When I met with my Ben Moore design rep the other day, she asked what I thought about the new 2014 Color Trends. I have to admit, as much as I am crazy about color and try to keep up with everything, I had not even really looked at the colors yet. Everything goes by so fast- read today or it is gone. For some reason, I just skipped over the rest of the new colors.

Of course I read all about the color of the year, Breath of Fresh Air:

Benjamin Moore states that Breath of Fresh Air 806 is the common thread that weaves through every color chosen for the Benjamin Moore Color Trends 2014 palette. I can see that.

Here is the Color Trends 2014 ‘new’ neutral palette:

What are your thoughts?  At first glance, I thought they were all pastels. Some are light such as Fruit Shake 2088-60:

And Distant Gray 2124-70:

But there are also quite a few of mid to darker shades such as Sparrow AF-720:
