What a difference a year makes! Every year the leading paint companies release their color trend predictions for the upcoming year. Last year we saw a white from both Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams, a blush pink and purple from Pantone and an aloe green from PPG. While none were exactly the same they all had a light fresh quality about them. This year, all bets are off!
PANTONE’S COLOR OF THE YEAR
REFRESHING. REVITALIZING. NEW BEGINNINGS
Greenery is described as “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.”
SHERWIN-WILLIAMS COLOR OF THE YEAR
MODERN. CLASSIC. NEUTRAL
Poised Taupe is an earthen brown combined with conservative grey and the result is a weathered, woodsy and complex neutral that celebrates the imperfections and authenticity of a well-lived life.
BENJAMIN MOORE COLOR OF THE YEAR
MYSTERIOUS. PASSIONATE. ALLUSIVE.
Benjamin Moore Creative Director, Ellen O’Neill, described Shadow as sophisticated, provocative and poetic, it can bring energy to a space or harmony and a moment of respite.
PPG COLOR OF THE YEAR
DEPTH. LUXURY. PAMPERING.
Violet Verbena is a moody purple with a chameleon-like presence that adapts to surrounding environments and complements a variety of design aesthetics, from playful rooms to tranquil spaces.
