Colour trends 2012

Posted: 06 Feb 2012 12:14 AM PST

Morning friends! Ready for a new week? Thought I'd share some colour inspiration with you today thanks to Dulux who sent me a a beautiful and inspiring ColourFutures 12 book which introduces key colour palette trends for 2012.

The colour of the year is said to be a vibrant and warm shade of red, perfect for both accent and feature walls. Red is a powerful mood lifter and held in high regard world wide, so it makes sense that this colour takes center stage.

ColourFutures 12 also lists five key colour trends, I'll feature two today and the rest next week, so look out for that! The first trend is Delicate Mix, I particularly love this colour palette with it's subtle and understated yet luxurious feel. Gorgeous corals, nude pinks and elegant neutrals paired with hints of forged iron steel, copper, wood and polished concrete.

Another trend is Living Scrapbook which reflects our current tendencies towards social media, sharing, collecting and the need to be more quirky and reflect our selves. It's a balanced, warm and charming palette with hints of craft paper and mature pastels. Modern yet slightly non-mainstream.
