This is the time of the year when many paint manufactures choose their color of the year. For 2016, the color that is sticking out as the clear leader is off-white (or shades of it). 

Manufacturers Benjamin Moore, Glidden, Sherwin-Williams and Behr are all displaying off-white in their trends or color of 2016. Jennifer Ott describes how this color can be used: 

"Here’s another room clad in Simply White, from Benjamin Moore. White spaces can often feel cold and sterile, but you can counteract this if your space has striking architectural details and charming furniture, fixtures or accessories. In fact, the white wall color allows these details to take center stage where a vibrant color would be too distracting."
