Benjamin Moore

Lemon Sorbet is Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year for 2013.

Luscious lemon sorbet (2019-60) is the perfect transitional color between the mid-tones and saturated colors seen in today’s home furnishings and the softer, lighter pastels which are emerging for 2013.

This beautiful pastel yellow pairs well with other trending pastels of mint, coral, pink, blue, and vanilla.
