The Phinery’s Twist on Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year: October Mist

Benjamin Moore has officially announced it’s 2022 Color of the Year: October Mist. Here are our tips for putting a Phinery spin on it!

Add Contrast

October Mist is a subdued hue that acts as a neutral canvas for layering with richer tones. At The Phinery, contrast is integral to our designs. We love a light and airy look, but not without depth provided by deep charcoals or navy blues. In our mood board, you’ll see October Mist accompanied by Benjamin Moore’s Mysterious; a bold denim, that can read as black or navy, to add depth to the overall look.

Our Navy Linen Pillow Cover is very reminiscent of Mysterious by Benjamin Moore and an item we use to add contrast to designs frequently:

Incorporate Metals

Adding brass, polished nickel or iron is a great way to bring this color to life. This can be accomplished through light fixtures, cabinet hardware or even accessories. Here are a couple of our favorite brass items available at The Phinery:

Pair with Patterns

Adding interest with pattern is a great way to make this color feel more youthful and fun. Pairing a soft neutral with a whimsical pattern is a great juxtaposition and a trick we use all the time to incorporate thoughtful detail. Wallpaper is a great way to accomplish this, but don’t underestimate the power of a bold accessory. Some of our Phinery favorites are highlighted below!
