Color Feature: SHADOW

As one of the first brands to name a color of the year for 2017, Benjamin Moore has recently chosen “Shadow”.  This deep, rich, purple hue is the ultimate shade of luxury.  If you’re looking to experiment with adding a little bit of a boldness to your home without going too “bright”, then Shadow may be the perfect color to test out!

I love that it adds such glamour, yet still has a subtlety that keeps the color practical.  What do you think of Shadow?  Is there a room in your home that would look great with this updated, bold look?  Here are a few ideas to get you started!

Orange and Black Aren’t Just For Halloween

Why is it that orange and black only appear in the Fall or for Halloween?  Used appropriately, they can be striking additions to your home year round.  Here are some of our favorite finds for those not-so-spooky colors!

 

High gloss, bright orange tile wall, and black desks with a granite top – such a cool office!
