Benjamin Moore 2014 Color Trends

Where has the time gone!  I haven't posted a thing since August, somehow I missed the entire month of September!!  I can't believe there are only 3 months left in the year and 2014 is right around the corner........OMGoodness......who can think about 2014!  Well it turns out Benjamin Moore has given it some thought and has recently released its 2014 Color Trends. The color palette, dubbed "the 'new' neutrals" consists of 23 soothing colors.  So what's the latest color trend?  According to Ellen O'Neill, Creative Director of Benjamin Moore & Co. 

"We've begun to see a shift away from gray to tints of blues, greens, lavenders and pinks."

My immediate reaction after reading this was..."what, no gray!?!  But looking at the color palette I notice many colors I often use. These softer shades of color have a gray or brown base that makes them quiet, something I refer to as "quite color". Quiet colors are easy to live with, even the highly saturated colors are calming.
