Did you hear the news?  Yesterday Better Homes and Gardens announced their picks for the color palette of the year.  

Rainforest Green  Warm Blush  Shape-Shifting Coral  
Oceanic Blue  Fresh Berry  Sophisticated Gray 

I think these colors are just lovely!

I'm fairly confident I've got one of them covered...

Here's a few gorgeous examples of the other colors:

How about you?  Do you prefer one of these colors over the others?  What do you think about the selections?

Would you like to comment?

    I love them all! The bottom three colors are pretty much our master bedroom!!

  3. I'm super inspired by your bold use of color:) LOVE your console table styling with the layered green and Chinoiserie blue and white. Cheers!

  4. Thanks for sharing! I saw that exact image on pinterest with the berry built-ins and thought I would paint an old armoire that exact hue. I think I may! Your home is gorgeous and I look to your blog everyday for inspiration.

  5. If anyone attempts to use "sophisticated grey" on a whole room and not just trim it could resemble a graveyard... That is a seriously DARK grey... not sure. The other colors I LOVE!!

    Such a great combination of colors - and yes, you are the queen of green :)

    Oh gosh, I love them all!! Much better than Marsala! :)

  8. Hmmm, it could be really pretty but would have to be done just right. They're all beautiful, I think I just want a copy of the photo from BHG with them all together on the leaves. It's so pretty!

  9. Oh, that sound like so much fun! That would definitely be an interesting, noteworthy piece! Thanks for reading, Tracy!

  10. I love other people who love color too! ;) Thanks Heather, that was one of my favorite looks from last summer, too.

  11. I missed the announcement but I LOVE it all! It looks amazing together!

  12. Love it esp. the fresh berry!

  13. If you ever need someone to housesit haha, I'll come keep an eye on those gorgeous lamp shades! They really look JUST like that fabric on your pillows with the pom poms. I love it all :)

  14. I think all the colors are wonderful! Amazingly, I'm loving the "Fresh Berry" and thinking about painting a small table that color.

  15. I love how the green looks with blush! I'm thinking about painting my powder room a deep olive green!
