Last year was a very big year for myself and my business. The one game-changer (as I like to call it) was when I went to Vancouver, British Columbia and completed my True Colour Expert® training with Maria Killam. In my line of work, undertones play a huge part in helping clients make the best decisions for their homes. As colour is so important, I’m always interested in what Pantone, Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams will choose (I specify Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore paints) for the colour of the year.
Colour of the Year: Benjamin Moore
Do you remember when Benjamin Moore chose Simply White their Colour of the Year? Some people were so angry as they thought the colour of the year was boring.
Colour of the Year: Sherwin Williams
Sherwin Williams chose Alabaster. Another white you say? Again…so much anger that a paint company would choose a white!
Colour of the Year: Pantone
Well no white for Pantone! Pantone went outside the box this year as they didn’t choose 1 colour – they chose 2!
Colour of the Year: Beauti-Tone
- Hot-Cha-Cha Collate
This reminds me of the brown, Tuscan trend! No thank you.
- Avocado Dip
This has a green undertone and would work well with creams.
Definitely a pink undertone to this colour.
- French Charming
A blue-green colour
