Behr Paint Reveals 2018 Color of the Year: 'In The Moment'

Tranquil, spruce blue In The Moment T18-15 will command the home décor and paint industry in 2018

Behr Paint announced its first-ever Color of the Year: In The Moment T18-15, a restorative blue-green hue honoring nature to create a soothing atmosphere. Versatile and welcoming, this grounding neutral is a serene backdrop to spaces where you unwind and recharge.

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."

The BEHR 2018 Color of the Year is introduced alongside the annual BEHR 2018 Color Trends palette, a spectrum of 20 hues forecasted to influence décor and design in the year ahead. The new palette captures the ever-evolving perception of "home," was brought to life Aug. 9 in New York City with an experiential BEHR Pop-Up Trend Home in the iconic Grand Central Terminal.
