  5. Ba ha ha, your songs crack me up, Sue, I love it! I know for a fact that I am one of those friends, I have been predicting purple as Pantone Color of the Year for awhile now (though I wouldn't be surprised if aubergine sneaked in there…). XX!

    Myth.
    Officially 2011 colors are:
    honeysuckle, coral rose, peapod, beeswax, silver peony, russet, regatta, pale lavender, and silver cloud.

    No official "purple" on the design radar, thankfully…….

    Regardless, who cares what's official – use what you like.

  14. So funny! Honestly, though, do people actually say to themselves 'purple is the color of the year, I am going to paint my living room to stay in tune with the times'? I can see it for fashion, not so much for decor…but, on the other hand, it has been creeping into the design consciousness over the past few years, so people might be a bit more open to incorporating it if they are redoing something.

    I have always loved purple. When you walk through my house, there is a little purple in just about every room, not intentionally, just there.

    I'll see if I can get Leatrice Eiseman on the phone (I was in Color Marketing Group with her – lovely lady) and put a good word in for purple. LOL! I wish I knew her that well. The issue with purple is that people love it or hate it, there is no in between. I always tried to fight for a purple colorway in the fabrics I designed, but 95% of the time the purple was voted out. But it will always be chic and relevant. I love it!!!

  29. Hello: Sorry I've been under water so long. My last post was very slow for me. Bobby McAlpine makes me nervous for some reason. He's so good, it is spooky. Anyway, I am going to predict a very strong almost acid yellow that Laura Kirar used in the Baker showroom last April. I'll let you know after Oct. market!

    I have seen a lot of purple lately, so it might just be the color of 2011. Why not?:)

  91. Oh good, it looks like I'm just about the first to comment on this… Anyways, yes! I've been seeing purple sneak into plenty of designs lately and wouldn't be surprised if it was full blown COTY (color of the year) for 2011. But Anonymus has a different opinion, we are destined for peapod and beeswax apparently.
