2020 will not be missed and with it goes last years color pick, First Light, a pale pink that failed to gain popularity. With its vibrant-less hue it may have simply been too reflective of the year it represents.

As we look for ways to brighten our outlook with fresh updates to the spaces we find ourselves spending more time in, Aegean Teal's comforting hue just might be exactly what we need.




“Amid uncertainty, people yearn for stability. The colors we surround ourselves with can have a powerful impact on our emotions and wellbeing,” said 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.”
