Color of the Month: Wood Violet

Get ready to revamp your living spaces with a refreshing touch of color! This month, the paint can is popping open to reveal Wood Violet by Benjamin Moore, a shade that manages to be both energetic and calming simultaneously. We think the sophisticated blend of lavender and rich grape comes together to create a tone that is as versatile as it is beautiful.

Whether you're thinking of a full-room makeover or simply looking for a fresh take on an accent wall, cabinetry, built-ins, or furniture, Wood Violet brings a fresh perspective.

The Cabinet Chic shares spectacular style ideas to transform your ‘home sweet home’ into a vibrant and inviting space.

Wood Violet: Color Profile

Color is often measured and described using various parameters including Light Reflective Value (LRV), hue, and tone. Let's talk about how these aspects shape this charismatic shade.


LRV is a measure of the percentage of light a paint color reflects and understanding it can help you determine how a certain color will affect the brightness and spaciousness of your space.

Wood Violet's Light
Reflective Value (LRV) is 33.22

In this case, Wood Violet's modest LRV indicates its mid-range reflectivity, meaning it will neither dim your room excessively nor make it overly vibrant. It's beautifully balanced to ensure your room has just the right amount of pop.  


Hue describes the main dominant color family it belongs to. Wood Violet’s hue is somewhere between blue and violet, giving it an intriguing cool undertone. This means it can beautifully complement neutral and warm shades offering a pleasing contrast and appeal.


Tone, on the other hand, refers to the darkness or lightness of a color. Wood Violet has a medium tone, which implies it possesses a perfect balance—it's neither too light nor too dark.
