Kelly-Moore Paints (San Carlos, California) recently announced the result of its Color of the Year 2018 designer survey, a color that the company says works well in any season.

The 2018 pick, Bahia Grass, is a subtle shade of green that the company calls “the epitome of a modern neutral, clearly tinted yet delicately balanced.”

The 2018 pick, Bahia Grass, is a subtle shade of green that the company calls “the epitome of a modern neutral, clearly tinted yet delicately balanced.”

“With the return of a ’70s influence, we begin to see browns become the dominant neutral in 2018; brick red, burnt orange, olive green and golden yellow jump in to the palette while coral, bright blue, indigo and aqua keep the palette fresh,” said Mary Lawlor, Manager of Color Marketing.

“The design community’s pick of Bahia Grass KM4782 as COTY 2018 is no surprise, as it’s the perfect companion to current and future trending colors.”

For the pick, Kelly-Moore surveyed a nationwide group of 15,000 members of the American Society of Interior Designers and other ASID-certified interior designers.

The company also released a forecast that included picks from each color family, and heavily leaned on neutrals such as grays (Foggy Day, Zinc Dust) and browns (Bear Hug, Stagecoach).
