Benjamin Moore Aura Caponata - anyone tried this colour?

12 years ago

After sampling what seems like a trillion purple paints - including some of the new Martha Stewart ones at Home Depot (all a bit too grey), Shantung from Devine (pretty but too magenta-ish) and four or five of the Aura colours, Caponata is the current fave. It is a rich, purple-brown colour, almost chocolatey. Has anybody out there used this colour? It is pretty dark and saturated but we are thinking of it for an accent wall in a bedroom and maybe using BM Silver Fox or Abalone on the other walls. If anyone has used it do you think it would pair better with a grey (Silver Fox/Abalone) or with more of a tan/sand colour. One further thought is that Farrow and Ball have put out some very pretty colour combos for 2010 including one for Brinjal (similar to Caponata?) which pairs it with an acid yellow/green colour so maybe this is also an option ........ aargh .....
