October 18th, 2016 | Paint

Remember last February when I attended the PPG Global Color Trends workshop in New York? It was then the 2017 Color of the Year was decided. It was such an amazing process to be a part of (read all about it here). In September Voice of Color announced Violet Verbena would be their ‘it’ color for 2017.

Violet Verbena is a gray-purple hue that idealizes the popular bohemian, “gypset” lifestyle. This nuanced update on a classic shade adds depth, luxury and pampering to every space, making it the perfect backdrop for consumers looking to blend the masculine, the feminine, the mystic and the modern.

Violet Verbena adapts to surrounding environments and complements a variety of design aesthetics, from playful rooms to tranquil spaces. Violet Verbena is a moody purple with a chameleon-like presence.

It pairs so well with soft peachy pinks, and creamy whites.  Where would you use this soft violet with gray undertones?
