Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year, Shadow 2117-30
“Shadow” has been crowned the 2017 Color of the Year by American paint company, Benjamin Moore & Company. A dramatic statement hue, this deep, rich shade of purple evokes an air of sophistication. Shadow can be used to make a room feel cozy.
I would recommend this splashing this color in a bedroom or living/entertaining area. The use of the color would also pair nicely with a neutral palette by adding this deep amethyst to chairs, pillows, and other accent pieces. As always, this is a great easy way to test out a new color and decide how it makes you feel.
Shadow, is a moody hue – one that creeps as a companion to light. The beauty of this color is in soft, dim ambient lighting, Shadow can make one feel cozy and comfortable. In contrast, with splashes of bright light, Shadow can be a defining purple, dark and a full bodied violet.
I’m loving Shadow! Any opportunity that I can get to play in a shade of purple, makes me giddy and happy. As a lover of dark purple, this color is truly one that I can’t wait to use in the coming year.
How do you feel about Shadow? Is a strong “yea” with love or are you feeling more down and blah? Just me a line below and let me know of some of your ideas for hiding in Shadow in 2017!
Sending you dreamy bliss,
