As you might expect....and has traditionally been the case...The Pantone company and major paint manufacturers have all chosen verydifferent colors as "The Color of the Year" from the people at Benjamin Moore is a very very pale/pastel touch of pink they are calling "First Light"....Light is the operative word here...very light. They are suggesting it as a substitute for white or beige ....and can be a companion color to either one.
One of the things that Benjamin Moore does....just like trying on a pair of shoes first ...is to sell a sheet of color. Try it on the wall...it is easily removable ...and if you don't like it...you haven't got a lot invested in materials, time or labor costs. Each swatch is painted and true to the color you ordered. Or use it as an accent to a wall....combining coordinating or contrasting sheets. They are available in three sizes:
- 2 X 9.25
- 4 X 9.25
- 8 X 9.25 This is quite a contrast when we compare it to the Color of the Year chosen by Pantone....see our post here called Classic Blue with a nod to a more jeweled tone. to stay in the blue hue family this year as well with "Naval" as it's color choice we showed in our post you can find here.
- We will be looking at the color chosen by Behr to complete our "Color of the Year" series...not close to either one of these in "color family." There is something for everyone this year with the variety offered in hues. This has been a decorative post brought to you Sally K. & David L.
