Color Trends for 2012
From hues that inspire hope and optimism to shades that create relaxation and comfort, the state of the economy is affecting our day-to-day lives, and the new color trends are no exception.
Rich, jewel-toned purples and amethysts recently attempted to spring into the market but never fully caught on past the runway. Last year’s bold and regal shades have been scaled back. The new-and-improved purple is a soft and timeless tone of pale violet layered with gray. No doubt the newer, more sophisticated hues are around to stay. Known for their calming properties, light and soothing shades of purple are 2009’s fresh approach to calm.
