What colors are “in” and “out”?

Did you know that every year, color experts in the world of interior design and fashion decide in advance what colors will be “in” or “out”?  They even predict different colors of choice by season.  For example, the fall colors will change in home decor and clothing on a year-to-year basis.  The web site is a place where you can find out what’s hot and what’s not.  For example, they cite an organization called the Pantone Institute as saying the hot color for the 2009-2010 season is “yellow.”  There’s lots more information at their site about colors to avoid such as the “Not So Blah Neutrals” to “Aqua Cool”.  Whatever colors you decide are best for you, make sure your tabletop settings reflect the “color of the occasion” when entertaining.
