2013 Spring Color Forecast

 I just got a chance to browse the 2013 Pantone color forecast for Spring. I was a little surprised by the colors... But I think they are all very beautiful. I guess I was surprised because they seem a little "muted" versus the past years. The colors that excite and inspire me the most are: "Monaco Blue", "Sunflower", "Vibrant Orange", and "Emerald".

 I leave for my annual materials buying trip in exactly 3 weeks and I will be using these colors as inspiration. I am so excited to see what new stones and other materials I can get my hands on. 5 days of shopping in the Arizona sun... I hope... one year the weather was awful- record lows and freezing pipes! But, most years the weather is amazing and sunny.

Are you a little surprised by this color palette for Spring 2013? Tell me why.


  1. I agree- they are definitely a departure from what we'ev seen the past few years. But I like them. Colorful but sophisticated. A little more "grown-up" than the neons of late.
    p.s. Arizona sounds spectacular!!!
