Benjamin Moore’s Colour of the Year: Shadow 2117-30

SHADOW 2117-30:
Colour of the Year 2017

Shadow is a rich, royal amethyst, relaxed and smokey in how it transitions through different light. Its choice as Benjamin Moore’s 2017 Colour of the Year celebrates a new colour confidence among homeowners and decorators who are now giving darker colours their time in the spotlight.

Benjamin Moore’s full 2017 Colour Trends palette is inspired by the ways light and shadow travel throughout a room during the day. Accompanying Shadow are 23 other colours, all rich and royal in their own right. Shadow’s regal purple tones are echoed in muted lilacs, sandy golds, deep reds and strong blues.

Check out the full 2017 palette, as well as Benjamin Moore’s behind-the-scenes story on the inspiration.
