How does Benjamin Moore choose our Colour of the Year and the corresponding Colour Trends Palette?Our annual celebration of colour is the result of a yearlong exploration into design, art, fashion, cultural and environmental influences around the globe. From Benjamin Moore’s library of over 3,500 colours, we carefully curate a Colour Trends palette that balances modern-day relevance with long-lasting appeal. At the centre is one special hue that defines the palette—and the moment: the Colour of the Year.

The Journey to the Colour of the Year and the Colour Trends Palette

Their work yields common threads across diverse disciplines, resulting in a thoughtfully curated colour palette—and one standout paint colour—that inspires us all.
The richness and nuance of the Colour of the Year and Colour Trends palette can only be achieved with Benjamin Moore products. Our paint is available exclusively from 7,500 locally owned paint, decorating and hardware retailers.
