Summer Color Inspiration

Sherwin-Williams Paint Palette

Refresh your home for spring with shades of green, from a soft, grayed-mint Quietude to deep, rich Hunt Club for a little more drama. Hues of blue also blend well with our natural palette, from the bedroom-perfect Sleepy Blue to the darker, sea-inspired Marea Baja. For neutrals, we're gravitating to beiges with just a hint of pink, like Unfussy Beige and Alpaca, or the richer Less Brown.

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.
