Why Simply White as the colour of the Year 2016? White frames and transforms a place into a Sanctuary. Simply white is classic, elegant, versatile, understated and adaptable. In today’s multi-tasking world, we all crave simplicity. White makes minimal magical.
To quote Sharon, from Benjamin Moore, colour is a personal expression. The key with white is the way light reflects off of other objects in the room. Have a look at the booklet Benjamin Moore 2016 colour trends.
Where do paint colourists get their Inspiration from? Candice Olson talks about inspiration being constant and everywhere.She loves Mother Nature, if it’s beautiful in Nature, then it will be beautiful in your Home. She also draws Inspiration from the past – patterns such as chevrons, geometrics and other architectural patterns.
There is the play of white and shadow, and of white and light. White is important in Interiors, white unifies and simplifies. White has an ability to modernize tradition. White brings a modern attitude to the room.
