Colour Trends 2016: Simply White!

We are excited about the influential leader in paint, Benjamin Moore who just this month released its’ colour trend of 2016, Simply White OC-117. We would love to think that they named this white after us, but we can’t take all the credit. The good news is, the world renowned paint company is recognizing the beauty of the often under credited shade, white, with its’ declaration of Simply White OC-117 as the colour trend of 2016. After months of research at trend shows and with colour theory in hand, the paint genius’ came to their conclusions, and we couldn’t agree more.

Take a look at the possibilities of Simply White OC-117 and fall in love again with the timelessness and elegance of Simply White! 

Layered Whites:

We love that this look eludes simplicity and beauty through its’ variations of whites and the combination it creates with natural lighting. It’s’ subtle and elegant touches allows the combination of different whites to truly come through to create a unique atmosphere.

Natural Elements:

This look really brings in natural elements of wood, beams and anything rustic, creating natural beauty. We love the idea of natural wood displayed in the home and the warmth it provides against a soft white.

Bold Contrasts:

We love the idea of using white to enhance a bold colour, this creates more angles in the room by the white creating a softness to patterns and colour combinations. Contrast looks can easily be achieved here with the balance of a white, creating endless possibilities.
