The reaction to Benjamin Moore’s 2017 Color of the Year has been a bit of surprise and delight. Shadow 2117-30 is a deep, dark, subtle mixture of charcoal and purple.
“I love it. It’s sophisticated, warm, and fresh. I can see it in a library or a small office. It would make a room feel cozy,” says designer Ally Banks of Ally Banks Interiors in the District, who is using the color on chairs, accent pillows and stools in a current project. – Washington Post
It’s the color of the galaxy but also the color of a beautiful fig,” said Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore’s creative director. “It is a color that calls to mind a ‘past,’ yet it can also make a contemporary, color-confident statement.”
Shadow 2117-30 is part of a bolder 2017 Color Trends palette — 23 colors that represent Benjamin Moore’s view on the year’s most influential hues.
