Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2021

Benjamin Moore’s research team works year-round to determine the ultimate color of the year and create a complementary color palette to accompany it. For the upcoming year, designers wanted to focus on the tranquility of being at home and decided to choose colors to illuminate that idea. 

The 2021 Color of the Year from Benjamin Moore is Aegean Teal 2136-40, a pliant blue-green color that feels calming and alluring like the sea. Learn more about Aegean Teal below and see how it’ll transform your home into a place of solace.

Aegean Teal: 2021 Color of the Year 

2021 is the year of reflection and new beginnings. One way to do this is by bringing new colors into your home that provoke change which is precisely what Aegean Teal intends to do. This color is described as being “intriguing, balanced, and deeply soothing to create natural harmony.” Aegean Teal invokes feelings of comfort and radiates a warmth that helps nourish your spirits.  

Unlike most blue-green colors that are cool-toned, Aegean Teal is described as being “sunbaked” meaning it has underlying warm tones. To complement this, the other colors in the Color Trends 2021 palette are also warm-toned. 

Be on the lookout for Aegean Teal to show up in accent pieces around the living room or as the living room’s own wall color. You can even bring this color into your kitchen by painting your cabinets or kitchen walls and pairing them with neutral colors and textures.
