There are some great resources on the web that show us what the latest colour trends are. One of our favorites is from Akzo Nobel. The company has produced a magazine like experience online that not only shows you what the current colour trends are but explains the thinking behind the colour selections.

Go to http://www.colourfutures.com/ Click on the “Download Colour Futures Book” button and flip through the pages to view the creative photography that illustrates the use of many of the latest colours. When you flip through the online book you will see that neutral colours tend toward gray or have a grayed influence. You will also see lots of full bodied hues, hushed pastels. chic neutrals and edgy brights.

Grays are also prevalent in Benjamin Moore’s colour trends for 2012. Visit http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-ca/for-your-home/colour-trends-2012 to view the four colour themes the company has selected for the year. While exploring each theme you can see how one room takes on a dramatically different look with the selection of alternate colours.
