2016 Paint Colors Of The Year

2016 Paint Colors Of The Year

2016 Hudson Valley Paint Color of the YearBenjamin Moore has released the color palette of the year featuring the color of the year, and it’s a throwback to a simpler time.  Drum roll, please…  And the color of the year is Simply White.  Yes, a true classic with the rest of the color palette being excellent accent colors for the lovely simplicity of white.  It is amazing what a beautiful stark white can do to make other colors and accent pieces pop.

This year the decorating trend is to incorporate layers of white and colors that play well with each other.  The creaminess of white contrasted with the intensity of black.  The beauty of fresh white paint contrasted with the natural look of hardwoods.  The luscious white color that is used to bring a visitor’s eye to the room’s focal point or the beauty of the fabulous colors on accent walls.

Think of pairing this color of the year with some of these incredible colors included on the 2016 palette when it comes time for your next painting project:

  • Paper White – a lovely off-white grayish color
