Benjamin Moore’s Colour of the Year 2014

Breathe. Just breathe. Forget the phones, the screens, and the email. Take inspiration from comfort and simplicity. Take a leap and reinvent what you know. Take a moment to exhale.

Yes! Yes! Yes! That’s exactly where I find I am these days. Maybe it’s the rush of the holiday season, or maybe it’s the new reality of the business world, or maybe I just need to take a break, I don’t know but does that statement ever speak to me. I have a similar blue in my office and I find it to be really happy, especially with a white desk. It combines subtle hints of the sky and it’s infinite possibilities with a little flirt of girly blue.

Across the interwebs I’m seeing Breath of Fresh Air paired with Wolf Gray and it’s just gorgeous! It’s not one of the trend colours, but together I think they ought to be.

The Rest of Benjamin Moore’s 2014 Colour Palette

I love all the soft greys I’ve been seeing on walls for the past couple of years but I’m finding in our home we’re shifting to more of a fresh yet still in the neutral range blue-grey, with the exception of the studio, which I try to keep nice and neutral. Benjamin Moore’s palette is seeing tints of blues, greens, lavenders, and pinks so it’s obvious we’re not the only ones leaning this way.

Like we’ve done in the past we’ve paired some of their forecast colours with some of our photographs to give you some inspiration for how all of this can work for you.
