Benjamin Moore Pleasant Pink Paint Color #2094-60 // Color Trends 2018


Yesterday afternoon Benjamin Moore announced their Color Trends 2018, a curated palette of 23 highly influential hues that will be trending on everyone’s paint color wish-list in the year ahead.  To select these shades, the Benjamin Moore Color and Design team underwent a year-long research journey to 30 cities across 12 countries, attending more than 20 industry shows and taking cues from the arts, design, architecture, pop culture, fashion, home design and more.  The #ColorTrends2018 palette includes a beautiful spectrum of reds, from hints of blush to deep oxbloods, which pair perfectly with their carefully selected array of whites, neutrals, and complementary bold hues.  Of the 23 colors, Benjamin Moore has named Caliente AF-290 its Color of the Year 2018, a vibrant, charismatic shade of red.  A full post on Caliente AF-290 is coming, but first see the full roster of 23 VIP hues.

As we all know from squinting at itty-bitty paint chips, the best way (and only way, in my opinion) to evaluate a paint color is to see it in several large swatches around the room it will go in.  In lieu of that, take a look through my slideshow of each of the 23 colors in a room.
