Best Places to Use Vintage Vogue

No room is off limits when it comes to this color. But it looks especially nice on kitchen cabinets, built-ins, and living rooms.

It could appear more black in rooms that don’t get much natural light. So if you use it in a room that faces north or east, be sure to have sufficient lighting. And always test the color in the actual room that it will be used. Get samples here: Peel and Stick Vintage Vogue Sample, 8 oz Sample Paint Pot Benjamin Moore Vintage Vogue
