It’s that time again for paint companies to introduce their color of the year for 2016.
Benjamin Moore chose a shade called Simply White OC117 as their top trending color.
As with all colors, each of us has a visceral response. We hate a color or we love it. And sometimes we experience a neutral feeling; neither liking nor disliking.
Because Benjamin Moore chose white as their color of the year, I’ve chosen to list 10 reasons why this color could be the perfect one for you to paint your walls. If you already love it, these reasons will only highlight your choice. If you hate it, all the reasons in the world probably won’t change your mind.
However, if you’re on the fence about this color, these reasons might explain why it could be your color choice. By the way, while I love the color white, I have no Benjamin Moore stock!

SUPPORT CREATIVE ENDEAVORS

White remains constant in various light sources so there is no distraction with this neutral color. Consequently. it can favor concentration.

WHITE WORKS WELL WITH ALL COLORS

You can add any colors you choose into your room. It plays well with all colors.

WHITE AS THE BACKDROP FOR YOUR COLLECTIONS

Galleries and museums use white as their color choice because it doesn’t distract the eye. It allows whatever you’re displaying to take center stage.

OPEN FLOOR PLANS

If many rooms are seen in one glance, white is a foolproof way to co-ordinate all of the spaces into an integrated whole.

BLACK AND WHITE

This classic color combination is at once elegant, refined, sophisticated, and never, ever is considered out-of-style.

WHITE ALL YEAR ROUND

White works equally well in summer or winter. It has no season. You may choose to change various design elements that reflect a particular season, but you don’t have to change the wall color for those changes to work.

WHITE IS ALWAYS FRESH-LOOKING

It’s classic simplicity never fails and somehow it can help a room to look less cluttered.

WHITE WORKS FOR ALL DESIGN STYLES

No matter what your design style is, white walls will compliment it. White by it’s very nature doesn’t “fight” what surrounds it.

WHITE IS A VISUAL TRANQUILIZER

White’s ethereal quality is relaxing and a balm to the eye. It has the power to relax you in a totally subconscious way. It could be the perfect color to come home to after a busy and frenetic day.

ARCHITECT’S COLOR OF CHOICE

Architects choose white because it emphasizes an interior’s structure. You, too, might have architectural features that you want to bring attention to and the color white does that beautifully.
