Pantone + Pinterest = Inspiration

Perhaps you've heard the buzz about Pantone's new Spring 2012 Color Report.  I'm not crazy about "Tangerine Tango", the color of the year, but I do love some of the other hues they've chosen.  "Sodalite Blue" is my favorite of the bunch (no surprise there, it's a dark, rich, beautiful blue), and I also like the grouping of "Driftwood", "Cockatoo", and "Starfish".

What's Pinterest got to do with this?  Well, Pantone's lovely Spring 2012 colors inspired me to put together a mood board featuring a couple of my photographs.  And what better place to find stunning home decor elements than Pinterest?

What do you think, would you work with these colors in your home?

  1. Love that color it was the inspiration for my living room. I have to agree with you though on the Tangerine Tango it is not one of my favorites.

  2. Always great to see the latest color trends :O) There's a lid for every pot!

  3. Hmm, I don't know if I like these colors, but so glad you offered this information. Thank you!

  4. We can totally be friends, I love color. I think those photos fit right in. I love a lot of the 2012 color trends for this year. I don't mind the tangerine but I am a little surprised that pink is still in and I'm not a huge fan of margarita. It just doesn't sit well with me.
