Simply White

Benjamin Moore has announced their color of the year for 2016. It is OC-117 Simply White.

The color of the year is often selected by what is seen on the runway. 

Red Feathers, Design Inspiration

For example, Merlot was selected by Pantone for this reason.

Benjamin Moore takes a similar tack, drawing on many shows to determine what, in their opinion, will be the color of the year.


White has certainly been the color of the year for kitchens for quite a few years now.

Simply White falls somewhere between White Dove and Snowfall White.

White Dove OC-17
Simply White OC-117
Snowfall White OC-118

It is warmer than Snowfall, and a bit lighter than White Dove, the latter an architects and designer favorite.

What do you think? Is Simply White going to be your new go to white?
