House Beautiful’s 2012 Color Trends


I felt compelled to make another post about color since my last post seemed to catch people’s eyes.

House Beautiful releases an annual Color Issue that takes an in-depth look at the year’s color trends. This information presented is based on an in-depth survey of 4000+ House Beautiful readers, design bloggers, and other professional designers. Fortunately for us, the results are displayed in a very friendly way with lots of color! 

The top image shows how color trends vary regionally in the United States. Keep reading below to see the favorite paint colors for 2012 and how color preferences change from room to room in a house. I find this piece so interesting because color is a very subjective topic and everyone has their own opinion. My favorite color right now is blue – based on the map above, maybe it’s a sign that I should move to California!

To gain more insights (like why people think pink is “over”), pick up the September issues of House Beautiful. It’s on stands now!
