indexBenjamin Moore has named “Breath of Fresh Air” (color number 806) its Color of the Year for 2014. The hue is described as an ethereal blue that is both livable and functional.

“We chose Breath of Fresh Air because we were seeing it across several different environments – it’s our new neutral,” said Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore creative director. “Our Color of the Year and Color Trends 2014 palette is a direct result of the fresh color cues and pastel trends we’ve seen throughout the home furnishing, fashion and even pop culture landscape.”

For the 2014 Color Trends collection, Benjamin Moore created a palette that is timeless and appealing to today’s homeowner or designer. The 23 colors included in the palette are intended to stand on their own, but also work well in harmony.

“We know that color is the ultimate form of personal expression, so we curated this collection to help consumers create beautiful spaces with confidence,” said O’Neill.

Note from Nancy:  This is not necessarily the same color that the other paint manufacturers will use for their 2014 color of the year.  We will have to wait and see.
