Have you ever asked what does that mean and why do we need to know that or even how is that chosen?  Well, I am glad you asked

The announcement of “Colors of the Year” in the Paint World  usually refers to a selection made by various paint companies or industry experts. These colors are chosen to represent current trends.  The chosen Color of the Year is a way to inspire and guide consumers in their interior and exterior design choices.

How are these color selections determined? They are usually influenced by a variety of factors, including fashion, art, global events, and the overall mood and atmosphere the colors are believed to evoke.
