2012 Warms Up

While Pantone have chosen Tangerine Tango to be their Colour of the Year for 2012,  Dulux opted for a lively juicy red but Crown paints have launched a whole new colour palette, New Directions ,which is intended to encourage us to mix traditional colour groupings together i.e pastels with neons, brights with neutrals, neutrals with pastels (but all still under pinned by neutral grey). So it looks like 2012, Apocalypse or not, is going to be a colourful year with plenty of trending hues emerging from the warm side of the spectrum.

Back blogging on January 5th

It will be interesting to see what iconic Danish brand Vipp will choose for 2012 as their 2011 colour was ‘rising red’ – I will tell you as soon as they announce it but I have a feeling we may see something with a violet tone to it.

Anyway, lots to look forward to but most of all I would like to take this opportunity to thank all subscribers and readers of my blog for being so supportive and jumping in with brilliant comments throughout the year. As all bloggers know, receiving feedback is what it’s all about, so thank you all very much indeed and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and I look forward to catching up with you around the 5th of January 2012 for another colourful year.

  1. It’s always interesting to see the different colours of the year and the reasoning behind them. Although I tend to not jump on the colour bandwagon – whether it’s trendy or not, my favourite colour is always purple 🙂

    Merry Colourful Christmas to you 🙂 See you in 2012!

  2. Happy New Year Niki!
    Thank you for these insights into the chosen colour trends of 2012. I wasn’t too sure of ‘tangerine tango’ but having looked at it used in the fashion photos with other colours and especially when it is toned down I am beginning to like it 🙂
