|Pantone's color predictions for 2011|
The colors predicted are grays and blacks with jolts of yellows and oranges. Red is expected to make a return but mostly as an accent. It seems to me, the color trend is going to earthy tones with interesting hues. Like 'wine' but muddied. Citrus yellow, dulled. Smoky blues. There seems to be a subdued quality to the colors, all of them. The colors still look bold when given the back drop of gray or black, but they aren't the usual bright, pops of color we saw in 2010, it seems.
I love reading the predictions and with the internet it's fun to look back at what was predicted for 2010. Did they all come to fruition? I love this stuff!
