What color trends does Benjamin Moore see for 2009?
The predominant colors for 2009 satisfy a craving for simplicity in our lives. With a tumultuous world that we’re faced with right now, we are looking for refuge in all tangible aspects, and our homes are the first place we turn. Not only do we seek simplicity, but we also look for unique ways to work in touches that reflect a person’s individuality. The design element of surprise is the “treat” we all need and allows us to capture the feeling of belonging in our own space.
Through design and color, we see an optimistic perspective in 2009 with a group of 18 colors. Three colors that are the champions of our trends are Blue Nose (1678), a chic blue with a small measure of gray, that’s ideal for making a personal statement, Sea Haze (2137-50), an organic, nature-inspired gray with a tinge of brown, and Vellum (207), a subdued yellow bordering on the color of wheat which pairs beautifully with many hues. You can find all 18 color picks in our free booklet that is available through our Benjamin Moore Retailers.
