New Zealand company Resene’s forecasts for 2012

Continuing my January theme of searching for trends in this blog I look at the New Zealand paint company Resene. Resene forecasts for interior design a cheerful optimistic colour range of yellows, oranges and reds for 2012. But they suggest tranquil blues and greens with a vibrant mix of purples; mustards and earthy tones will also be fashionable this season.

In 2012 bold patterned, textured, metallic and paintable wallpapers will be right on trend according to Resene. Feature walls will continue to be popular; making a statement in a room still in vogue. Textures with flock papers in large floral and damask designs will also prove popular.

Resene is a New Zealand paint company and is well known for leading the development of environmentally sustainable surface coatings in that country. They produced their first waterborne paints in 1951 and the removal of lead from decorative paints in the late 1960s. Their first ‘green’ paint range was launched in 1996.

When Australian College QED launched their Interior Design and Decorating course in 2006 Resene very kindly provided the college with a professional colour box for each students. So I have been aware of this great company since then. I have created a few concept boards for this blog featuring Resene paints, wallpapers and curtains.
