Remember last year's color?? Persimmon? was okay for for an accent here and there but other than that I really didn't like it.

This year....I am liking Benjamin Moore's pick: Wythe Blue.

Soothing, classy, elegant yet hip and modern. Here is what they say about it:

2012 Color of the Year!

"Much more versatile than you may think, blue is truly a classic color. It has universal appeal, never goes out of style, and is overwhelmingly chosen as a color favorite across North America. It evokes the sea and sky, physically calms us, and symbolizes trust and commitment.

Because of the influence that blue has in our world today, we have chosen wythe blue (HC-143) as Benjamin Moore's 2012 Color of the Year. It's a beautiful, calming hue that has an element of heritage and offers grounding rootedness, providing comfort and stability."


Here are Benjamin Moore's other Color Trends for 2012.


Spiced Life

A palette of well-seasoned hues that offer a refined perspective.

Sense & Sensability

Timeless colors that make an established home feel contemporary and a new one a little more worldly.

Earth & Sky

Nature's hues unite for a style-savvy palette that transcends organic roots.

Eclectic Elegance

This diverse palette offers a clean, tailored look that works well with any decor.


Now that you have some inspiration go ahead......change a room or two!

I do not know to much but the softer color is something I like.

I love the earth and sky colors.  I know one person who keeps using yellow.  Wish they would consider other color options.
