Each December, Pantone publishes its color of the year, which I usually am prompt to report.  They also release each season’s colors.  Pantone mostly dictates to the fashion industry but there is usually a quick trickle down into interior and home fashions.  The colors we see in our fashion magazines we also want to see in our shelter magazines and on the shelves of our stores.

I recently took a look at the Fall colors to see an overview of what is currently showing now that we are already in to September and then a look at the Spring projections.  I found them to be very similar, naturally but the subtle differences do reflect the change in the season:

Spring has left out the browns and greys and has a more crisp yellow and blue tones.

Do you pay close attention to the seasons’ colors or do you stick to your favorites?
