Vintage Wine: Benjamin Moore Paint Color of 2011

This color looks and sounds yummy. The purplish tint is bold enough to be statement color for any room. Yet, there is enough brown in this shade to still work as a neutral. I guess you could call it a bold neutral. This combo is the holy grail of paint colors.

Paint can be overwhelming. There are thousands of colors to choose from and the paint chips at the hardware store are dizzying — not to mention the sample color books. If you need help deciding on a paint color, go to paint brand websites, like Benjamin Moore or Behr, and research new shades and color groupings. Many sites offer virtual paint centers, so you can see what colors will look like in different rooms. Beware, this can be very addicting.
