Let's begin the 2012 Paint Colour Trend series with one of THE premier paint companies in the world, Benjamin Moore.
Benjamin Moore's 2012 forecast features a beautiful blue colour called Wythe Blue. It is also their 2012 colour of the year. Stunning!
This colour is part of the Earth & Sky Palette. The colours featured in this dining room are as follows:
walls: wythe blue (HC-143), ceiling: battenberg (AF-70), trim: storm cloud gray (2140-40).
This is Benjamin Moore's description of Wythe Blue:
Much more versatile than you may think, blue is truly a classic color. It has universal appeal, never goes out of style, and is overwhelmingly chosen as a color favorite across North America. It evokes the sea and sky, physically calms us, and symbolizes trust and commitment.
Because of the influence that blue has in our world today, we have chosen wythe blue (HC-143) as Benjamin Moore's 2012 Color of the Year. It's a beautiful, calming hue that has an element of heritage and offers grounding rootedness, providing comfort and stability.
I agree!! Look at how adaptable this colour is:

Wythe Blue is so versatile. It looks great with antiques, espresso brown finishes, white fabrics and beadboard.
