Color Trends

Benjamin Moore is out with the color trends for 2017.  See them here.
The "color of the year" is Shadow 2117-30, a deep gray/amethyst.  What do you think?

A neighbor painted her long entry hall/gallery a color very similar last year- she was ahead of the curve!  It was dramatic and quite glam, and quite a contrast to our own home which had a similar hallway painted in white.

I'm in the process right now of painting our guest bedroom.  I've chosen Benjamin Moore's Coventry Gray because it is so easy on my eyes.  Then I'll paint our guest bath in Wickham Gray, which the light in that room turns into a soft gray/blue/green.

Paint is an easy and fun way to change the look of your home, and a new coat of paint freshens up your house so much.    Even just touching up the chips and scratches can make a huge difference.  If you are thinking of selling your home, do this!  And if you are looking at homes to buy, don't let a paint color you don't care for throw you off track.  Know that fresh walls are always just a paint can away.
