Partner Spotlight Webinar: The Human Color Experience + Color Trends


Some colors may be calming and relaxing, while other hues may be energizing and lively.  Colors are known to create feelings of joy, while others leave us feeling unsettled. Color has the incredible ability to evoke both physical and emotional reactions in humans that are unique to each individual, making this a highly subjective topic. 

By understanding the ways in which color impacts humans on both physical and emotional levels, we are better equipped to select hues for our spaces that contribute to a desired sensibility.  Likewise, color is an ideal communication tool, using the many associations had with colors across the spectrum. 

This course on Wednesday, October 21 at 3:00 p.mET explores physical and emotional responses to color that shape our color preferences, in addition to insight on color trends with the Color Trends 2021 Palette and Color of the Year. 

Founded in 1883, Benjamin Moore is North America’s favorite paint, color and coatings brand. A leading manufacturer of premium quality residential and commercial coatings, Benjamin Moore maintains a relentless commitment to innovation and sustainable manufacturing practices.
