Benjamin Moore announced its Color of the Year — Simply White OC-117. The company also unveiled Color Trends 2016, a corresponding palette of 23 colors, to illustrate how white works within the color spectrum. White transcends style, and is seen in traditional, transitional and modern interiors. The color also presents attractive exterior looks for the home, from colonial to contemporary and virtually everything in between.
The Benjamin Moore Color Studio forecasts color trends after a year of research attending major industry shows around the world, while also taking cues from standouts in architecture, fashion, textiles, home furnishings and the arts. The Color Studio arrived at Simply White OC-117 after careful review of more than 250 white selections. It was the most neutral, level and constant in the various light sources used in today’s design environments.
