Tangerine Tango, Solar Power, Cockatoo, Cabaret… these are only a few of the names given to 2012’s spring home and fashion color palette. It all starts with those famous designers way up at the top and then trickles on down to us laymen.
I do LOVE color but I honestly never knew how these seasonal colors were birthed until recently when a friend directed me towards Pantone. Apparently this is the place to hit if you are looking for what is “in” with color each year.
I’ve never considered myself to be a stylish person but I do have particular tastes and I definitely lean towards more color than less color. While ‘Tangerine Tango’ and ‘Solar Power’ have never made their appearance in my home I do happen to have a lot of gold and orange on my walls. And last month I refinished my desk in a color very similar to ‘Cockatoo’ – so maybe for this year at least I can be called trendy.
P.S. Trina and I are planning to blog about some of our own personal home décor soon!
