Pantone’s 2012 spring colors include vivid brights, soft subdued hues and playful pastels. The coming of spring promises “renewed energy, optimism and the promise of a brighter day” (Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute of Color). Color can change our mood and provide motivation to experiment with new color combinations.
The bright tantalizing orange of Tangerine Tango, provides a refreshing outlook for spring. Solar Power exudes warmth and delivers a burst of energy. A distinctive shade of purple, Bellflower, conveys individuality and imagination. A sensual and intense rosy-red, Cabaret, is stimulating and bright. The deep hue of Sodalite Blue conveys tranquility. Blue-green Cockatoo, reminiscent of western turquoise, is a whimsical addition to the 2012 spring palette. Margarita is a zesty yellow-green and as refreshing as its namesake. Sweet Lilac suggests the delicate scents encountered on a spring walk and will add a touch of romance to your wardrobe. Driftwood and Starfish, versatile neutrals, compliment all the colors in the spring 2012 palette.
