Spring 2011 Color Trends from the Pantone Institute

Citing exotic destinations like Africa, India, and Turkey as inspiration for spring 2011, designers continue to satisfy consumers’ need to escape everyday challenges with intriguing color combinations that transport them to foreign lands. “The colors designers have chosen for the spring season present an interesting marriage of unexpected warm and cool tones,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “By cleverly combining complementary colors, those that are opposites on the color wheel, they have created a striking intensity to the palette.”
