Behr has just released its 2017 color palette to bring you inspiration for your next décor update. The palette draws influence from personality, and is divided into three collections: Confident, Composed and Comfortable. The Confident collection is made up of bold and daring colors that create drama in a room.
The Composed collection features warm earthy tones and deep hues, suitable for a traditional, yet contemporary design. Then there’s the Comfortable palette. Full of muted pastels with a feminine feel, these colors are ideal for those who are less adventurous with color and prefer a more subtle finish.
