Much more versatile than you may think, blue is truly a classic color. It has universal appeal, never goes out of style, and is overwhelmingly chosen as a color favorite across North America. It evokes the sea and sky, physically calms us, and symbolizes trust and commitment.Because of the influence that blue has in our world today, we have chosen Wythe Blue (HC-143) as Benjamin Moore's 2012 Color of the Year. It's a beautiful, calming hue that has an element of heritage and offers grounding rootedness, providing comfort and stability.
Lets hear it for Wythe Blue! I've long loved the color (see my other post here) and I know that a lot of you have used it (and love it!) in your own homes, so I was excited to read the news from the paint experts over at Hirshfield's Color Club. They shared the 2012 trend colors in a bunch of great room sets...it's crazy how much paint can change the look of a room! Needless to say, I couldn't agree more with Benjamin Moore's choice for Color of the Year. I am also loving their inspiring Earth & Sky color palette that incorporates the color so beautifully! Who is ready to do some painting?!
