Pantone's 12 Spring Colors for 2012

The color trend correlation between fashion design and interior design has always intrigued me. Typically, European fashion design and color trends guide the rest of the design world in forthcoming seasons. This spring we are noticing the brightest and boldest of hues…and they are not isolated, but combined for a very fun and explosive aesthetic.

I am particularly attracted to the trend of bright pink in interiors. A little pop of bright pink goes a long way and can give a whimsical effect or a traditional tone, but always energizes a space.  The other wonderful attribute of bright pink is that it pairs so well with an equally intense color, such as the Pantone colors {shown above} Tangerine, Solar Power, or Driftwood.
