The color gurus at Benjamin Moore recently revealed their pick for 2016 Color of the Year – announcing SIMPLY WHITE!
Benjamin Moore’s creative director Ellen O’Neill noted several observations about their choice – and about white in general – including the following:
- “White is a perfect way to define a space in a beautiful and sophisticated way.”
- “White doesn’t go in and out of style. It can be elevated to a design tool, especially when it’s texturized and layered with other whites.”
- “Once you start to see the nuances of the color, the look is very elegant, very refined, very deliberate.”
At La Lune Collection we whole-heartedly salute this color pick. Our own wood finishes include a wealth of rich shades of white – and to get into the spirit of this ‘white inspiration’, we’re sharing a dozen of our beautiful rustic La Lune furniture pieces ‘wearing’ some of our magnificent white finishes, including Antique White, Whitewash, Navajo, Sandstone, Taupe, and more.
