Benjamin Moore as announced Aegean Teal as its 2021 Color of the Year.

Paint, color and coatings brand Benjamin Moore has revealed its Color of the Year 2021 as Aegean Teal ­— "an intriguing blue-green that creates natural harmony and invites us to reflect and reset." Rooted in the elegant, handspun textures of the home, the Benjamin Moore Color Trends 2021 palette is designed to comfort as it uplifts.

In an intimate look at the home, Color Trends 2021 begins in the kitchen, exploring how this intersection of craft, nourishment and community breathes color and design inspiration into the rest of the living space, the company says. The Color Trends 2021 palette and the Color of the Year reflect this grounded sensibility with warm, sunbaked hues that play to the senses.
“Amid uncertainty, people yearn for stability. The colors we surround ourselves with can have a powerful impact on our emotions and wellbeing,” says Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore Director of Color Marketing & Development. “Aegean Teal 2136-40 and the corresponding Color Trends 2021 palette express a welcoming, lived-in quality that celebrates the connections and real moments that take place within the home.”
