The Ultimate Accent Wall
Architectural details and the soft touch matte finish of CENTURY come together to create arresting accent walls for two Benjamin Moore-painted rooms.
Homeowners and interior designers alike recognize that painting is a quick and easy way to infuse any room with a fresh new look. That concept is pushed further with CENTURY, a luxurious paint that effortlessly breathes depth into every brushstroke.
Warming Up a Large Space
Recently, Benjamin Moore’s creative team chose CENTURY paint to enliven two separate accent walls in a newly renovated original cottage in Alabama. Not only would CENTURY highlight each wall’s striking architectural details, its upholstery-like finish would lend warmth to the large-sized rooms.
“The soft touch finish of CENTURY truly transforms the rooms into a more intimate, welcoming space,” says Felicity Keane, Benjamin Moore’s Creative Director.
The choice of paint sheen can also contribute to the mood of a space. “A room with a lot of light benefits from a matte finish,” Felicity adds, going on to cite how glare from each rooms’ windows was significantly reduced thanks to the CENTURY-painted wall.
The Power of Rich, Bold Color
“If you have a lot of light in a space, you have greater license to use darker colors,” says Color & Design Expert Nivara Xaykao. “Green is a great “gateway” into darker colors as it captures the energy of nature in whatever shade.” CENTURY VIRIDIAN O6 on a beveled accent wall provides a nice bridge between earthy wood fixtures and neutral, modern furnishings in the room.
In the dining area, soft black CENTURY OBSIDIAN Q5 makes for a sumptuous backdrop in the monochromatic space. An array of cool, charcoal furniture is warmed up by the mahogany wood floors, and the home accessories in the built-in shelving enjoy an elegant frame of deep OBSIDIAN Q5.
