Color of the Year Simply White OC-117

The Narrative

Benjamin Moore Paper White OC-55 Regal Select Eggshell

Layered whites,

diffused light...

ambience

Surrender to the complexity of white.

In this abstract artist's townhouse, the interplay of whites and light creates nuance and subtle beauty.

Benjamin Moore Simply White OC-117 Aura Matte

Striking contrasts,

bold lines...

definition

Angles and edges become sharply defined as white is cut with black.

This digital designer's cabin conveys intent, celebrates form, as fearless, high chroma colors punctuate the black and white landscape.

White-washed walls,

hand-hewn beams...

In the ceramicist's studio, harmony reigns.

Coats of white paint refresh rustic boards and beams and take on a warm, soft glow.

Benjamin Moore Simply White OC-117 Aura Matte

Energizing color,

crisp white borders...

focus

White frames and flatters. In this gallerist's brownstone, white is the guide that directs the eye to multiple color encounters.
