Color Trends Spring 2013

We are just now hitting the holidays season for 2012, so it may seem premature to think about 2013.  But now is the time to start ordering supplies for upcoming Pantone Spring Colors 2013.

Combining the bright pops of colors that will draw attention with natural, neutral tones will be a huge hit.

The tender shoot greens are nice light greens that represent all the new growth that occurs in the Spring.

Grayed Jade is a more subtle, calming green that is perfect for a neutral tone with these pops of colors!

Emerald is a vibrant green that brings about a sense of well-being.

Pantone recommends designs that would combine all 3 greens into a balanced design of vibrant tones and calming tones!  A monochromatic design with these shades are sure to be popular!

African Violet is meant to be a statement color/piece.  And could be quite intriguing when combined with the bright Poppy Red.

Poppy Red is described as sensual, and seductive.

"Nectarine, a bright, effervescent citrus orange with coral undertones, provides a tangy burst of flavor while cheerful Lemon Zest brings out a piquant taste with its refreshing, spritely greenish cast."   (http://www.pantone.com/pages/fcr.aspx?pg=21006&ca=4)
