Benjamin Moore’s colour of the year is an intriguing blue-green

By Denis Langlois

Harmony, according to Merriam-Webster, means an internal calm and has synonyms like tranquility, balance and unity.

The Cambridge dictionary goes a bit further, describing harmony as a situation in which people are peaceful and agree with each other or when things seem right or suitable together.

And following a tumultuous 2020 and difficult start to 2021, harmony, peace, unity and balance are all things that nearly everyone is craving right now.

For 2021, Benjamin Moore, the North American paint, colour and coatings brand, chose Aegean Teal as its colour of the year, describing the hue as an “intriguing blue-green that creates natural harmony and invites us to reflect and reset.”

Shades of blue-green, like Benjamin Moore’s Aegean Teal, can be found on many frames this season, as consumers look for eyewear that evokes feelings of calm, warmth and, of course, harmony.

Here are some of our favourites.
