Color Of the Year- 2017
Benjamin Moore has released their color of the year and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Color of the Year, Shadow 2117-30. We are loving the undertones of deep purples in this tone. Some color pairings that would look great with Shadow would be different shades of purple, greens and ivory’s.
Usually when picking out paint colors there is some sort of inspiration behind it. This can come from anything from the outdoors, floral’s and even the latest fashion trends.
Here are some examples of the color inspiration pulled from floral’s and how it can be used in a space and the end result.
We also area loving their entire 2017 color palette. These are our Top four Benjamin Moore 2017 Colors
First on our top 4 would be Gentleman’s Gray 2062-20. This color is extremely on trend right now. The deep blackened blue is a very masculine tint reminding us of a well tailored suit. This color would look fantastic with metallic accessories, lighter blue’s, silvers and golden tans. This color is seen over and over in cabinetry and built in units. Bye Bye White Hello Deep Navy’s!
Here are some inspiration photos using Gentleman’s Gray.
Second on our list would be Knoxville Gray HC-160. Another dark and moody color in blue family. This color would look fantastic on an exterior all siding home it would instantly update the look. Or why not paint interior doors? Change your hardware to the popular bronze or matte gold, this would become a conversation starter for sure! Another look i love is using this moody color in a powder room, accenting with bohemian reds, porcelains and golds.
Third on the list Dinner Party AF-300. Although i do think that this next color is extremely bold to be used as a main all over wall color. It is very sophisticated with deep red and black undertones. I would absolutely use this color in small doses. Wether it be used on the front door of a home, or used in a DIY project re finishing an old piece of furniture. Another dramatic touch would be to paint the backs of a bookshelf for that daring focal point in a room.
Last but not the least Benjamin Moore’s Wet Concrete 2114-40. A Classic and elegant choice! This color can be used anywhere in a home. Looking especially elegant in and en-suite master bath. Or customized into a wall paper look with horizontal stripe panels. A bold move would be to paint out an entire room including ceilings and baseboards. You can easily bright up the space with light art work, furnishings and accessories.
We hope you enjoyed our look at our top 4 Benjamin Moore’s 2017 Color Palette.
