I am very excited that Benjamin Moore has selected Shadow as its colour of the year for 2017. To me, it speaks of admiring a piece of lavender through a sheer curtain at dusk, looking at the world through amethyst coloured glasses, and watching a raven flap its smoky black wings against the pink sky of twilight. I really do feel that 2017 will be a year of light, and what better way to remind ourselves that there is only light because of darkness than through the colour of Shadow.
“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.”
