Benjamin Moore Unveils 2015 Colour of the Year
Watch out, white walls.
Champions of colour, rejoice: Benjamin Moore’s 2015 paint picks have arrived and there’s “a new kind of neutral” on the horizon—from a blue tinged Patriotic White, to the lemony cream shades of Seahorse. But for 2015, it’s Guildford Green, a warm celery hue, that wins the coveted Colour of the Year title.
“It has a lot of versatility as it works with other colours,” Sharon Grech, Benjamin Moore Colour Expert, explains. Paired with darker shades, “it plays like a white, but it’s a little more friendly.” On the clean lines of a modern home, Guildford Green is slightly more statement-making, but still natural enough to work well as a backdrop.
