Color of the Year 2014

April 3, 2014


0312_color-blueroom3-lLast year, I told you about Coastal Living Magazine’s big announcement that “Sea Glass” was their color of the year. (click here for the story) It was huge. News stations swarmed the Crayola headquarters for minute by minute updates. Paint stores were depleted of Sea Glass and those who couldn’t find a can of Sea Glass were crushed, shamed and ridiculed by those who pridefully painted their kitchen chairs, picture frames and bathroom walls trendy Sea Glass.

splashing-around-lMoving on to this year, anticipation has been running at an all time high. How could Coastal Living possibly top Sea Glass? What could ever be better than that soft greenish-blueish-oceany color? Perhaps something to counter the softness? Something bright and bold? Something daring and powerful?

And then, Coastal Living made the long awaited announcement.

The all-new, color of the year 2014 is . . .


The scandal and thrill of it all. No one around here can talk about anything else.


I don’t know how to deal with such monumental change.

I’m already bracing myself for next year.


Who knows what they’ll think of next. Aqua? Teal?

The innovation is mind blowing!


All these beautiful coastal images can be found with much more detail at one of my favorite magazines, Coastal Living.  Click here for the riveting story. I’ll be busy repainting all my Sea Glass to Turquoise so you won’t laugh at me.

 What’s your official color of 2014?
