NEUTRALS BRING CLASSIC AND MODERN TOGETHER
Sherwin-Williams director of color marketing, Sue Wadden, puts the focus on neutrals. "There's a very new direction in society's ever-growing thirst for beautiful neutrals that bring warm and cool tones together," Wadden explains. With their knack for complimenting colorful paintings, accessories and furnishings, neutrals bring out the best in any design style.
Poised Taupe SW 6039, the 2017 Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year, is a perfect example of a classic, warm neutral color with a modern twist. Sherwin-Williams color expert Sue Wadden praises its versatility: "Poised Taupe celebrates everything people love about cool gray as a neutral, and also brings in the warmth of brown, taking the color to an entirely new level," she says. "Not cool or warm, nor gray or brown, Poised Taupe is a weathered, woodsy neutral that brings the sense of coziness and harmony people are seeking."
