Benjamin Moore hires professionals whose sole task is to keep abreast on the latest colour pallet trends of the year and the season, much like those employed by Pantone. While Pantone looks at the colour trends on all fronts, from fashion to furniture, Benjamin Moore obviously hones in on the colour trends and how they translate to interior paint colour. They also consider the long-lasting impact of these colours — after all, they don’t expect most customers to repaint every year, as much as they’re a fan of keeping paint colour new and fresh. So, with those factors in mind, Benjamin Moore came up with four paint combo pallets for your home. Mix and match these pallets in a variety of ways for a nearly endless number of options.

  1.  Artisan: Rich earth tone pallet composed of a buttery tan, a sienna-tinged brown, a rich pewter grey, a soft grey for contrast, and a putty white. These artisan shades are anything but old-fashioned.
  2. Urbanite: Urban colours that don’t look out of place in a family home. Navy, soft gold, grey-brown, grey-green, and grey-white compose this pallet.
  3. New Romantic: This pallet’s dusty mauve and soft navy are the stars, while the soft grey and yellow neutrals keep the colours from feeling too much like a nursery school. As the pallet’s name suggests, this is a new take on the romantic.
  4. Coastal: Our personal favourite of the pallets, this one screams Cape Cod without feeling too cartoony! We especially can’t get over the blue-greens paired with a more traditional blue and white.
