Whether it is Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, or Behr paints, one very predominant direction for color trending in 2013 is that of sophisticated color, deep hues, an old world charm yet giving tradition a twist. Sherwin Williams entitles this Midnight Mystery: “Olde World Gold,” “Roycroft Bottle Green,””Mink.” Benjamin Moore reflects these same trends and labels it New Traditional with their “Evening Dove,” “Dusty Mauve,” and Behr follows with “Black Laquer,” “Daah-ling,” “Belladonna.”

If “Spiced Cider,” “Smokey Topaz,” “Pine Cone Pass,” “Folksong,” or “Mountain Stream” conjures any visions for earthy, comfy, natural texture surroundings, feel in luck for 2013. All three paint sources bring focus to the nature inspired, tranquil, cozy artisan dimension of space. Check out Sherwin Williamsʼ Honed Vitality, Benjamin Mooreʼs Artisan, and Behrʼs Apres Ski.

Want to make a statement? Color trending for 2013 encourages it by enhancing the environment with customization and personalization through the use of color. These colors are more saturated; they are bold and influenced by patterns and contemporary geometric elements. “Polo Blue” and “Marblehead Gold” by Benjamin Moore, “Twilight” and “Matrix” by Behr, and “Feverish Pink,” and “Calypso” by Sherwin Williams bring color to the forefront; as bold as these color appear, the use of black, white, and/or gray acts as cleansers to help complete a custom picture.

Think of soft hues, retro glamour, and a spa like setting… but with a new modern edge!  Sherwin Williams Vintage Moxie’s pastel hues are a bit bolder, incorporating gem tones like citrine, peridot, and amethyst.  Behr presented the Sweet Jazz Trend with a retro and art deco theme.  The Coastal Palette by Benjamin Moore introduces “Tranquility”, “Lemon Sorbet”, and “Simply White” bringing a “Spa” setting into other areas of the home.
