MONTVALE, N.J.-Paint maker Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year for 2014 is “Breath of Fresh Air” (color number 806), part of its Color Trends 2014 palette.
Breath of Fresh Air is “a gorgeous, ethereal blue serving as a ‘new neutral’ that is livable and functional,” according to the company. “We chose Breath of Fresh Air because we were seeing it across several different environments—it’s our new neutral,” said Benjamin Moore Creative Director Ellen O’Neill. “Our Color of the Year and Color Trends 2014 palette is a direct result of the fresh color cues and pastel trends we’ve seen throughout the home furnishing, fashion and even pop culture landscape.”
Benjamin Moore’s Color Trend palette includes 23 colors that stand on their own but also work well in harmony, “allowing the transitions of spaces and colors to flow seamlessly.”
