Benjamin Moore® Paint Color Trends – Shadow

Check out the Benjamin Moore Color Trends 2017. Whether you are painting the interior or exterior of a house or building, choosing which color you want to use can be a long and time-consuming process. You want it to set the mood of the room, but you don’t want it too shiny, too bright, too plain, or too bold. With Benjamin Moore’s 2016 color of the year being white last year, they are changing things up this year for the 2017 color of the year. Shadow 2117-30 is a rich, royal amethyst that brings life to any room. It flows well with any of its surroundings. Shadow 2117-30 can be placed in a room with copious amounts of sunlight such as a living room or kitchen to make the color look warmer, or in a darker room such as a bedroom or bathroom to give the color a more bold appearance.

Let light transform Shadow into a soft grey and set the tone of expectancy. Whether it be in the kitchen or living room, juxtapose the new color of the year with a calming, light green or white and the room will illuminate with warmth in the most comfortable spaces; a perfect start to the day.

Using Shadow as a more bold statement, the deepness of the hue paired with soft, light brown or orange will add a pop to a bedroom or bathroom. This statement color can offer a heavier, yet still put-together presence as day dissolves into night.
