BEHR® 2018 Color of the Year
In The Moment

Behr is pleased to announce the new 2018 Trend palette along with our 2018 Color of the Year, In The Moment. This cool, tranquil, spruce blue is inspired by nature and is a soothing, restorative coalescence of blue, gray and green. This comfortable color evokes a sense of sanctuary and relaxation amid our busy, always-on lives. In name and color, this hue speaks to our desire to take a break, be present and recharge. In The Moment is versatile and perfect to use for both interior and exterior projects. It also crosses multiple design styles, ideal for working with traditional, modern, coastal and global décor.

Create a mindful space

The idea of mindfulness is all about awareness. This theme is especially relevant as we look for ways to balance all of our activities, reduce stress and increase the moments of joy in our lives. Being mindful also includes the experiences we engage in to maximize our sense of ease and contentment. This translates into the home by means of simplification, curation and using color to enhance our living spaces.

Pleasing colors and visual cues support the idea of comfort and serenity. Decorate with intention by using colors that have personal meaning and give you the greatest sense of satisfaction. Bring the outdoors in with nature-inspired, soul-soothing hues like blue, green and tan.

Play with light and shade

Color is both a journey and a celebration. Exploring options is part of the design process and the fun. Dark colors convey an air of mystery and drama, while light colors create a feeling of spaciousness. Each imparts its own unique mood to create the perfect ambiance for your space.

Dark colors combined with light neutrals in furniture, flooring or other decorative accessories create a pleasing balance for both interior rooms and exterior color schemes.

FIND TRANQUILITY

Escape from stress in your own home sanctuary, surrounded by the people, objects and colors you love. Bedrooms and bathrooms are private spaces, perfect for colors that sweep you away from the cares of the outside world. Take a deep breath and enjoy a moment of relaxation in rooms touched by whisper white, misted green and shadowy lilac-gray.

Create a soft landing with muted green, blue, purple or brown. Use them in a bedroom to help promote a good night’s sleep, or as a gentle way to start the day in a master bath.

DEFINE YOUR MOOD

Have you ever noticed how color immediately sets the mood in a room? Capitalize on the positive effects by using color sparingly or generously throughout your home. Blues and greens calm and soothe, while oranges, yellows and reds are lively and optimistic.

Appealing color enhances our lives by lifting the mood or improving the energy of a space. A deep blue brings an extra note of tranquility to a quiet work area. Touches of orange, white trim and wood elements help warm and balance the room. Brilliant yellow instills an atmosphere of free-spirited fun!

ACCENT YOUR SPACE

Accents are touches of color strategically placed to create maximum impact in a room. Bright colors help enliven small spaces; dark colors create a sense of formality. Accents on the exterior highlight architectural details like front doors, windows and shutters.

Pops of color have a big impact and can be used to transition from one area of the house to another. They are perfect for stairway landings, hallways and entrances. Use them to highlight a window with a graphic color block or to showcase a door.
