Color of the Year - Vintage Wine

Benjamin Moore's color designers are forecasting "vintage wine"(2116-20) as Envision Color 2011's Color of the Year.

"First seen on the fashion runways of New York, Paris, and Milan, this rich hue with a deep brown base and a hint of smoky violet is just as magnificent in the home.

Vintage wine is an anchoring, rich hue that combines the comfort of a brown with the luxury of a smoky violet.

As an undertone in many of the latest wood finishes, leathers, and other textiles, vintage wine, and its lighter variations, will make a great paint color pick for many applications over the coming years."

rouge note: while I’m not crazy about the other color it’s mixed with here, I can see this beautiful color with smoky greys and furniture and accessories that have a touch of vintage to them. Warm, inviting, and luxurious!

  1. I love the wine and lime together! I used to have a room painted that exact color. Now I miss it!
