Color Spotlight: Crushed Velvet by Benjamin Moore

Benjamin Moore’s Crushed Velvet 2076-10 is a “lush cranberry hue that brings to mind the luxurious nap of the deepest velvet” (according to their website).

In other words, it’s a super cozy, deep purple-pink. It reminds me of raspberries more so than cranberries.

You could use this color in a bedroom or anywhere you want to add a splash of luxury.

Coordinating colors include:

  • Lacey Pearl
  • Stone Harbor
  • Paper White
  • Adagio

It has a LRV of 8.98, which is getting close to being as light absorbent as it gets.

How Can I Get a Sample?

The best way to try out Sherwin Williams paint colors is to order a 12”x12” peel-and-stick sample from Samplize.

A few things I love about these true color samples:

  1. You can easily move them around from room to room.
  2. They cost MUCH less than traditional sample pots, brushes/rollers, and foam boards.
  3. They are more environmentally friendly.

Plus, they’re typically delivered in just 1-3 business days, so you don’t have to add one more errand to your list (and then go back again and again when you don’t like how they look in your space). 

What is a Color Spotlight?

Every day this month, I’m highlighting a different paint color for my readers — mainly colors I haven’t really talked about before on the blog — as a fun little project.

They’re super quick blurbs that you can read in less than five minutes (NOT long, drawn out color reviews).

This will not only expose you to a variety of fun hues you might not have considered, but it’ll also give me fresh ideas for future blog posts.

Happy decorating!
