Artful Palette

Dark walls benefit from a pop of colour — or two!

A rich wall colour, such as Rockies Brown (2107-30) by Benjamin Moore, creates the perfect bold backdrop for a shocking pink sofa and acid-green side table in this living room. A small-scale original painting looks right at home when hung near a personality-filled tabletop vignette.
