Benjamin Moore Selects Simply White (OC-117) as Color of the Year 2016


After reviewing over 250 white selections, the Benjamin Moore Color Studio decided on Simply White OC-117 as their 2016 Color of the Year.

This is what Benjamin Moore Creative Director, Ellen O’Neill, had to say about it:

“The color white is transcendent, powerful and polarizing – it is either taken for granted or obsessed over. White is not just a design trend, it is a design essential. The popularity of white, the necessity of white, the mystique of white is quantifiable in our industry. Of the top ten best-selling Benjamin Moore colors, variants of white occupy five spots. It was inevitable that we would ultimately recognize white as our Color of the Year.”

The Benjamin Moore 2016 palette offers a range of whites that look good with any color, that never get old, and that always look right. Available at Babel’s and National Lumber locations across New England,
