Color Trends

            I recently had the opportunity to attend a color trends presentation by Benjamin Moore. They have an incredible team of researchers who spend countless hours pulling information, attending shows and talking with designers to determine what the color trends for the future will be. Here are their predictions for the upcoming color trends.


Eco Trend: Flora and fauna, water and sky, moss and rock. Nature’s elements unite in a style-savvy look that transcends is organic roots. Refreshing white and blue balance the palette, offering a calm, relaxing respite from the busy world.


Casual Glam Trend: Mix it up! This diverse palette offers a clean, tailored look that works well with any decore. A blend of carefree with chic, cool with warm, the effect is fresh and very enticing.


Urban Trend: Well-seasoned hues offer a refined perspective. Rich espresso blends naturally with smooth stone and soft graphite tones. A cool amethyst lends added depth, while a hint of spice provides the perfect “kick” that wakes up the room.


Heritage Trend: Timeless hues-epic, yet completely modern. Restrained gray, aged blue and red clay pair beautifully with rich cream and antique white. Sensibly appointed, they make an established home feel contemporary…and a new one a little more worldly.


Many thanks to Benjamin Moore for their work and for sharing the information. Whether you are creating a new space or just trying to pull together your existing space, use this cutting edge information and you are sure to hit a home run. You can view more details on their website at
