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!

I love the softness of Rose Quartz because it’s so subtle.  But, a little goes a long way, especially in the pretty softness of these dinner plates.  And I love the pink himalayan salt in the candle holders to tie the whole look together!

My daughter, Jillian, sent me this picture to feature for our Rose Quartz blog post, and I had to call her because I couldn’t figure out what the rose color product was.  This beautiful flower looked so real, I had no idea that in fact it was a napkin ring!  Just made me love it all the more!

These glasses remind me of my grandmother’s house.  A pretty pale pink cocktail glass that just looks so elegant!

This sweet little stool in such a soft pastel is a pretty accent for the bold mirrored dressing table.

Remember ruffled pillows??  Come on, I know you had them!  A beautiful look on a vintage piece.  Add a special crystal chandelier and you have a perfect dreamy bedroom nook.

I don’t know what I love more, the color, or the expanse of the “headboard wall”.  And, the built-in light switches keep everything elegantly within reach.  Such a soothing way to end the day…
