California Paints is part of the Spring Summer 2011 color trends generated by Global Color Research. Presented by Mix Trends, the color selection consists of twenty forecast colors that create unique color stories. All colors have been selected from California Paints’ Perfect Palette collection. Global Color Research, the London-based color consultancy studio, is a key provider of dependable color trend information, which is available to all design markets. Mix Trends, a bi-annual color publication produced by Global Color Research, used the colors of California Paints to develop color stories titled Whisper, Spirit, Genteel and Risk. All stories reflect optimism and growth for the 2011 year and help embrace the future. California Paints worked closely with Global Color Research and Dunn Edwards, manufacturer of premium paint products in the Southwest region, to create this color trend summary in a concise booklet format. Each color story brings the color selections to life, while helping to inspire and guide designers in their color selection.
