Benjamin Moore unveil Colour Trends 2016



Benjamin Moore just announced its highly anticipated 2016 Colour of the Year – Simply White OC-117. The company also unveiled Colour Trends 2016, a corresponding palette of 23 colours to illustrate how white works within the colour spectrum.

“The colour 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 colours, variants of white occupy five spots. It was inevitable that we would ultimately recognize white as our Colour of the Year.”

The Colour Studio arrived at Simply White OC-117 after careful review of the company’s more than 250 white selections. According to the Colour Studio, it was the most neutral, level and constant in the various light sources used in today’s design environments.
