"Color Is . . . Hirshfield's." Our new collection features the best of time-honored international color systems. This new palette marks the culmination of years spent analyzing the best-selling color trends by world-renowned Color Systems International. Steve Ingerson and Mark Masica of Hirshfield's Edina were instrumental in the development of this palette. You'll find an extensive range of neutrals, arranged in a logical and more meaningful fashion across the bottom rows of the display. This more approachable layout makes COLOR IS. . . easier to use. Color step-downs on the large take-away chips are non-linear progressions (not mathematical) resulting in a more realistic population of the color space. What that means: a greater number of natural coloways that hit the elusive in-betweens.


Hirshfield's TREND Colors for 2017 are softer and more laid back.

They create a sense of relaxation, invitation and contemplation. The color of the Year is “Nomadic Travels” from the Groundwork collection. It is a true neutral; it can be warm in the sun and cool in the shade making it a great canvas for all of the other colors in your room or on the outside of your residence.

The color that ties things together—
GUILFORD GREEN.
BENJAMIM MOORE 2015 COLOR OF THE YEAR.

A neutral that’s a natural. A silvery green that works with,
well, everything. No worries. No second thoughts. Just a brush, dipped in a can, whooshed on a wall, and a whole lot of happily ever after.
