2016 Paint Color Rundown

Color Theory 2016 Color Combo of the Year

Barely There CSP-725 & Antique Glass CSP-695

The Color Theory Color Combo of the Year is Barely There and Antique Glass, both colors out of the Benjamin Moore Color Stories Collection. We love these colors and love the way they look in a real space. Barely There in action is a faint grey, that's really closer to white. It's calming and cool, with a slight hint of blue-green which makes it an excellent pairing with Antique Glass. It's perfect as a neutral but light enough to work as trim. Antique Glass is a calming hip teal. Very current and in, and so fun in a modern home.

You can use this combination in a variety of ways. For an off-beat, against the common grain look, paint the walls Barely There and the Trim and Doors Antique Glass like the photo above. It's bright and vibrant, full of life and current. Not so sure about unconventional trim? Put Antique Glass on your kitchen cabinets and they'll jump right off of the wall. Truly awesome.

Flip the scheme painting the trim in your home Barely There and paint your kitchen, dining room or a bathroom in Antique Glass. If you have concrete flooring Antique Glass is a great option. It makes your floor look like an oceanic floor that you just want to dive into.
