Last week I received the new color palette from Benjamin Moore for 2013. The interesting thing about color is that it reflects the current pulse of the country and mood of the economic climate. Colors in 2013 are based on recycling principles - not only of what we shed, but what we repurpose. "As we look to the future, we find our ideas are rooted in the past" relates Benjamin Moore's Andrea Magno. "What's new is in the details."
