After attending the Sherwin Williams 2015 Color Forecast recently I was excited to share with you some new color trends. When I spoke to a color specialist of the company I posed the question about the trending gray palette. It appears the gray will be around for the next 5-7 years! While I have embraced the gray (in my Fond du Lac, WI home) and in fact painted my great room, dining room and kitchen in “Shades of Gray” I thought you might find the following new trends to inspire your next color choice for your homes or work space.
Earth & Sky
Look to the earth and find colors like Sticks & Stones SW7503 a brown gray currently adoring my great room walls. From the sky Aqua-Sphere SW7613 for a soft blue cloudy look.
Sherwin Williams looked to Inspiration from under sea missions, space travel and atmospheric events such as the blood moons and aurora borealis to select the following colors as part of the 2015 color trends: Antiquity 6402, Crystal Clear 6756 and Cloak Gray 6278 as a few examples representing the Supernatural trend.
Many of us are tired of browns and grays and want our wall color to reflect happy times. Inspired by tropical vacations and a new twist on vintage florals the following recommendations for this look are: Paradise SW6720, Wood Violet SW6557 and Coral Reef SW6606.
While we have seen a trend in clothing and décor of the Bohemian style the same look is now trending in color for the walls. We look to Latin American countries and the 2016 Summer Olympics to find this color palette. Marquis Orange SW6650, Tanager SW6601 and Decisive Yellow SW6902 are a few samples of this trending look.
