Color Trends & 2016 Color of the Year ~ Simply White

2016 Color of the Year Simply White

"Fresh as the first snowfall, this clean, crisp, multi-purpose white is a perennial favorite for trim, ceilings, and walls." - Benjamin Moore website.

Each fall, color experts around the globe put their heads together and determine the color forecast for the upcoming year. Paint companies, fashion industry, and I'm sure the beauty industry are all watching to see the trends that are evolving. Or maybe they're setting the trends? I'm not sure, but I do know that I really like the 2016 color of the year from Benjamin Moore, Simply White.

This country kitchen with Simply White cabinets would be a dream to cook in. The pops of copper in the cabinets and the black chairs add a nice little punch of color.

Here's nice living room from The Nester where the Simply White serves as a wonderful backdrop to her striped curtains and fun accents. 

Another fresh, white kitchen with Simply White on the cabinets and walls. The wood topped island and the cutting boards add a nice warm touch to the room.

This Simply White living room has a clean, fresh feeling to it and the walls allow the furniture and decorative accents to be the stars of the show.

Here are some of the forecasted color trends for 2016.

A nice mix of colors make up the Color Palette for 2016. The bolder colors would be perfect for accent walls, furniture, or any space where a dramatic look is desired.

I'm partial to the lighter shades for most spaces in our home, what about you?

  1. Hi Angie! Does Simply White have a tiny bit of warmth to it? It looks like it does in the samples, but I have never seen it in person, have you? LOVE these colors, gray owl is a fave.


I love hearing from you, and your comments make my day!
