Benjamin Moore recently revealed its 2024 Colour of the Year: Blue Nova CC-860, a space-themed shade which is a blend of blue and violet. The colour was inspired by a new star formed in space as well as visiting unknown places in hopes of gaining new experiences.

“Blue Nova CC-860 is an alluring mid-tone that balances depth and intrigue with classic appeal and reassurance,” said Andrea Magno, colour marketing & development director at Benjamin Moore.

“The Colour Trends 2024 palette tells a story of duality – juxtaposing light against dark, warm and cool, showcasing complementary and contrasting colour pairings. These contrasts invite us to break away from the ordinary to explore new places and collect colour memories that shape the hues used in our homes.”
