The gurus of home fashions will forecast the colors for the coming year. The movement in color will be based on all things of nature that inhabit the Earth. We realize the need to sustain Mother Earth for future generations. Neutrals will become warmer as they reflect the sun shining on them. Their golden tint will include everything from the color of a wheat field to a piece of driftwood on the beach. The shades of red and orange will show marvelous variations. Think of a ripe red apple. If you look closely at it, you will see more than one color in the peel. Expect to see these natural color variations. Blues for 2012 reflect the color of water as the world works to preserve this valuable natural resource. Stand on the shore and observe the colors of ocean currents and rushing waves.
Lastly, greens are and will always be the color of nature. The movement for sustainability of the earth-“going green”- takes its name from this color. The beautiful greens in the unspoiled places on earth such as a rainforest and under the sea will dominate in 2012. This year, take your cue from nature and look outside your window for inspiration. Mother Nature still reigns as the best color consultant around!
