Pantone's Fall 2012 Colours, Fashion, and Paint
Pantone's Fall 2012 fashion colour report gives us more chocolate brown, yellowed green, mustard yellow, and spicy pink, colours we loved last year. It brings in the deep orange, true blue, grey, and lilac we've been hearing about in 2012 colour predictions in general. There's an ultramarine green and a rosy beige that could update an office or beach house beautifully.
What's all this got to do with painting and decorating? What's the connection between fashion and home decor?
Simple. Makers of furniture and home decorating items will be using these tasty colours, too. We're seeing ultramarine and tangerine in sofas, cushions, duvets, and kitchen goods. Lilacs and greys are coming together in elegant living rooms and rose beige is turning up in upholstery.
This palette is what the fashionable home will be wearing this season -- maybe not on the walls, but in the next vase or picture frame you fall in love with.
