Colour Forecast:  for Fall 2012


Turquoise has proven staying power in fashion for apparel and interiors. This trendy blue reflects serenity and well-being and is loved for it’s soothing tranquility when paired with soft neutrals, and for its bold showiness when accented with lime green and citrus yellow. Turquoise continues to add excitement as an important trend colour for seasons to come.


Citrus lime, deep emerald, or spring leaf, green is growing strong and forecasted to gain strength in upcoming seasons. Green is a restful and balanced colour symbolizing freshness and optimism. Pair with gold and orange to create an exotic energetic palette, accent with soft lilac and plum for romance, or modernize with bold black and white.


Tangerine, carrot, apricot; orange is this year’s biggest colour trend. Orange is a power colour known to stimulate creativity and positive energy. Pair this warm vibrant colour with teal blue and yellow for this season’s most dynamic colour statement.

Refresh, energize, and wake up any setting with bold, vivid colour.
