Benjamin Moore Announces its 'Color of the Year'

Benjamin Moore just announced its Color of the Year and all I can say is that white is definitely 'it' in design for 2015, and will probably be very hot in 2016 as well.

We can't wait to see what Pantone officially announces as the 2016 Color of The Year. Currently in their Color Trends report, they are valuing colors that 'transcend cultural and gender norms.'

As for now we are still under the influence of Marsala, the official 2015 COTY. What a beautiful and luscious tone for Autumn. It evokes changing leaves, cinnamon, wine, and earthy warmth.
