The wording here is a little fuzzy, but you get the idea of the Pantone color palete. Alot of happy colors. Benjamin Moore’s color of the year is Guilford Green HC-116. Although not quite a bright happy color, but a fresh green. I like this color. It’s both soothing and fresh so a great option for bedrooms or living rooms. Other Benjamin Moore colors for 2015
