I love the new year’s peace, the quiet reflection of New Year’s Day, and the break we all get in our usual hustle and bustle of a work week. If you haven’t already, be sure to find the time to sit down and think about your goals and resolutions for this year. Every new year represents a fresh start and fresh opportunities. That’s why I was delighted to see that many brands chose shades of white as this year’s color of the year. Aren’t we all ready for something fresh and clean for 2023?
Everyone from Pantone to Martha Stewart comes out with a color of the year every year. Some of them take off, and others make you wonder. Not every color is going to be universally loved for every region and design style. Behr’s color of the year has resonated with me this year and feels like what our clients are ready for.
Start with a Blank Canvas
Behr has chosen “blank canvas” as their color of the year. If you still need to download my color guide, check it out here! What a great way to begin a new year and a new project with a blank canvas.
In the color guide, I go into how we layer color into our client’s spaces in a personal yet controlled manner and how it always starts with a neutral backdrop for the room.
Time for a Transformation
Blank canvas by Behr has a warm undertone, which I, for one, am delighted to see. In case you hadn’t already realized, I’m over the whole house of grey trend. It’s overdone and unoriginal at this point. I love a little more color, and even if I’m sticking to neutrals, they are much more dynamic with a range of tones and textures. Behr’s blank canvas would make a wonderfully versatile backdrop to any project.
If you love neutrals but are also in the same place, I am – tired of grey – you may want to grab a copy of our color guide. Did I mention it’s free? The last page has my favorite never fail neutral shades that appear on repeat in our projects. This would be a great way to start if you’re looking to refresh your space in 2023.
