Sherwin William’s 2018 Color of the Year: “Oceanside”Sherwin Williams 2018 color of the year, Oceanside.

A coalition of rich blue and vibrant green. A complex color, Oceanside bridges the gap between old and new, light and dark. With inspiration taken from world travel, the blue-green hue will add mystery and elegance to any space.

“People today have a growing sense of adventure, and it is making its way into even the coziest corners of our homes. We are craving things that remind us of bright folklore, like mermaids and expeditions across continents,” said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing. “Oceanside is the color of wanderlust right in our own homes.”

Benjamin Moore’s 2018 Color of the Year: “Caliente”Benjamin Moore 2018 color of the year, Caliente.

A vibrant and charismatic shade of red, Caliente has a deeply saturated color. Designed to stand out, even a single accent wall in this red-hot color can help energize and harmonize a tired space.

“Strong, radiant, and full of energy, Caliente AF-290 is total confidence. It is pleasing, passionate, and makes people feel special, like ‘red carpet treatment’,” said Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Design Intelligence.

Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year: “Ultra Violet”Pantone's 2018 color of the year, Ultra Violet.

Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. Inventive and imaginative, Ultra Violet will provide refuge from overstimulation.

“In interiors, Ultra Violet can transform a room into one of extraordinary self-expression, or conversely its polish can tone down a room with subdued, modern pairings. Adding spice and brightness, Ultra Violet calls attention to a tufted couch, piece of art or accent wall…” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
