There was a time when this hue was simply labeled “pink” and viewed as a focal color. My, how things have changed. Today, it’s considered a staple neutral… as much as black, white, gray, beige, navy and other go-to shades. That’s because it blends so beautifully with other colors.

Of course, First Light isn't the only shade in the spotlight. It joins the following Benjamin Moore shades to make up their 10 Color Trends 2020 Pallete:

We love this blend of soothing pastels against deeper shades of blues and greens. The contrast created when these hues come together is always striking and interesting.

Of course, sticking with either lighter or darker shades exclusively also has eye-catching results.

Don't shy away from color in every area of your home. Whether you update your paint or simply incorporate new accent elements (decorative pillows, rugs, etc.), it's an easy way to freshen up your surroundings.
