Get Your Home Holiday-Ready with Ben Moore’s Color of the Year

The holidays are on their way, and so are your holiday guests. To get your home ready for a season of good cheer, there’s nothing that brightens up a space more than a fresh coat of paint.

What’s also nice about painting before the holidays is that you can select colors that do double duty – they play off your seasonal decor, yet remain relevant the whole year through. Sound interesting? Then we have a palette to inspire you.guilford green

Benjamin Moore just announced their 2015 Color of the Year: Guilford Green. 

It’s a neutral , silvery green (how “holiday” is that?) that ties together the other sublime shades in Ben Moore’s 2015 Color Trends collection. Layering these colors throughout your home helps to create a graceful flow from room to room. Four main color families are featured for 2015: Berry, Green, Blush and Blue. Again – gotta love the timeliness of these new colors… Berry + Green = Beautifully festive!

color ideasTo see how some of these gorgeous paint color combinations might look, Benjamin Moore has a couple of great online tools:

Personal Color Viewer – A virtual visualizer lets you see how paint colors will look before you even pick up a brush.

Color Gallery – Color selection tool with access to their 3,500 colors and countless color combinations.

Of course, choosing paint colors isn’t always something that can be done online. It may be a way to get started, but talking it out with a real live person often feels much more reassuring.  That’s what we’re here for…Snow’s paint department is always eager and ready to help.
