# 1 Hue Is Blue

February 17, 2014



Have you noticed that most all of the major paint companies has chosen the color blue as one of their top colors of 2014?

Benjamin Moore’s Breath Of Fresh Air 806:

Breath of Fresh Air is a barely-there soft blue. Very clean and cool that works well with clean whites. I also think pairing with navy would be an excellent color combination. It is part of Benjamin Moore’s “new” neutral palette, in which the company brings together 23 neutral colors that work in harmony when connecting rooms with color or in enhancing a room’s décor and accessories.

Pantone’s Placid Blue:



Another soft pastel, the color of the sky, this hue of blue brings a sense of openness and peacefulness to any room. Pantone’s 2014 color palette is a “colorful twist on traditional Spring shades”, including Radiant Orchid, Violet Tulip and Hemlock, which is a summery ornamental green.

Valspar’s Winter in Paris:



This blue is from their Zenergy palette that serve to restore spirits with a return to simplicity. Colors range from serene cool hues to grounded earthy tones to bold traditional colors, offering a wide variety of color choices to refresh any room in the home. Trend colors in this palette include serene greens and blues and cool hues that are restorative and unpretentious.

Sherwin Williams’s Capri Blue:

Brighter than the other pastel blues, Capri is a beautiful turquoise.

The new palettes seem to shift away from gray to more blues, greens, lavenders and pinks, don’t you agree? Do you think you would like to use these lighter blues in your home? Now you do not have to take my word for it- blue is the #1 hue!
