Benjamin Moore is seeing a shift away from gray to pastels and in a response, introduced a palette of 23 colors called The “New” Neutral Palette. These colors can be described as “…colors that can make a room happy…to lift the spirit…a lighter touch”

“This palette is a reaction to all the color cues that we have noticed popping up in the home furnishing industry… textiles, carpets, wallpapers, tabletops and pottery, as well as color schemes that emerge in landscape design, the auto industry, fashion, and graphics.

“As color rarely exists in isolation, we have designed a palette of 23 colors that work well together. There is harmony among the colors. There is an art to sequencing color from one room to another—hallways are the arteries of the house, rooms radiate off the hallways and this palette helps the transition because the colors flow seamlessly. – Ellen O’Neill, Creative Director, Benjamin Moore & Co.
