Lunar Gray

Adaptable master of reflected light, like her namesake the moon, Lunar Gray is as natural as stone, architectural as concrete and as adaptable as her nearest companion color. This gray’s strong presence somehow soothes the senses and always keeps her cool with an air of subtle mystery.

As industrial style continues to flourish and organics still dominate both textural and color applications, gray emerges as a companion to both warm and cool palettes, as only this color changeling can.

Greenery

Pantone sparks spring with color “greenery” for 2017. This shade is clean, bold and full of the promise of reawakening and reinvention. Reminiscent of fresh grass, it gets a sophisticated urban lift when partnered with lunar gray.

Poised Taupe

Sherwin Williams touches taupe with a cast of dusty purple in this 2017 mink-meets-violet combination of subtle elegance. Easy to use and easier to love, this runway-worthy shading leaves us wanting more. Pair “poised taupe” with gray and the color lines begin to blur, with beautiful results.

Shadow

Benjamin Moore takes a risk with the deepest color of the year for 2017. Breathtaking and formal, it makes a grand entrance, as navy casts gather warmth in velvety reds and rich vineyard hues. Pairing “shadow” with raw natural elements and gray tends to lessen its reserve.
