WINTER COLOR INSPIRATION
Sherwin–Williams Paint Palette
This winter, we're deepening our palette into moody blues, emerald greens and soft grays to give rooms drama and make furniture + artwork pop. For a warmer neutral, we love the subtle richness of Restrained Gold. With saturated hues like these, it's important to add brighter accents with metallic finishes, mirrored surfaces and crisp touches of white.
Tips for choosing colors like a pro:
- Use different shades of the same color to create depth. Instead of standard white, try painting trim a deeper shade of the wall color, or use the same hue in a high–gloss finish.
- Try a satin finish on walls instead of the typical flat finish paint. It gives darker or richer colors more depth, looks more polished, and— bonus points—is easier to clean.
- In a small, dark room, don't assume you have to go with white or light colors. A darker hue can actually visually enlarge the space because it makes corners disappear and furnishings pop.
