WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Simply White is Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year for 2016, and homeowners can find out how to use it appropriately from design experts at Wallauer’s.
“The color white is transcendent, powerful and polarizing – it is either taken for granted or obsessed over,” said Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore Creative Director. “White is not just a design trend, it is a design essential. The popularity of white, the necessity of white, the mystique of white is quantifiable in our industry. Of the top ten best-selling Benjamin Moore colors, variants of white occupy five spots. It was inevitable that we would ultimately recognize white as our Color of the Year.”
Benjamin Moore’s Color Studio found its Simply White OC-117 to be the most neutral, level and constant in the various light sources used in today’s design environments.
The Benjamin Moore Color Studio forecasts color trends after a year of research attending major industry shows around the world, while also taking cues from standouts in architecture, fashion, textiles, home furnishings and the arts.
White transcends style, and is seen in traditional, transitional and modern interiors. The color also presents attractive exterior looks for the home, from colonial to contemporary and virtually everything in between.
