What's New in 2010
MyHomeIdeas: Last year we saw lots of cool blue-grays, soft yellows and muted greens. What is different about color in 2010? What motivates these new trends?
Sonu Mathew: This year ushered in a new decade and a new beginning. At Benjamin Moore, we’ve interpreted this period of renewal by identifying 18 colors from our palette of more than 3,300 as the 2010 trend colors.
When it comes to trends, Green is definitely the “it” color. Specifically, we’ve cited Benjamin Moore Cedar Green. It's a compelling hue, with a yellow tone contributing a vibrant pop when used alone, but creating a softer look when paired with neutrals.
