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.
