Using Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year in Your Home

Tickle yourself pink with Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year – First Light 2102-70! Benjamin Moore describes this soft, rosy hue as “the backdrop of a new decade.” When First Light is paired with its complementary colors, it provides a fresh palette for the home. You’re able to brighten your space and add color in a modern way.

Discover five of the best ways to use First Light in your home decor:

In living rooms, dens, and basements, First Light is refreshing. Pair walls painted in First Light with furniture made from natural elements like wood or bamboo. You should also place plants or fresh flowers around the space. Using natural details in combination with the color livens up the room.

In the kitchen, use First Light on the walls to modernize the space. Gold hardware and accents can add a touch of luxury to the kitchen, while black hardware can create a striking contrast. If you don’t want to cover the walls in the rosy hue, consider incorporating it into your backsplash or kitchenware like plates and glasses.

In guest and master bedrooms, First Light is chic and subtle. If you’re going for a romantic, feminine look, pair it with white furniture and accents. If you want to create a juxtaposition between feminine and masculine, paint the walls in a darker shade, like Cushing Green, and incorporate First Light through your bedding or area rug.

In a powder room, First Light is the perfect accent wall. Paint the wall behind your vanity in the soft hue for a subtle pop of color. Because First Light is so versatile, you can use bathroom accessories in a variety of textures and finishes.

In home offices, First Light can stimulate productivity in a setting that is quiet and calm. Even if your walls are painted a cool neutral color, like Crystalline, you can use First Light in your furniture and décor. Think accent chair, curtains, artwork, and area rugs.

Don’t be afraid to think pink when it comes to your color palette and home décor. When used correctly, pink can be timeless and original.
