Feeling dark and moody? Benjamin Moore chose Vintage Wine (the color on the ceiling below) as their 2011 color of the year. They describe vintage wine as a rich hue with a deep brown base and a hint of smoky violet. And they also chose balance as the theme for the year.
The international paint company Akzo Nobel chose appreciation as their theme and named Lemon Twist their color of the year. Now this is a light, happy color!
You can just barely read the quote on the lemon twist wall.
Purely Refined - elegant, tailored, understated.
Restless Nomad - sultry, exotic, primal.
Bold Intervention - experimental, artsy, expressive.
Gentle Medley - fresh, airy, innocent.
