Benjamin Moore 2011 Colors & Window Treatments, Part II

And now a continuation of Ben Moore’s vision for 2011.

ESCAPE

An escape from reality is at play here, with frosted pearl and satin finishes. It’s a retro feeling of elegance and fairy tales. Think pink! We envision soft colors for shades and blinds (imagine motorized shades closing in synch and creating a dreamy soft focus).

White shutter panels with creamy curtains create a bedroom escape.

TRIBE

This trend borrows from our communities and tribes, so to speak. Tribal accents, spicy browns and bronze metallics with orange and berry colors give this a textured and rich feeling. Our Shoji panels could be interesting here, since they not only come in neutral colors, but can also be personalized with original designs.
