Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year 2015

Sherwin-Williams Coral Reef | KitchAnn StyleI was going to combine the Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year post with the previous post about AkzoNobel’s Color of the Year 2015 choice but I found so many great inspiration photos I decided I had to break it out.

Sherwin-Williams chose Coral Reef (SW 6606) as their Color of the Year 2015. It’s part of the Buoyant color palette I wrote about previously.

“Its unexpected versatility brings life to a range of design aesthetics, whether traditional, vintage, cottage or contemporary.” -Jackie Jordan, Sherwin-Williams director of color marketing.

Coral Reef is warmer than AkzoNobel’s Copper Orange and is a wonderful compliment to the Blues that have been popular these past few seasons.

Coral reef plays happily with white, black, lush greens and lilacs. For a more subdued palette, mix it with warm neutrals such as gray and soft browns.

Coral Reef is not the pumpkin color from the 50’s. It’s  a softer, more approachable color.

Since Coral Reef is such a flattering color, it’s well suited for use in bathrooms. Who doesn’t want to have a youthful glow?

Pair Coral Reef with matte gold or brass for a luxurious vintage feel.

Don’t limit the color to the interior. Consider brightening your home’s exterior by applying it to your front door, shutters, flower boxes or garden structures.
