It’s that gross time of year when everything is brown and the weather can be nice one day to frigid the next. Valentine’s Day can be something to look forward to, but not for everyone pushing many even further into a winter funk. What to do? Let’s look at the hot color trends for 2012!
Girly pastels are leading the charge this year both in the fashion industry and the interior decorating industry. Look for Blush Pink, Mint Green, and Robin’s Egg Blue to be popping up on walls and dresses alike. If shopping for specific colors, look to the Benjamin Moore “Enlightenment” line of paints which extend upon the Pantone company that sets the new color trends each year.
In the Enlightment line, it suggests the egg is representative of rebirth, so orbital objects will be seen in decorating pieces. Futuristic designs, mirrored images, tones used to set the mood, light versus dark, etc. all play into the overall look of a room. If this sounds a little “out there” for your home, fear not as Benjamin Moore has three other “lines” that might aline closer to your actual lifestyle.
