While you're all picking out your perfect paint color, be sure to check out the 21 trendy shades from Benjamin Moore's 2008 Color Trend Report. (Thanks to 2 Modern for the tip.) First, here are the big winners, a.k.a. Benjamin Moore's Hot Color picks. I really love the Peacock Feathers and the Split Pea, though I'm not sure I'm feeling the hot pink trend.
As for the other shades, the paint maker splits this year's trends into three groups that veer toward opposite extremes: gentle and neutral versus rich and deep. Modern Tranquility is made up of whispery, beachy shades; Organic Comforts take cues from nature; and Pure Opulence just looks indulgent. I think my favorites below are French Violet and Sulfer Yellow; in fact, I'd love to see that color combination used in a room. What do you think?
