Remember last year's color?? Persimmon? Ugh....it was okay for for an accent here and there but other than that I really didn't like it.

This year....I am liking Benjamin Moore's pick: Wythe Blue.

Soothing, classy, elegant yet hip and modern. Here is what they say about it:

2012 Color of the Year!

"Much more versatile than you may think, blue is truly a classic color. It has universal appeal, never goes out of style, and is overwhelmingly chosen as a color favorite across North America. It evokes the sea and sky, physically calms us, and symbolizes trust and commitment.

Because of the influence that blue has in our world today, we have chosen wythe blue (HC-143) as Benjamin Moore's 2012 Color of the Year. It's a beautiful, calming hue that has an element of heritage and offers grounding rootedness, providing comfort and stability."

 

Here are Benjamin Moore's other Color Trends for 2012.

 

Spiced Life

A palette of well-seasoned hues that offer a refined perspective.



Sense & Sensability

Timeless colors that make an established home feel contemporary and a new one a little more worldly.



Earth & Sky


Nature's hues unite for a style-savvy palette that transcends organic roots.



Eclectic Elegance

This diverse palette offers a clean, tailored look that works well with any decor.



 

Now that you have some inspiration go ahead......change a room or two!

We used Benjamin Moore when we had our house painted and loved the colors. The ones above - totally my taste!

Shar if a color is not in an 8 pack of crayons I do not know what to call it.  Guess why that is why I am not a stager.

Shar, I love BM new color choice. It looks very elegant and sophisticated. I am thinking to paint my house since we've lived here for 5 years now. I am leaning toward to the gray tones.

Benjamine Moore has some of the best colors LaNita so I can see why you used them.

Not even a 16 pack Gene? LOL

I really like the gray tones Anna which I didn't use to like in the past.

I agree with you....softer is sometimes better.
