Sherwin Williams ColorMix 2017!

Sherwin Williams ColorMix 2017!

Color selection is always an interesting topic. Some people are bold color lovers and it is evident in their clothes and homes! Others prefer a more subdued palette of neutrals. Color invokes feelings and expresses itself in many ways. One influence that is more subtle is that of the times we live in including economics, world cultures, technologies and the state of the environment.  

We attended the Sherwin Williams ColorMix 2017 event and found out what they predict to be the up and coming color palettes and a fascinating look into why these colors were chosen! 

Fist up was Noir, these deep dramatic hues are lush and mysterious!  This palette includes the color of the year, Poised Taupe which signifies a shift towards warmer neutrals. 

 "It’s among our most precious commodities: night. We’re craving a refuge from urban streetlights and glowing screens, space to turn our gaze inward and recharge the spirit. Mindful melancholy is fueling a new romanticism marked by medieval patterns, revived customs and bittersweet beauty. The Dutch masters knew the secret: dark hues set a dramatic stage for sensuous luster. This palette is rich with vineripe fruits, Nordic blues, moody neutrals and golden yellows." - Sherwin Williams

Next up is Holistic which focuses on experiences, helping others and green design!

"Sustainable design and radical transparency are the new standards. As our daily transactions move further into the cloud, acquiring experiences is becoming preferable to buying more things. "Doing good" is the new looking good, and it’s taking the form of "voluntourism," healing retreats and eco-travel. We’re in pursuit of an elusive ideal: a fair luxury. The roads of this journey are lined with arctic neutrals, blush rose and wild browns." - Sherwin Williams

Intrepid is about self-expression and the high energy of our times!

"The virtual and the real are blurring in the form of seamless commerce and "office anywhere" collaboration. Impatient for social and political change, we’re reinventing ourselves first. Identity has never been more fluid. "You do you" is the mantra of a generation primed for self-expression, cheered on by their own #squad and tossing aside old categories. There’s a feisty energy to our present moment, arriving in fiery tones and vibrant, kimono colors." - Sherwin Williams

As the world gets smaller and boundries start to blur we are focusing on custom pieces built to last. Unbounded is a palette of world consciousness!

"Global immigration is redefining borderlands, national identity and our sense of coexistence. We’re all citizens of the world now. Brands are becoming more purpose-driven, communities more connected. Design is adapting to more diverse populations. Overconsumption is, well, over. We’re more likely to invest in the best we can afford — crafted and customized — and then keep it forever. Global consciousness is a mural painted in earthy mustards, ocean blues, corals and mud." - Sherwin Williams

Although color is a deeply personal choice, we can see how outside influences effect our choices!
