Color Trends 2012

Color awakens the senses and elevates your point of view.

We’ve searched the world, exploring the latest trends, to bring you a collection of inspired palettes that offer a fresh perspective on your personal style.

These select color groups will bring life to any home and transform the ordinary to the sublime.

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

The first theme consists the following colors: sharkskin 2139-30, fresh olive 2149-30, battenberg AF-70, storm cloud gray 2140-40, wythe blue HC-143. That blue HC-143 has in our world today, we have chosen wythe blue (HC-143) as Benjamin Moore's 2012 Color of the Year (below you will find more information).   

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.

CASUAL GLAM TREND. Mix it up! This diverse palette offers a clean, tailored look that works well with any décor. A blend of carefree with chic, cool with warm, the effect is fresh and very enticing.

The next theme represents the following shades: stardust 2108-40, gypsy love 2085-30, white dove OC-17, nimbus gray 2131-50 and farm fresh AF-360.


Zestawienie 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. 

Theme "Spiced Life" consists the following colors: french press AF-170, revere pewter HC-172, persimmon 2088-40, refined AF-75 and amethyst shadow 1441.


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.

The last theme of "Color Trends 2012", collection "Sense & Sensibility" consists hues: ballet white OC-9, masada AF-220, dunmore cream HC-29, pashmina AF-100 and montpelier AF-555.
