2012 Color Forecast – Earthy Origins of Primary Palettes

December 13th, 2011 · Leave a Comment

The 40 hues in Sherwin-Williams’ colormix 2012 forecast stay close to home with earth-inspired color family groupings in shades of reds, blues, greens and neutrals.  Here are highlights regarding the hues featured in Sherwin-Williams’ colormix 2012 forecast.

Reds Burn Brightly

This saturated palette isn’t a single red, but a deep gradation of fuchsias, red-oranges, violets and delicate pinks.

Blues Not Washed Out

This soothing palette celebrates a pair of functional and treasured blues: denim and water.

Greens Firmly Planted

This eclectic palette focuses on greens that are lush, moody and complex.

Neutrals Provide Balance

Raw materials continue to influence color trends, especially the more subtle hues.

A color palette doesn’t need to stray far from its roots to make a big design impact, according to Judith Sisler Johnston, allied member, ASID, and president of Sisler Johnston Interior Design.

“The company’s color experts drew inspiration from fashion-forward color-washing and ombré dyeing techniques to experiment with color values and hues within color families to create four vibrant palettes for its annual forecast. They also embraced the sustainable landscape, which has become an enduring influence in all aspects of décor and design.”

With so many shades of color to choose from, Sisler Johnston recommends consulting with a professional, licensed interior designer before beginning any interior design project, including do-it-yourself endeavors. It can be a valuable investment to have an expert review the plan and provide recommendations.
