It might not be the most inspiring choice for many people, but the folks behind the Benjamin Moore Color Trends 2017 edition have picked Shadow as the color for 2017.
For those that find it a bit gray, luckily Benjamin Moore have also put together a collection of palettes and colors that have a bit more life to them.
For example, try Guacamole 2144-10, which can be used to offset a brown and neutral to beige palette. It also works equally well with a pair of contrasting grays to create a sophisticated living room or stylish dining experience.
Equally, matching Grandfather Clock Brown 2096-30 with a light baby blue and the delightfully named Creme Fraiche lends a cool and relaxed feel to bedrooms, and works nicely with bathroom suites, too, especially if door frames and widow frames are picked out in contrasting paler hues.
Of course, if you like your bedroom or dining room to be more sultry and sexy, then Dinner Party AF-300, paired with Black Ink for the walls and trim gives a nice evening feel. It's worth pointing out that the abstract name belies its true color: Dinner Party is a deep red, but not too blush with it.
Finally, a modern kitchen with clean lines and quality, light-colored units would benefit from the exquisite Salamander 2050-10, paired with a neutral beige and brown trim. It's almost like the leather interior of a quality automobile, but with a contemporary twist.
Benjamin Moore has a whole range of tools that you can use to see which of their palettes would work best in your home. From painting virtual rooms, to pre-picked color matches, your ideal combination is just a click away.
And, if the Benjamin Moore Color Trends 2017 palette choices aren't for you, then the site has thousands of different hues and colors to suit any room and any mood; just dive in, and get creative!
