10 Examples of Pantone’s 2012 Fashion Color Predictions in Rooms

I remember that my teacher of drawing tried us to explain how colors can affect our mood when they are used for some interiors. Thus he told us that a green colored room can make us feel more relaxed or for the contrary an orange room can make us feel more agitated and full of energy. The cold nuances like blue and purple can create a cold ambiance while the warm nuances like yellow or brown can make us feel warmer.

I guess everything depends on our perceptions and the way we view things.It is interesting to see that there are some colors which can dominate some interiors every year and the color company, Pantone makes a list of colors predicted for each next year.We may see some examples of such predictions made for this year by Pantone.
