A breath of fresh air

A break from last year's indigo hues, Benjamin Moore's 2014 Colour of the Year, Breath of Fresh Air (806) is just that. A fresh blue akin to the sky on a warm summer's day, this ethereal shade is bold yet simple enough to stand alone or it can serve as a new neutral for the year ahead, made to pair with the 2014 Trend Card ““ a palette of 23 carefully curated colours that work in harmony with Breath of Fresh Air. “We chose Breath of Fresh Air because we were seeing it across several different environments,” says Ellen O'Neill, Benjamin Moore Creative Director. “Our Colour of the Year and Colour Trends 2013 palette is a direct result of the fresh colour cue and pastel trends we've seen throughout the home furnishing, fashion and even pop culture landscapes.”
