Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore Paints have both announced their Color of the Year for 2018. Earlier Pantone predicted that the new palettes for 2018 will be intense colors and this holds true for the two colors selected thus far.
Sherwin Williams describes their color Oceanside “as a collision of rich blue with jewel-toned green, a color that is both accessible and elusive. A complex, deep color that offers a sense of the familiar with a hint of the unknown. Blues are universally perceived as intelligent, honest and interesting - making blue the most beloved color worldwide.”
Ellen O’Neill, of Benjamin Moore said, “Caliente is the signature color of a modern architectural masterpiece; a lush carpet rolled out for a grand arrival; the assured backdrop for a book-lined library; a powerful first impression on a glossy front door. The eye can’t help but follow its bold strokes. Harness the vitality.”
