DOING: benjamin moore colour trends event

18 Jan
last night i attended the 2012 colour trend event from benjamin moore, held at decor-rest. after the colour seminar, we got to take a look at the fab furniture they had to offer, including steven & chris and cobi style (i’ll post more later).   
 from a total of 4 different trend palettes, i thought this “earth & sky” grouping (below) was the most successful. maybe i’m just bias because i love grey. but i do think that it’s the most neutral + versatile. very easy on the eyes – this could be applied to most styles and work.
see the other palettes here and tell me what you think! (be sure to watch vids for interesting wall decor ideas, too.)

ps. cool fact: wythe blue hc-143 featured in this palette is benjamin moore’s colour of the year!
(interesting how it contrasts with pantone’s tangerine tango, huh?!)

INSPIRING: plate palettes

these colours look fab on the dining table – but can you imagine how great they would be in a room? on a cushion, on a rug, or even the trim! hit up your favourite store or vintage shop, and see what kind of room palette you can create!
