“Don’t panic hearing WHITE is on trend, there are so many variations that white is truly a color.” GraceAnn Simoni.
See why four paint brands have chosen a shade of white as their hot hue for the new year
Benjamin Moore and Glidden have made off-white hues their “color of the year” for 2016, while Sherwin-Williams and Behr are each showing an off-white in their 2016 color trend forecasts.
I tend to be drawn to colorful interiors but can still appreciate an all-white space that’s done well, such as this kitchen. The cabinets, painted in Benjamin Moore’s Simply White, are simply beautiful. Benjamin Moore has been slowly but surely moving toward softer and lighter hues with its “color of the year” selections.
In 2014, Benjamin Moore’s pick was the subtle sky blue Breath of Fresh Air, and last year, it chose the light and neutral Guilford Green. Simply White is perhaps the next logical choice in Benjamin Moore’s evolution toward barely there, wispy hues. Unlike color management company Pantone’s recent selections, these shades are soft and neutral enough to be used generously in a space, rather than as a small accent only.
