Benjamin Moore recently announced their choice for 2017 Color of the Year: Shadow 2117-30. This deep purple is subtle and mysterious, adding depth to any room. If you’re like us, you’re already thinking about the ways you can incorporate this beautiful shade of purple into your interior design. Here are a few creative styles we’ve come up with.
Add a Purple Accent Wall
Accent walls are all the rage, and what looks more stately and formal than the deep purple Shadow 2117-30? Just in time for the holidays, you can add a dramatic touch to your home that will be sure to impress guests during Thanksgiving and Christmas. We recommend pairing a dark purple accent wall with a few thoughtfully placed gold accent pieces. The result is truly breathtaking.
Paint Purple Furniture
If you’re the kind of person who likes to get their hands dirty with a good DIY project, then you’re in luck! Diamond Hard paint from Majic Paints is an oil-based paint that looks just like acrylic. It’s great for crafts and projects like updating old furniture! The amazing color retention and glossy finish of this paint is perfect for capturing a deep purple hue. Stools at your kitchen island or chairs at the dining room table will look stately and modern when painted with a coat of dark purple Diamond Hard paint.
Finally, a great way to incorporate Benjamin Moore’s 2017 Color of the Year in your home is to refresh your windows with brand new dark purple window treatments. The subtle purple color is almost a neutral and sure to look luscious in a heavy, winter-ready fabric. Valances, window shadings, and floor length curtains all look fabulous in this impressive color! With subtle notes of Shadow 2117-30 around your home, you’ll be sure to impress guests as well as feel cozy and comfortable in your home this winter.
