I love the colour palette Benjamin Moore has chosen for 2012! Filled with many natural colours and muted tones. There’s something very classic farmhouse about the collection, but with a bit of a fresh twist.

Earth & Sky

Eco Trend – Flora, fauna, water and sky, moss, and rock. Nature’s elements unite in a style-savvy look that transcends it’s organic roots. Refreshing white and blue balance the palette, offering a calm, relaxing respite from the busy world.

Eclectic Elegance

Casual Glam Trend – Mix it up! This diverse palette offers a clean, tailored look that works well with any decor. A blend of carefree with chic, cool with warm, the effect is fresh and very enticing.

Spiced Life

Urban Trend – Well-seasoned hues offer a refined perspective. Rich espresso blends naturally with smooth stone and soft graphite tones. A cool amethyst lends added depth, while a hint of spice provides the perfect “kick” that wakes up the room.

Sense & Sensibility

Heritage Trend – Timeless hues – epic, yet completely modern. Restrained gray, aged blue and red clay pair beautifully with rich cream and antique white. Sensibly appointed, they make an established home feel contemporary… and a new one a little more worldly.
