“Colour awakens the senses and elevates your point of view. We’ve searched the world, exploring the latest trends, to bring you a collection of inspired palettes that offer a fresh perspective on your personal style. These four select color groups will bring life to any home and transform the ordinary into the sublime.” ~Benjamin Moore
It’s very interesting to see what the various paint companies are submitting as trends for 2012; after the runway trends for spring/summer were released I definitely thought we’d be seeing many more feminine & ‘pretty’ colours. However the blend of colours are some of natural, pretty, modern & inviting.
The first palette that Benjamin Moore presented was Earth & Sky… a palette where nature’s elements unite in a style-savvy manor. This is a palette that offers a calm & relaxing escape from the busy world. Ideal for the master bath or a bedroom retreat. However if you gravitate to these colour then try it in your office or dinning room as well.
The second palette, Eclectic Elegance is one of casual glam. This diverse palette offers the ability of a very tailored look while offering you the choice of both cool and warmth all in one palette. What effect does this have? One that’s both enticing & fresh.
Looking for some spice in your life? This third palette is one that has more of an urban feel… name the Spiced Life it all about offering a refined perspective. With elements of depth, soft tones and a kick of spice this palette with awaken any room.
Timeless trends and classic colours are what this fourth & final palette puts forth. Sense & Sensibility brings us back to classic colours while offering a modern spin to the feel they present. These colours will provide any home with a contemporary & established feeling while bringing a worldly feel to your space.
Hopefully some of these beautiful, modern and inspiring colours will give you the desire to try something new this year. It’s a new year and time to step outside the box!
