I love this time of year! Not only because of the cheerful holiday music but because the trends and predictions for 2015 start steam rolling out.  It’s time to shift those dream ideas into plans for the new year!

Anyone else joining me in appreciating that green is back!  I think the recovery period of ‘forest green’ is finally over! Benjamin Moore predicts GUILFORD GREEN #HC-1116 (from their historic collection) as the color of the year that ties all things together!

Guilford Green has a Light Reflectance Value (LRV) of 58.65 and a Cool undertone that pairs well with other colors like Hemp Seed, White Down, Timid White, Quincy TanCloud White  And if you are looking for new accent colors to use with Guilford Green, check out Pigeon Gray, Cherokee Brick , Sea Life, Colonial Brick, Whitall Brown

Benjamin Moore also has an entire Colour Collection for 2015, revolving around four families that take us into a world of Green, Blue, Blush, and Berry. So stay tuned for more introductions and inspirations to get your wheels turning to a new world of color!

“A neutral that’s natural. A silvery green that works with, well, everything. No worries. No second thoughts. Just a brush, dipped in a can, whooshed on a wall, and a whole lot of happily ever after.” 

–Ellen O’Neill, Creative Director, Benjamin Moore
