BEHR’s 2023 Color of the Year is a soft white hue with a warm undertone. Its versatility can create a cozy home space. Simple pleasures take on immense value with this light, balanced, and hopeful white.

No matter your creative skills, Blank Canvas lets you be the artist to create the vision of your dreams. As a creamy and engaging white that is not too warm or cool, it opens a limitless world of possibilities. We love how it renews a space with a sense of lightness and well-being.

This color is anything but stark and uninspired, greeting you like an old friend who can boost your mood without saying a word.
