The Top Paint Colors for 2017
Benjamin Moore’s color of the year is Shadow, a deep blue-gray that, in different lighting, can appear to be closer to coal or amethyst. A great color to use for an accent (door frames, painted sconces, or mantle) or if you’re feeling very bold, an entire wall, Shadow coordinates perfectly with a wide selection of colors in the Benjamin Moore collection.
Sherwin-Williams chose Poised Taupe as their color for 2017. Touted as the perfect balance of warm and cool, this deep yet not dark gray is a great background color and coordinates well with most traditional décor and furniture.
The Composed palette is perfect for sophisticated homes not afraid of deep color. The earthy tones here focus on blues and grays with a hint of brown, topped off with the accent color of a soft magenta. Use these colors as a backdrop to draw attention to stand-out furniture pieces. They go great with the popular brass fixtures and accent pieces that are currently in style.
The Confident Palette is bright and bold, with lots of yellow, orange and red tones. These colors are just right for an accent wall or to bring a splash of color to an otherwise understated space.
So if you’re looking for color inspiration for your new home or are redecorating, consider these colors as you design your new space.
