The Colour of the Year – 2015
I’m excited to announce that Benjamin Moore has just released its Colour of the Year for 2015…
Why is Guilford Green so great?
It’s green without being obvious about it. Some greens are too strong and can make you feel committed to a colour or style. Other greens are so subtle that the undertone only exposes itself in the right light – quite non-committal.
Guilford Green, with its soft silvery undertones, can shift into any style seamlessly without imprinting a specific ‘look’, becoming obnoxiously colourful or being so subtle that you might as well paint your walls gray and call it a day.
Where can you use Guilford Green?
Because of Guilford Green’s neutral sensibilities, it can be used almost anywhere. Whether you have a north facing bedroom or a south facing living room, Guilford Green has the right depth and the undertone to accommodate almost every decorative need.

Guilford Green looks stunning in this tone-on-tone bedroom. The look is soothing and romantic with its feminine accents and country chic touches.

Guilford Green almost looks like a warm green in this sunny and fresh room. Paired with a camel colour, fresh whites and vivid greens, Guilford Green looks warm and welcoming!
Via Bold Kohler
This bathroom looks clean, fresh and slightly country with its wide plank wood floors and Guilford Green on the walls. Guilford almost seems like a neutral in this bathroom as you never feel overwhelmed by its colour.
Guilford Green with Different Wood Tones
Guilford Green is the perfect complement to wood tones as its cool tone naturally reacts with warm toned woods to create a balanced palette.

With these warm wood tones, Guilford Green levels things out visually so that there’s the perfect warm/cool balance in this dining room.
Via Benjamin Moore
Guilford Green was paired with darker woods here for a more contemporary, but still warm and welcoming look.
