Color trends for 2012: With some optimism on the horizon, colors in 2012 will enjoy a vibrancy translated through the use of accents in décor and clothing. Naturals will dominate the color landscape, with grays becoming more and more popular, especially with the vibrant color accents. Consumers will look to their cultural heritage and ancestral roots to discover colors they can live with for a longer period of time. What I like to call the “peas, corn, & carrot” color combination is timeless and translates a feeling of comfort and stability. To sum up, 2012 will be a colorful year to get rooted in our homes and feel comfortable, while enjoying optimistic color accents. – Doty Horn”

Colour In Context: Scarlet NCS S 0585-Y80R | In Mix Trends Spring Summer 2011… ‘Red has a presence with strong undercurrents of feminine appeal…understatedly bold yet rich in universal appeal. It’s a colour that has a striking presence when mixed with a neutral landscape, it stands out but melds in effortlessly. This is a statement of the red family’s constant lifeline into the world of colour, exciting and nurturing at the same time,’ says Doty Horn, founding director of design and trend forecasting company ColorVoyant.”
