Plum Raisin by Benjamin Moore

“My go-to jewel tone is Plum Raisin, because it has a deep ruby saturation that works in both warm and cool environments. We used it here in the main bedroom of this luxury San Francisco condo, and I love how it adds warmth to the room and pops against the neutral furniture.”
