Benjamin Moore Paint Trends for 2012

Benjamin Moore does a wonderful job with paint color trends for the year.  The 2012 color palette focuses on natural & earth tones (blues, browns, tans & grays) mixed with splashes of warm hues (berry & citrus colors).  This "nature" theme of color is evident in Benjamin Moore's color of the year selection, which is a blue.
