Mixing and Matching Laminates with the 2014 Paint Colors of the Year


There has been quite a few "color of the year" stories in the news lately, especially from paint manufacturers. Formica Corporation had a little fun mixing and matching our laminates ... do you think we came close? 

Turning OakleafPPG Pittsburgh Paints named Turning Oakleaf, a buttercream yellow, as its 2014 Color of the Year. Part of the optimistic yellow family, the company describes Turning Oakleaf as “the perfect hue to reflect the spirit of pause and refresh” with a barely there, pastel-like quality soft enough to instill a quiet pause in even the most active of
environments, evoking tranquility.

Turning Oakleaf is one of the many 2014 Colors of the Year.

Breath of Fresh Air: Benjamin Moore selected "Breath of Fresh Air" (color number 806), an ethereal blue that serves as a livable and functional "new neutral." Benjamin Moore’s color choice is a “direct result of the fresh color cues and pastel trends we've seen throughout the home furnishing, fashion and even pop culture landscape.”

Although not a perfect match, we think Formica® Laminate 2007 Dali is pretty close!

Exclusive Plum: Sherwin-Williams announced Exclusive Plum as its Color of the Year 2014. This sophisticated violet balances cool blue and feisty red with a splash of gray. While we didn't have a perfect match, we had quite a few lovely coordinates.

Formica Corporation has quite a few laminate patterns that coordinate with Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year.

I've had Plum & Orchid paint tones in my L/D areas for over 10 years; all tones came from one color card. I still love it, even as we "freshen up" the house. (Guests also.)
