This Just In: Benjamin Moore's 2008 Color Trends Report

This Just In: Benjamin Moore's 2008 Color Trends Report

While you're all picking out your perfect paint color, be sure to check out the 21 trendy shades from Benjamin Moore's 2008 Color Trend Report. (Thanks to 2 Modern for the tip.) First, here are the big winners, a.k.a. Benjamin Moore's Hot Color picks. I really love the Peacock Feathers and the Split Pea, though I'm not sure I'm feeling the hot pink trend.

As for the other shades, the paint maker splits this year's trends into three groups that veer toward opposite extremes: gentle and neutral versus rich and deep. Modern Tranquility is made up of whispery, beachy shades; Organic Comforts take cues from nature; and Pure Opulence just looks indulgent. I think my favorites below are French Violet and Sulfer Yellow; in fact, I'd love to see that color combination used in a room. What do you think?

I have 6 very similar colors to these already in my home! I love vibrant colors on the walls. I decorate in layers beginning with the wall color. It's very important to get the wall color right or it may just set off the rest of the room! It can tie all of the other elements together in a very simple way.

I've been wanting to repaint my kitchen a blue shade ... the Aegean Teal would be perfect.

I just painted my room 2 weeks ago and the color turned out nothing like the paint chip (it was 2 shades lighter, despite 2 coats), so I'm looking to repaint it. This colors are great! I like the French Violet...

CasaSugar, my bedroom at my old house was painted in colors very, very close to Sulfer yellow and French Violet and it looked fantastic.

Ooh, I likes! My fave? Modern Tranquility! And, I agree with you Casa, I don't like the hot pink either. My room is painted with Behr's Grass Cloth. It's similar to Split Pea! :D Yay!
