For today’s Color Spotlight, I was on the hunt for a purple. I wanted something pretty, yet different than I’d normally go for. I found Benjamin Moore’s Ultra Violet 1372, a “quintessential shade of purple with regal, luxurious sentiments”.
It’s very…purple…with a definite reddish undertone (hence, the name).
It’s a great choice for all the purple lovers out there! Ultra Violet would make a great accent wall anywhere you want to add a bold statement, or possibly an all-over color in a well-lit room.
Coordinating colors include:
- Cotton Balls
- Summer Harvest
- Simply White
- Cotton Tail
It has an LRV of 12.78, meaning it will reflect very, VERY little light.
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:
- You can easily move them around from room to room.
- They cost MUCH less than traditional sample pots, brushes/rollers, and foam boards.
- 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.
