In my early years of being a designer I attended the HOW Design Conference and went to a session with Leatrice Eiseman on how Pantone picks the colour of the year. (It was also the conference where I met Milton Glaser and geeked out…but that’s another story) It was a fascinating session that shed light into how picking a colour of the year isn’t just just randomly decided upon (like opening a colour deck and seeing what maybe hasn’t been picked in the past) but that instead – a great deal of attention is paid to trends in fashion, decor, design and so on. Since then whenever I hear of colours being picked by companies for what colours are trending, I always think back to that session. So it was with fascination that I waited to see what Benjamin Moore would pick as this year’s colour of the year. Truthfully, the artsy side of me thought it would be something like this yellow (I love this yellow) or Delightful Yellow by Benjamin Moore. BUT to my surprise – they unveiled that it was Simply White (OC-117) WHITE! HUZZAH!!!! I’m in HEAVEN! I actually was pretty ridiculously excited as my house is ALL. WHITE. (Benjamin Moore Cloud White, but hey – close)
You know I’m a fan of Benjamin Moore. Their paints have always been consistently amazing, and I’ve never wavered from using them throughout my home. It should also come as no surprise that as I’m planning the design of the interior of our garage build – the interior is going to be surprise, surprise, white. I LOVE white. It allows pops of colours elsewhere. It allows light to bounce around a room. It’s refreshing, clean and full of possibilities.
In fact – see some of my boards on Pinterest. Every room is WHITE. I’m overjoyed that I feel like my design decisions have been validated. 😉
