2012 Fashion Color Trends

My assistant, Brooke, and I attended “Color Direction” presented by Leatrice Eiseman, Color Consultant, Forecaster and Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute and Eiseman Center of Color Information and Training a couple of days ago at Pacific Market Center during the Seattle Market week, where we learned the road map to color for 2012.

As a home decor’s store owner and interior designer, knowing where we are in the color’s world and where it will be help me making  better choices in product assortments and also in guiding my interior design clients into the right direction.

Here is the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2012 reposted from snapretail website.
