Color Week : Pantone predictions

Have you already crushed for an item that you think is very unusual, full of personality and unique? Like, let say... yellow polka dot pants...

You had never seen anyone with this kind of pants but... the month you bought it, polka dot pants are popping up everywhere.

Or your think that Eugène is an awesome and unique name for your newborn... Then four months later, there are five little Eugène at the gardery...

This is trends.

Would you follow them or not, it's stronger than you.

Well, for colors, it's the same thing. And the expert in that field is Pantone.

You probably know it by name and have seen some Pantone items before...

But, Pantone is not an hype items producer, it's a bunch of color experts that define what are the colors that we will (/would?) love (and we will). It's the worldwide color guru.

They define each year the Color of the Year.

Last year was Tangerine Tango, a beautiful and intense orange :

Pantone sells its palette to fashion/car/IT industries and Tangerine Tango is on the cat walks, in your live and in your home!

Speaking about myself, while I wasn't paying attention to this, I noticed that last year hippest items I purchased were... Tangerine tango!

Anouk's Bloom chair :

What happened to Anouk?!

And our Urban Outfitters turn table... oh yes I'm hype :

ps : They don't have it anymore... soooo 2012!

This palette is for this fall.

I Like the lower row better. Chartreuse is a very popular green in interior design right now.

Well, in a few weeks, Pantone is going to elect the color of the year 2013! The color you'll like next year!

 I am predicting the color of the year to be blue or green...

Like this beautiful wisteria blue (that we hadn't see since the early nineties).

Or what about this amazing indigo?

Or this incredible emerald green?

Or mint green?

Do you agree with my prediction about color trends?
