Use Raspberry Blush in a dining room for a blushed update to the traditional deep red dining room, or try it on the living room walls and wainscoting.

According to Benjamin Moore, Raspberry Blush is the definition of charismatic color. This sentiment flows through the rest of their 2023 palette as we immerse ourselves in hues that make a statement.

Warm and engaging, Wenge is ideal for amping up saturation in rooms with predominantly neutral walls or bringing balance to a space with a lot of color.


Use it on exteriors for a rich update to the traditional taupe, create a focal point or in a kitchen to bring a velvety touch to the space.






Cinnamon

A rich brown touched by orange undertones, Cinnamon is an excellent bridge between neutrals and more saturated shades–if you find you’re looking for a bolder neutral, or a more neutral hue that still feels like a focal point, Cinnamon is the spice for you.

Entertain guests with Cinnamon in common areas like living rooms or invite them to stay awhile with a guest room in this rich hue.





Savannah Green
