2020 Colour of the year

The new year is just around the corner, and what better reason to inject a touch of rosy cheer to your home. According to House Beautiful, Benjamin Moore has named ‘First light’ a soft and dusky pink as the colour of 2020 and we are thrilled to say our amazing furnishing company are always right on trend, using examples of our beautiful show homes, we hope this inspires you to incorporate ‘first light’ into your own home.

First light has been chosen to ‘reflect the air of positivity’ upon starting a brand new decade.

It’s a perfect shade to compliment a whole host of styles. Team the light pink tone with other warm neutrals to add a burst of joy into a room.

Helen Shaw, director of Benjamin Moore UK explains ‘Over the last few seasons, we have gradually seen neutrals with pink and red undertones taking over from our traditionally cooler neutrals.’

Why not pair pink and red throw cushions with traditional greys and creams to integrate this trend in your furnishings.

First light is not just a colour, it’s a lifestyle.

Andrea Magno director of colour marketing and development for Benjamin Moore says ‘First light represents a new dawn of idealism, design and living.’

As the year comes to a close, it’s time to look to the future and it may be time to alter your mindset as well as your décor. First light reflects a new definition of the home, a colour to embody the core needs in life; comfort, self- expression and ultimately optimism.
