Benjamin Moore Lemon Sorbet 2019-60

The palette is shifting from super saturated and strong hues to softer, lighter pastel shades. It’s the perfect partner for the emerging palette of freshened, polished pastels that promise to be favorites in the coming year. Additionally, it’s the ideal transition color as we move from the more vibrant spectrum and mid-to-deep tone hues that we’ve been experiencing in home furnishings and fashions.

Yellow has always been seen as an optimistic color. This may be one of the reasons behind the selection of Lemon Sorbet as the color of the year.

As the world seems to be gradually turning the corner on recessionary times, this whispery tint of the color is timely and evocative of the uptick. As for the move to pastels they convey innocence and typically have a calming influence.
