The Color Of The Year Is Here


You can all finally exhale. Warren Buffet’s paint division, Benjamin Moore, has breathlessly announced their “color of the year” for 2014. It’s a pale blue called “breath of fresh air.” The company calls the color “ethereal” and the “new neutral.” I think it’s kinda dull. Pantone has announced a competing color, it’s also blue, but it’s only for Spring of 2014. By summer we’ll all probably be on “mint” or “lemonade” or something soft and pretty. I’ll miss the dynamic screaming greens and oranges of recent years and try to tone it down a little… or not.
