A fresh coat of paint can offer a new outlook. But where to begin?
Use the “Color of the Year” selected by Sherwin-Williams (Naval SW 6244) and Benjamin Moore (First Light 2102-70) as starting points at your dental practice.
“Both colors foreshadow a shift in Interior Design trends from cool, gray neutrals to more welcoming, colorful interior spaces. Pair either paint color with white and gold accents for an updated Art Deco look – a trend that is gaining popularity. Or use both colors together to create a classic color palette!”Megan Chuzas, Interior Designer with Benco Dental CenterPoint Design.
Anchors aweigh with calming Naval
Sherwin-Williams describes their 2020 “Color of the Year, Naval SW 6244, as a rich navy that creates a calm and grounding environment infused with quiet confidence. And, according to the paint experts, “While you may think navy’s been done before – it’s never been done like this.”
Looking beyond the blue, this color is known to offer “infinite calmness and inspiration” whether it is used for the whole room, or just an accent piece.
According to Sherwin-Williams.com “Gold metallic accents and paint colors such as Tarnished Trumpet SW 9026 or Midday SW 6695 bring warmth to navy’s boldness for a pairing that’s meant to be, while shades of green and paint colors such as Kale Green SW 6460 introduce biophilia for a grounding, down-to-earth presence.”
The First Light for a ‘bright new decade’
“A fresh palette. A revitalized spirit. A soft, rosy hue blooming with potential.” Benjamin Moore describes their Color of the Year 2020, First Light 2102-70, as “the backdrop for a bright new decade”.
Benjamin Moore’s First Light offers a mixture between both warm and cool color components, which makes it easy to pair. It can be matched with a warm chocolate brown and light mauve, or a light taupe with a cool brown.
“Let’s use color to express ourselves, be a little more upbeat, and happy,” says Hannah Yeo, Color & Design Manager at Benjamin Moore & Co. “We all need that optimism in our lives.”
Ready to begin an adventure in color at your practice?
While these shades vary from two different sides of the color wheel, they can tie together.
