It is a BIG departure from the past few years. as you can see below, pastels haven't been picked in a long time. And there is something fresh and pretty about them. They will drive a lot of product offerings in the next year or so, so keep an eye out.

Not to be outdone, Sherwin Williams chose Alabaster. Hmmm..... maybe they both decided white is the best? Interesting that they both chose a white neutral in the same year!! Accident? Or planned?

And since I'm living in Europe, I'll share the CotY from the biggest paint company here - AkzoNobel (Dulux, Sikkens, etc) and they picked Cherished Gold. Interestingly, shades of gold are the biggest sellers in the entire world. So maybe they're onto something.
So. Do you love any of them? Do you hate them? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
