EXCLUSIVE: Behr announces its first-ever Color of the Year


Choosing a paint color for your home can be an extremely daunting decision. While not permanent, painting is hard work -- so ideally, you'd be satisfied with your pick for a few years, at the very least.

Well, if you're in the market for some help and inspiration, Behr Paint just released its first-ever Color of the Year -- exclusively to AOL Lifestyle.

Drum roll, please!

The winning color is: "In The Moment T18-15, a restorative blue-green hue honoring nature to create a soothing atmosphere."

See it for yourself below:

"In The Moment speaks to our society's desire to disconnect and be present," said Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services at Behr. "Spruce blue, soft gray and lush green coalesce into a fresh shade that evokes a sense of sanctuary and relaxation amid our always-on lives. In The Moment crosses multiple design styles—global, coastal, modern—and pairs well with other subdued colors to create harmony for interiors or exteriors."

In addition to releasing its inaugural Color of the Year, Behr has also introduced a 2018 Color Trends palette (A.K.A. "20 hues forecasted to influence décor and design in the year ahead").

The BEHR 2018 Color Trends are available now, exclusively at The Home Depot stores nationwide. As home expert Sabrina Soto has advised us before, not trying out a paint color before committing to it is the biggest painting mistake a homeowner can make. So, stop in a Home Depot, take your time -- and happy painting!
