2011 Color Forecast

As we head into the new year here are some fun colors that will continue to grow in momentum over the remainder of the year:

"The hot colors for the home in 2011 cover the  s p e c t r u m  from the depth of black to the subtle optimism of yellow" -Decor Magazine

Below is a list of colors Decor thoughtfully describes to be the IT factor this year complemented by the way I envision their color description.

Decor's 2011 Color List:

Mustard, German not French, with a touch of gray:

A very soft khaki with gray:
Example: the wall paint

Tricia Guild Fabric (the background color)

The grayed purple is richer than lilac. It is the dusty purple of city sunsets with an underlying depth:

I love these doors!

A blue that takes a riff on nautical themes with tints of green and gray. It's a grayed city blue that pairs well with black and navy:

I love how calming this blue is! When I redo my bedroom this is my #1 choice!

Pale yellow is slightly grayed giving it a sense of substance:

Spring leafy green with a small D r O p of gray:

Soft and satiny orange, not bright, with a hazy gray dusting:

I hope you liked my perception of the 2011 color forecast! I love every color...but my favorite is the blue-gray! Hope you enjoy!

Do you think my visions were accurate? Would you have chosen a different color based on their description?
