PPG: Black Flame PPG1043-7
We love the deep rich color of Black Flame. Here we paired Black Flame with strong grayed-out tones which brings out the luxurious richness to the color. We also pulled together muted soft tones that look fresh and modern.
Black Flame, PPG's Color of the Year, looks amazing on exterior elements such as siding, doors, shutters, and window boxes. The deep vibrant color on your walls gives off a moody vibe, or can be the perfect accent color when used on your fireplace, tile, or chairs.
Hope these palettes have inspired you to push your creative boundaries and give the 2018 Colors of the Year a try in your own home! Where can you see yourself applying one of the color schemes?
