I recently received Pantone's color report for 2010.  Although, I don't decorate according to color trends, I still find the information very interesting.  Going forward, neutrals are apparently taking center stage.  So much so, that Pantone has added a neutral palette this year to the forecast.

"Design and color trends are not conjured up in a crystal ball—they are the result of much

observation of the surrounding natural world, as well as the influences that will impact the world

of the future according to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute and

head of the Eiseman Center for Color Information and Training. They include the social issues,

the economy, technology, lifestyles and play styles, diversions, entertainments and most

importantly, the needs, moods, fantasies and aspirations of consumers that are then translated

into appropriate styling, colors and combinations. The following palettes, which Eiseman calls

“most directional” are taken from the Pantone® View home + interiors 2010 forecast.

Pantone high def
Pantone Neutrals

So what palette appeals to you?  Is there an individual color that beckons you?  I'm loving Smoke Blue from the Gatherings Collection.  Overall, the High Def collection is the most "me".
