Over the next month or so Benjamin Moore is introducing a line of Full-Spectrum paints. I am so excited! I know, I am a color-ista and a bit of a color geek! Full spectrum colors will use from 5-7 pigments in their formula and that will result in a more reflective color. This will give you a different look in each room you use it in. Regular paints use only 3 pigments and fill in with black or gray. Can’t wait to try it. If you need help choosing the perfect color for your home, contact me today!
As we wade through the holiday season our thoughts start to drift to the New Year and what changes it will bring. Being a “colorista” I am fascinated with how color trends change each year influenced by our economy and general outlook on life. Benjamin Moore, my favorite paint company has predicted Vintage Wine (2116-20) as their 2011 color of the year according to their website. This rich hue with a deep brown base and a hint of smoky violet is a warm, bold choice for your home. As an undertone in many of the latest wood finishes, leathers, and other textiles, vintage wine, and its lighter variations, will make a great paint color pick for many applications over the coming years. From deep smoky wine to wildly pumped up fuchsia, purple promises to be a predominant color in home decor in 2011.
