Selection for Benjamin Moore’s color of the year started months before the pandemic, so it was prescient that the paint company was inspired by the comfort of the home when creating the Color Trends 2021 palette.
While we weren’t able to gather in person this year, the Future of Home conference transformed into a streaming show, peppered with opportunities to connect with speakers and panelists live. For the second day of virtual programming, we explored the many ways to shape our own “new normal,” and why the design industry’s future is brighter than it may seem.
In a world that already feels upended, our speakers offered a bracing look at just how much industry disruption is still to come—and unpacked the opportunities those forces of change present for all of us. They also talked about the role of beauty, purpose, authenticity, diversity and craft in today’s design world.
The Benjamin Moore Color Portfolio app and ColorReader device make the color selection process quick and collaborative, allowing designers to instantly show their client the best matches for a project.
