In searching for the perfect colors to use for my Family Room re-d0, I started by perusing the websites of different color experts to see what they’ve forecasted for this year. When I came across Brentano Fabrics 2012 Color Trends it was love at first site. I knew these were the perfect color choices- and a sign from decor heaven-as they match the rug in my kitchen perfectly! Here’s how Brentano describes these colors.
Marine: A continuation from 2011, Marine is a navy that plays up the rich, jewel-toned aspect of the color while keeping true to its classic appeal.
Sprout: This bright, yellow-green shade is perfect for livening up an atmosphere. Use it for accent pieces to give interiors a fun, current twist.
Tangerine: A saturated orange with a touch of red, tangerine offers a fresh counterpart to sophisticated neutrals.
Paper White: 2011 saw a move from creamier neutrals to this “true white” that is pure, clean, and luxurious–the perfect basic to continue using in 2012
Graphite: While Brentano’s 2011 color forecast called for silvery, platinum hues, 2012 will see grays shifting to a darker charcoal that looks beautiful with colors (such as deep yellows and purples), or pairs perfectly with neutral shades.
Linen: This color looks beautiful as a crisp white or dyed a vibrant color, but also has a natural appeal in its unprocessed, raw form. Its comforting, clean feel works as a neutral, but also offers stunning warmth that makes it the perfect color for a subtle palette.
