Spring Color Inspiration

Our Paint Palette with Sherwin-Williams

For Spring 2019, we've got a serious case of the blues. From blue-grays like Riverway and Debonair to the lighter, softer Copen Blue, these hues are soothing, sophisticated and anything but depressing. The moody, grayed tones also edge into greens with Rosemary and Rock Garden. Ready for a brighter spring refresh? Pantone named "Living Coral" the Color of the Year, so Sherwin-Williams' Ravishing Coral is right on trend. Looking for something a little softer? Try Pink Shadow, for just a hint of pink— an always-flattering favorite, whether you're a millennial or not.

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.
