Better Homes & Gardens debuts this year’s color palette
Mar 15, 2016

Better Homes and Gardens recently announced its 2016 Color Palette of the Year, naming five picks, among them a sophisticated pink that functions as a neutral (like Gentle Blush 2084-70 by Benjamin Moore); a muted gray (Foil DE6360 by Dunn-Edwards); a midtone blue (Smoke Blue PPG451-5 by Pittsburgh Paints); a green with a silvery hint (Smoke Bell RL1599 by Ralph Lauren Paint); and an “energetic orange” (Tango 6649 by Sherwin-Williams).

The magazine explains the appeal of this year’s palette: “What’s the secret to color happiness? In a word: balance. This year's palette is a yin and yang of vibrant and calm, cool and warm, rich and not-too-sweet. The steely blue is gutsy but congenial—it plays nicely with everything. Blush pink and minty green are as soft and comfy as a favorite blanket, but all grown up. And those little zings of orange are like moments of pure joy—small and fleeting, but they energize everything they touch.”
