Color of the Month: In the Moment

A sitting area with an orange cushy chair, side table with a world globe on it and a rug that is blue-based and has a colorful print of the world on it. The wall in the room is painted in the color: In The Moment. The words “Let’s Go on an Adventure” are stenciled on the wall.

October is a month of transitions, especially as the weather gently morphs from hot and humid to cool and crisp. Peace and tranquility permeate the air during a soothing hike outdoors or when getting into comfort mode inside. The blue-green hue of Behr’s In The Moment T18-15 evokes a natural, calming balance that makes many aspects of life even better, which is why we’ve chosen it as October’s Color of the Month.

In The Moment is one of those colors that works well indoors and out. On a home’s exterior, this spruce-like hue complements white trim, and a forest green door. It adds a calming vibe as the backdrop for an outdoor seating area, too, making the space absolutely ideal for neighborly chats or unwinding with a favorite book and cup of tea.

In The Moment immediately makes a living room feel more cozy and peaceful. This tone plays well with hardwood floors, with white or gray furniture, and even with silver, copper or brass elements. In the Moment is also an excellent option for adding a sense of balance to a room with wainscoting painted in deep or bold hues such as eggplant or forest green. This hue makes the room feel brighter, more comforting and more inviting at the same time.

Add a sense of hygge, the Danish concept for coziness, comfort and well-being.  A bathroom becomes an almost magical sanctuary with In The Moment on its walls. Whether the bathroom’s style is coastal or a mix of classic and modern, this blue-green hue takes on a calming aquatic vibe. Accent the room with hints of silver and soft, warm whites to round out the soothing decor.

Even the kitchen benefits from the beauty of In The Moment. This shade looks exceptionally stunning in a kitchen adorned with white cabinets and light flooring or countertops. Sandy tan shades found in light-colored woods or woven baskets stand out and add even more of a natural, comforting vibe to the space.

    I just painted my small guest bathroom with “In the Moment” (T18-15). There is no natural light. The bathroom has hardwood floors. I am at a loss as to what color towels and rugs to put in there. Help!

      Hi Bernice,
      Light Beige, Natural or White towels will look nice and lighten up the room a bit.
