In part 1 of our 2012 Color Guild Color Forecast posted on January 16th, we shared the Color Guild thoughts on colors from the reds, neutrals, and purples that have moved into the limelight for 2012.  All of the colors in the palette are influenced by nature, comfort, calm and harmony.  These themes, as mentioned, are not new but are showing in fresh new ways and in unexpected places!

In part 2 of the Color Guild’s 2012 Color Forecast we examine the blues, greens and yellows.

Color Is... 477 Ocean Cruise

Blues are soft and dusty, 477 Ocean Cruise is a perfect example of this hue. They are as comforting as an ocean breeze and serene as a calm day making them perfect for bathrooms and spas. Here they are paired with gray and beige marble tiles.

Color Is... 751 Green Glass & 932 Sun Splashed

Nothing is closer to nature than green and for the most part greens are warmed with yellow like 751 Green Glass. Or they can be soft sages or bright limes that coordinate with deep olive and bronze hues. Here green is shown with a tropical orange, 932 Sun Splashed.

Gold paired with Brown is still high on the list of best selling colors.

Yellow is a cheery hue, toned down to gold they are the core of many patterns, especially present in area rugs. Here gold is paired with brown, certainly not new, but it still high on the list of best sellers.
