Several of the newest fashion trends for 2014 have already been announced by those in the home décor and fashion world, with pastels colors among many designer’s top looks for the coming year. Benjamin Moore has taken the pastel trend a step further into the mainstream by introducing Breath of Fresh Air as its 2014 Color of the Year.
“We chose Breath of Fresh Air because we were seeing it across several different environments – it’s our new neutral,” said Benjamin Moore Creative Director Ellen O’Neill.
Be one of the first to bring this refreshing color into your home by choosing from our wide variety of rugs in this trendy hue. Our Mesmerize Bloom rug from the Kevin O’Brien collection features a pastel blue with purples and greens for a playful look. Opal, in lake, offers maximum comfort and is reversible for twice the use between cleanings. This variegated braid from the Williamsburg® collection brings relaxing spa tones into any home.
If you decide to coat your walls with the “new neutral,” a perfect complement is our Mesmerize Stripe rug in the sky colorway. The touch of Breath of Fresh Air in the stripes will really pop and will add warmth to any living room or bedroom. This loop hooked rug is handmade with pure wool yarns and backed with heavy cotton twill for stability.
“We chose [Breath of Fresh Air] to reflect the desire people have for change in their everyday lives,” Benjamin Moore spokeswoman Sharon Grech told The National Post. “It’s about breaking away, stepping back and reflecting on your life.”
There’s no better time than right now to upgrade your home with a new rug or coat of paint. Start off 2014 with a fresh and exciting new look – whether it’s with Breath of Fresh Air or any another color that speaks to you.
