We find their galleries filled with great interior design ideas and thought to chronicle the past few years of room images and tips to provide inspiration for your next home improvement painting project.

2017

Sherwin Williams had a variety of colors listed for their 2017 Color Forecast, but ultimately chose Poised Taupe SW 6039 to represent their sole pick for 2017 Color of the Year.

It diffuses the stresses of the world outside our doors — so much so that we feel restored and in balance when we walk across our threshold.

The taupe family of colors may not win you any lateral thinking applauses, but when combined with one of the many shades of whites, you’ll be sure to succeed in creating a cozy and mature setting that works well in any home style.

2016

Alabaster (SW 7008) is the top pick for this year, and provides a no-nonsense subtle approach, with a focus on calmness. In many ways, this can be very beneficial in providing years of neutral happiness, yet with some tips from Sherwin-Williams, you can still make a room vibrate with the right harmony.

Pair this color with light blushes or grays and bridge transitional and traditional styles.

You can create a yin and yang harmony with contrasting dark colors, such as Urbane Bronze (SW 7048) or Gray Area (SW 7052) in a spa-like bathroom.

2015

A new year and another great color pick for Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year. The phrase “Upbeat and optimistic, the perfect mélange of pink, orange and red that can be used to liven up any space.”, is used to describe Coral Reef (SW 6606)

Sherwin-Williams suggests, “pairing Coral Reef with Cotton White ( SW 7104) ,Black Fox (SW 7020) or other floral hues and lush greens.”

You can relax this bold color slightly by pairing it with warm neutrals such as Sedate Gray (SW 6169) or buttery yellows like Hubbard Squash (SW 0044).

Driftwood, medium wood tones and metal finishes also complement its flower-garden hue, or for vintage quality that’s hard to beat, Coral Reef and aged matte brass make a perfect pair.

2014

Exclusive Plum 6263 was the 2014 COTY, providing a flexible color that can also work well in a masculine environment when following the guidelines of pairing “with accents of copper and well-worn leather”. The cool blue hue with a detection of gray can create a rich and inviting feeling.

When accompanied with light creams, beige, and whites, a room feels welcoming, yet very airy and light.

Many times a color can be appealing, but not as the primary. Exclusive Plum works nicely as an accent color to liven the environment. Use to draw attention to a specific area.
