Edmonton Decorator | Benjamin Moore Colour of the Year

Benjamin Moore is one of my favourite paint manufacturers. And in addition to Pantone, I look to them for the upcoming colour trends.

I've been saying for a while that green will become the new "IT" colour in interior design and decorating. So, I was pleased to see Benjamin Moore name Guilford Green as their colour of the year for 2015.

But, is this Benjamin Moore paint colour a "bore" or a "score"?

I will admit that I have not seen this colour in real life. But my verdict is, that this colour is a BORE. I love green for its calming effects, but I find this shade to be far too reminiscent of out dated hospital rooms and elder care facilities.

Benjamin Moore also published a list of of their "green family" for 2015. Thankfully, this list had some redeeming colours. I love the vibrancy of Split Pea! It would be great in a kitchen or living room. Antique Jade and Sea Horse both get honourable mention. The other colours are utterly forgettable.

So, what do you think of Benjamin Moore's Guilford Green? Do you rate it a "bore" or a "score"?

Don't forget to check out the rest of the design collection for 2015.
