Benjamin Moore Color Trends 2015

Color trends for 2015 have been revealed! We get so excited to see a fresh spin on the color palettes we have all been wearing and living in for the past years.

c2Design attended Benjamin Moores’ annual color forecasting event to get an inside look on the color palettes, trends, and inspirations.

Lets start off with the color of the year. We have a tendency to think the the color of the year will be this bright, shocking, pop color. Not so! We learned that the color of the year is more like the face of the color story. It can easily transform into an accent, ceiling, or wall color. The purpose is to blend with all the colors.

So whats the color? Guilford Green. Introduced to Benjamin Moore back in 1976, this historic color breathes life into a traditionally classic color.

The other major theme of the event was the trend of monochromatic colors.
‘A monochromatic color scheme uses tints and shades of the same color. It creates a look that is sophisticated and elegant’ ….Benjamin Moore

By using the same color in different variations all around the house adds interest and is easy to do. You can’t  mess up with colors when they are all in the same family. Have fun with this by painting your bedroom wall a deep purple, drapery in a lighter shade of purple, then dress your bedding in different shades of the same purple. Fool proof equation to decorating.

Lastly, the inspirations behind the colors are just as interesting as the colors. How do they create the forecasts for the year? A devoted team takes notice to the world around them. With travels to Paris, Japan, and London, they snap pictures of everyday life that sticks out to them. They also tear of thousands of magazine pictures that captivate their eye. Once they have visual inspirations, they bring it all together to see what jumps out at them. 

Monochromatic and a sense of tradition was big this year.
There you have it! Have fun with the new 2015 color trends and don’t be afraid to switch up your walls! Visit Benjamin Moore for the full color palette and products.
