It's that time again!
the color experts...are forecasting for 2013.
I found the quote below from Pantone's Executive Director Leitrice Eiseman very interesting:
"In order to create the "magic" in the marketplace that ultimately leads to sales, colors for 2013 will need to coax and cajole, soothe or astonish, renew and replenish. At the same time, there will be the consumer’s expectation of practicality – which colors will have staying power and can be relied upon as a steadying influence in unsteady times. Skillfully balanced color palettes that play to their practical side, while satisfying their aspirations, hopes and needs for something novel, will remain key to enticing the would-be consumer or client."
I am a color addict....I'll admit it.
The quote above simply inspires me to research color even further.
Color was my absolute favorite subject (next to art history & antiquities)
when I was attending Art School to earn my
Interior Design Degree.
Color is simply something I would find difficult to live without.
How about you?
What do you think of Pantone and their forecasts and reviews?
I have to tell you...
they are certainly spot on so far if my visit to
World Market in Las Vegas is any insight into the matter.
TANGERINE & TURQUOISE
were ruling the decor runway!
(Not to mention minky greige.)

I was most impressed by the sheer amount of photos that represent
each and every one of the color groups!
I'd love to hear your opinion on colors and trends....
...do you pay attention to them?
Are you tempted by trend?
do you throw this stuff into the garbage and just do what you love?
I find it all very interesting....can't wait to hear your take on this!
