Benjamin Moore's Colour of the Year

Benjamin Moore has done a complete change from last years colour of the year being Simply White OC-117 to this years gorgeous dark lilac Shadow 2117-30. This gorgeous mid purple creates warmth ambiance and depth. This reintroduction of colour into the home is refreshing. It helps create a mood as well provide interest and personality.

Here are some great inspiration images of mid toned purples like Benjamin Moore's Shadow and how to use them in your home. 

Love purple but not ready for full saturation - try this look balanced with metals and neutrals. Still rich and beautiful but does not need as much of a commitment to the colour -change your wall colour to your next favourite colour and reay to move on to your next look.:

Shadow is a smokey purple that isn't for the faint of heart, but it is sure to add just the right amount of romance and ambiance in your home.
