Decorating with Vintage Wine-the color of the year
The color brown, along with its’ different variations, is once again being brought to the attention of the J. Douglas Community. In all areas of fashion today, whether it is in clothes, accessories, apparel items, paints, or furniture, the color Vintage Wine is making a comeback.
Benjamin Moore's color designers are even expecting the color Vintage Wine to be the Color of the Year for 2011.
Starting out on the fashion runways of New York, Paris and Milan, this dulcet hue with a hint of smoky violet and a deep brown base is just as striking in the home. This prevailing Vintage Wine color, being a deeper hue of brown, not only gives one the feeling of luxury and warmth, but also makes any room that has this color in its interior design have a cosmopolitan feel to it, because it does have the uncanny ability to make any room seem exceptionally refined. This color would go well in any room, like for the bedroom designs or living room designs, and could also work well if you just simply took the color and painted it on your walls, or even made it an accent wall of sorts.
What makes the Vintage Wine color so great is that not only is it a shade of brown, but it then has its own variations of shades as well. There is Mirage White, Touch of Gray, African Violet, Hazy Lilac, Cabernet and Night Shade so no matter what you want your room to look like; this color can show up in many different forms, and even make your room stand out even more.
