I was purchasing paint samples the other day (shocking), when my paint guy handed over one of the new Benjamin Moore brochures – Color Trends 2015. I snapped it right up, and upon opening it, saw their 2015 Color of the Year. Are you ready?
Let’s take a look at it in a room:
Here is the shot that was on the cover of the brochure:
It strikes me as a more vivid celery green in the brochure, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. It’s not a color I could see using throughout my home, but it would be lovely paired with a lavender shade of purple in a bedroom or bath.
I always enjoy seeing the paint colors that the different paint companies offer up each year. Some aren’t necessarily to my taste, but I can most always find colors that I could envision incorporating in my own home.
There are four primary palettes that Benjamin Moore shared for their 2015 color trends.
- Tried, True & Utterly New
- Ground Yourself in Green
- Quiet on the Set
- California Cool
Or perhaps a room with this kind of vibe. Quite lovely, don’t you think?
Ground Yourself in Green
There are a lot of colors in this palette that I find myself drawn toward. Specifically, High Park, Jack Pine and Antique Jade and Seahorse.
How gorgeous is this island in Benjamin Moore’s Jack Pine? I love it paired with the warm wood tones in the floors and the beam in this kitchen. Am I crazy in thinking this island would have been even more stunning with a rich wood stained butcher block counter?
High Park is an equally rich, yet lovely color.
Quiet on the Set
The “Blush Family” color palette is very soft and feminine with lovely wispy colors that complement one another in a very sophisticated way.
Silver Fox is sophisticated all by itself. It makes me think of a Paris apartment.
While this room isn’t Pink Damask (it’s Benjamin Moore’s I Love You Pink), you can see how a soft pink works with a pretty sand color used in the bedding and furnishings.
California Cool (Blue Family)
You’ll notice that Guilford Green is carried through each palette, and proves that it is more versatile than one would think at first glance.
You know how much I love a deep, moody blue, so it’s no surprise that Blue Danube is one of my favorites out of this color palette.
Harbor Fog is another lovely blue hue in this palette.
What do you think of Benjamin Moore’s 2015 color trends? Do you have any favorites? What do you think of Guilford Green as the color of the year?
