Summer Color Inspiration

Sherwin–Williams Paint Palette

This season we're crushing on everything green. From soft, grayed
Waterscape to Aquastone, a right–on–trend minty aqua, green
instantly connects to the richness of nature. Use hits of this hue to
wake up neutrals, create a lush backdrop for wood, or merge indoors
and out.

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.
