Moon, Mountain Stream, Prism Lilac, Terra Cotta, Harem Orange, and Neon Tangerine.

I am definitely a fan of these colors!!

Pantone even defines the manly colors for spring 2012:


If these fresh palettes, aren’t inspiring, I don’t know what is. :)
