If the gallery of interiors inspiration above is any indication, dark and moody is in for 2017. “After a five-year streak of softer pastel colors and a focus on white, we are now observing a shift in trend to more saturated colors,” says Helen Mullet from Benjamin Moore Paints & Exterior Stains of the color landscape for 2017. “We have seen a rise in the trend of deeper, darker shades on all the walls of a space, rather than previously being featured on just one wall to accent the room.” To master this home-décor trend, discover Mullet’s key color picks for 2017.

A Smoky Violet

“Shadow 2117-30, our 2017 color of the year, has a wonderful smoky, deep-violet hue. Depending on the light, it is a deep and rich plum color with a touch of violet and sometimes hints to black.”

A Rich Gray

“One of our favorite grays, the Wish AF-680 is a lovely addition to the deep, rich colors found in our 2017 palette, and works especially wonderfully with wood accents.”

A Deep Brown

“Grandfather Clock Brown, color 2096-30, is a robust shade that is delightfully rich and luxurious. It works well when teamed with chalk white on the trim.”

A Dark Burgundy

“A shade of dark burgundy, such as our 20175-10, is particularly lovely when used in an eggshell finish. It will help reflect the light within a space, showing a contrast of beautiful shades within the same room during the day and with varied types of lighting. This color will work well for a dining room for a warm and relaxed dining experience.”
