Design Trends: 2017 Color of the Year

Sherwin Williams has recently announced their color of the year for 2017! The color is called “Poised Taupe” and it has a serene balance between warm and cool, while also being not too dark or too light. Sue Wadden, the director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams, commented on the Today Show: “It’s like gray and brown had a baby.”

The company explains that their chosen color reflects a timeliness classic which resonates with the color preferences of the modern era.  Reflecting on the recent demand for neutral colors,  the company mentions that “it signals a new direction in society’s ever-growing thirst for beautiful neutrals that bring warm and cool tones together to create one irresistibly versatile color.”

Poised Taupe can work perfectly with wooden floors and structures with white trimmings to give off traditional and inviting vibrations. Below are some examples of how Poised Taupe would look in various rooms inside your home!
