Benjamin Moore's 2017 Colour of the Year


Drumroll, please!
Shadow – 2117-30

Benjamin Moore has officially announced its 2017 Colour of the Year, and it sure is causing a stir in the design world!

After researching design trends for the past year in furniture, art, fashion, and architecture, the design team at Benjamin Moore have decided that the colour of the year is a beautiful shade of amethyst.

Ellen O’Neill, Creative Director at Benjamin Moore says “It is a little bit rock and roll. It’s the color of the galaxy but also the color of a beautiful fig. It’s passion, it’s bravery, but it’s also silence. It can be electrified or softened. That’s what I like about it—it’s versatile.”

I find the colour to be dramatic, sophisticated, and classy. It’s a fabulously rich colour for an office, library, or dining room and it would definitely give a luxurious feel to any space.

What do you think of this beautiful shade of purple? Are you loving this choice?
