Blue—the colour of the sea and the sky, of trust and commitment. In North America, this gender-neutral hue has universal appeal, and is often chosen as the most favourite colour.
Like green, blue is another of Mother Nature's neutrals, so it coordinates beautifully with many other colours and a wide range of styles. It's magnificent as a main colour, a backdrop, or subtle accent. How could anyone help but love it?
We often think of blue as calm, cool and collected. But in the right company, blue can be vibrant— even vivacious. Just like your favourite blue jeans, blue is versatile and can convey many personalities.
Elegant wythe blue (HC-143) is Benjamin Moore's 2012 Colour of the Year. This classic blue-green from our Historical Collection offers comfort, stability and a sense of nostalgia. Today we are seeing this beautiful blue paired with creams and greys for a modern retro look, or combined with earthy greens light and dark for a naturally rooted, yet refined, look.
