Colors for Springs

Even though it is cool outside, February is coming to a close.  It's a leap year, so we have one more day!  But it looks like March will start off with a warm, sunny day!  Spring is just around the corner for us in the South.  And spring brings softer, lighter colors.  According to Pantone, the color trend setters, pinks and purples are the colors for this coming season.  A dash of yellow, splash of blue, and a touch of gray round out the selections.  According to Pantone Color Institute's executive director, Leatrice Eiseman, the spring colors "reflect the cheerfulness of the season" and I would say that I have to agree. Here is the report, which was actually published last spring.  If you are interested in color trends for fall 2008, check them out here
