Color trends for spring and summer 2013: Tender Shoots

Spring, please come! When I look at this warm, vibrant green, I cannot wait to see this color outside. Tender Shoots belongs to the color palette chosen by Pantone for spring/summer 2013. Isn’t it a gorgeous hue? I really like how it combines with magenta (look at the green top and pink shorts by Diane von Fürstenberg), turquoise and light blue. If you have chairs upholstered in a fabric that features both Tender Shoots and turquoise, like in the dining room above, you know what is going to be a focal point of the room. You basically do not need any other strong decorative accent, which might likely draw attention from this gorgeous scheme. What is your opinion about Tender Shoots? Can you pictures having a room painted in this color (or maybe you already have one)?

If you want to know more about other colors in the Pantone palette for spring/summer 2013, so far I have posted 5 articles about it: Emerald, Lemon Zest, Monaco Blue, Poppy Red, African Violet. More posts are on the way, so stay tuned!

  1. Interesting how fashion and interiors merge. I must admit I’m not a great fan of green but a few subtle accents of green to remind me of Spring/Summer would be great. Unfortunately still gloomy and cold here in London. xx

    • Geraldine, here it is still winter-like, too. Every time I go for a walk I am looking for the first signs of spring! This green is a very fresh color, I would not mind using some accents in my kitchen. Combined with blue, maybe?

  2. I was buying some printed papers today and the vendor said this color would be „anis”. Interesting how differently the wording can be… Lovely series you are writing, Magda!

    • I have a fan deck from a paint company, where „anis” is a beige-gray shade :) . The naming is really interesting and the differences huge! What kind of paper did you buy?
