PRESS RELEASE
A sophisticated, rich and royal amethyst, leading North American paint brand Benjamin Moore has revealed Shadow 2117-30 as its highly anticipated Colour of the Year 2017. Unveiled alongside a corresponding palette consisting of 22 deep, saturated hues, this allusive and enigmatic shade is a dramatic and contemporary colour that is brought to life through light, ebbing and flowing with its surroundings.

Taking cues from around the world, from architecture, fashion, textiles, home furnishings and the arts, the Benjamin Moore Colour Studio discovered an increased desire for a more rich and sumptuous palette than the neutral tones of more recent years. Intense, luminous and exuberant, Shadow is a master of ambiance, calling to mind a ‘past’, yet also making a contemporary, colour-confident statement.
Ranging from muted pales to saturated deeps, the inspirational 2017 Colour Trends palette illustrates the use of colour in ways that celebrate how shadow and light travel throughout a space during the course of a day. Lending significant consideration to the pairing of colours and relationships between colour families, the 2017 palette speaks to the newfound level of colour confidence in deeper hues among design professionals and consumers.
Underpinning all of the fantastic Benjamin Moore product lines is the proprietary Gennex® Waterborne colourant technology. All Benjamin Moore paints are custom mixed, giving customers access to an unrivalled palette of colours. Gennex® colourants fortify the paint to enhance colour durability for a long lasting and resilient finish.
