Blog: Favorite Color of the Week- Galaxy

Galaxy is a lovely, saturated plum color from Benjamin Moore. I love it because it works so well with some many different colors: grays, blues, greens, yellow, beige. I live in a pale gray home and I have it on my front steps and fence. Here are some examples from the web on how to use Galaxy around your home:

front door

It’s a great color for a front door because it looks so rich and inviting. It’s paired here with beige siding and white trim.

kitchenHere it’s used on cabinets to anchor and give warmth to the stark white countertops and backsplash. It works so well with the wall color because the green picks up on the red undertone in Galaxy.

dining room

Yellow and purples are a classic combination. Here it makes this small dining room seem so majestic.

You can also pair it with similar plum hues for a sophisticated, monochromatic look.

Yay purple!
