Benjamin Moore Names Luscious Lemon Sorbet their Color of the Year for 2013

Just when you thought your life would be defined by Tangerine Tango (named 2012 Color of the Year by Pantone), Benjamin Moore has recently piped up with its new pick. Breathe deeply, for you will want to take a bite out of this one.

Luscious Lemon Sorbet is Ben Moore’s Color of the Year for 2013. Not too sweet and not too sour, it’s the great connector color between the mid tones and saturated colors that abound in today’s home furnishings panacea. It’s also among a number of softer pastels emerging for 2013. Hmmm…maybe these are the reaction to all of that Tangerine Tango-ing?

Imagine this beautiful yellow harmonizing not only with other trending pastels in the mint, coral, pink, blue, and vanilla families, but let it warmly cut the coolest gray or lift azure blue to new heights. Slather it on a tray ceiling that is wrapped it in crisp white millwork, and you’ll enjoy perpetual sunshine in even a northern facing bedroom. Lusciously creamy, I ask you this…

One scoop, or two?
