Benjamin Moore’s 2017 Colour Trends of the Year

2289 Views 0 Comment

Benjamin Moore has finally announced the Colour Trends for 2017 and it is quite a change from last year, where the colour of the year was Simply White!

Although the deep tones of ‘Shadow’ is a departure from last year’s ‘Simply White’, the richness will pair beautifully with the neutrals in your home.


The 2017 palette ranges from pales to deeps and a selection of mid tones that can be used alone or in combination to complement many architectural and design styles. 

The team of colour experts from Benjamin Moore took their inspiration from a visit to Thorvaldsens museum in Denmark, where they found colour flowed from one room to the next.

Check out the rooms that inspired them!

The Colour of the Year is Shadow 2117-30. The designers at Benjamin Moore said “The relationship between color and light became the foundation, and it made sense to select a color from the smoky, deep violets to be our Color of the Year for 2017”.




We will be discussing all of the 23 colours that make up the Colour Trends for 2017 in our blog over the coming months, and if you’re are lucky enough to live near one of our stores, you can come and learn in person.  We will be holding a 2017 Colour Trends seminar at the following locations and times.  We hope you can join us!
