Lemon Sorbet - Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2013

In an earlier post we revealed Benjamin Moore Color Trends for 2013. They chose beautiful colors that can work with just about any home furnishings. In this post we look more at Lemon Sorbet, their selection for 2013 Color of theYear, and where we are seeing this cheerful color.

Benjamin Moore states "This beautiful yellow harmonizes with other trending pastels in the mint, coral, pink, blue, and vanilla families. Uplifting without being overpowering, lemon sorbet (2019-60) complements almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces."

This elegant lemon yellow silk fabric is perfect for throw pillows as well as window panel curtains. Or better yet go with both to tie the room together. Take the plunge!

A nice soft subtle yellow and white paisley is always a nice compliment to any room. If you don't want to overpower the room, try it on one wall.  The lemon yellow and white lattice really brightens up any kitchen.

Adding blue to the ceiling in this dining room really completes the look in this room. In this nursery the lemon yellow looks soft against the all white furniture and window treatments.

We can't forget a DIY Project, of course! Repaint an old chair with the lemon yellow and use it as an accent piece among your home furnishings.
