Paint Colour of the Year – Benjamin Moore 2017

It’s all about the paint! For several years now, I have attended Benjamin Moore’s much-anticipated Colour of the Year launch event.  Over the years it has been held at some of the loveliest venues around the city.  This year’s event took place in the Conservatory at Casa Loma in Toronto and how beautiful it was.

There is always a slide show presentation showing beautiful images from around the world that led the Benjamin Moore team to their paint colour selection.  In stark contrast to last year’s selection of “Simply White”,  the Benjamin Moore 2017 Colour of the Year is “Shadow” – 2117-30.

“Allusive and enigmatic, Shadow is a master of ambiance.  It ebbs and flows with its surroundings and light brings it to life.  Rich, royal amethyst can fade into the soft lilac-grey of distant mountains or morph into lustrous coal.  Indulge your mysterious side.  Let Shadow set the mood.” – Ellen O’Neill, Creative Director, Benjamin Moore.
