Introducing, today’s Color of the Day: Vintage Wine! More specifically, Benjamin Moore 2116-20.

Would you like to ‘Get This Look‘?  Add a touch of ‘Vintage Wine’ to your space with this Jefferson Leather Chair from Thrive Furniture.

Are you looking for ideas on how to use ‘Vintage Wine’ in a project? I’m putting together a collection of designs to show you. These are a few of my favorites:

This is such a classy color when used in a living room. I like that it gives character to the wall but is neutral enough not to compete with all the colorful accents in the design…

This one’s for the wine lover’s out there. ‘Vintage Wine’ stained wood is the perfect choice for your next wine cellar renovation. Look closely at the tabletop. It’s made with reclaimed wine barrel wood. How cool is that?

If you prefer a lighter tone to your wood, you could pair it with a ‘Vintage Wine’ ceiling. It really adds to the whole wine cellar vibe, don’t you think?

Today’s color was selected from the Benjamin Moore Color Preview Palette.

Always get samples! Here’s why: The ‘Color of the Day’ posts are intended to provide design inspiration. I select projects and products for each ‘Color of the Day’ post based on the color my eye sees in the photographs. It can be extremely difficult to render color with 100% accuracy when taking photographs, especially of interior spaces. The same color can also appear  entirely different in different lighting conditions. For these reasons, the actual color of the projects or products  may not be an actual match to the ‘Color of the Day’. Always review actual samples from the product manufacturer before making final purchases.
