Move over wythe blue HC-143 because there’s a new favorite color and we’ll be painting the town a soft, sunny shade of yellow! Lemon sorbet 2019-60 has been named Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year for 2013.
“Lemon Sorbet is a perfect colour to begin invigorating change for 2013,” says Sharon Grech. “Colour has the power to evoke a mood and yellow, in its many variations, represents optimism and light for 2013.
This crisp, clean shade of light yellow radiates grace and simplicity. “It’s the perfect partner for the emerging palette of freshened, polished pastels that promise to be favorites in the coming year. Additionally, it’s the ideal transition color as we move from the more vibrant spectrum and mid-to-deep tone hues that we’ve been experiencing in home furnishings and fashions.” explains Sonu Mathew, Color Chats writer and Benjamin Moore’s senior interior designer.
Here Sonu walks us through why lemon sorbet was chosen as the color of the year with some beautiful imagery and possible color combinations.
This beautiful yellow harmonizes with other trending pastels in the mint, coral, pink, blue, and vanilla families. Uplifting without being overpowering, lemon sorbet complements almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.
