Another 2021 Color of the Year: Teal's the Deal

October 20, 2020

Paint firms are continuing to release a range of colors as their picks for the hottest hues of 2021. Benjamin Moore is the latest in announcing its choice: “Aegean Teal,” its top color pick for the new year.

The blue-green midtone, with gray undertones, is “rooted in the elegant, hand-spun textures of the home,” Benjamin Moore says. The color evokes a sense of comfort, craft, nourishment, and inspiration, the paint company says.

“Amid uncertainty, people yearn for stability,” says Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore’s director of color marketing and development. “The colors we surround ourselves with can have a powerful impact on our emotions and well-being. 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.”

Benjamin Moore’s 2021 color palette also reflects a range of colors expected to trend in the new year, including clays, peaches, whites, and grays.
