The “It” Color for Home Decor in 2017

sw-6039_poised_taupe_dollop_01Sherwin-Williams recently announced the winner for Color of the Year in 2017 is “Poised Taupe”(SW 6039), which is somewhat of a cross-over between warm and cool or dark and light. Or, as Sue Wadden, the director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams, told the Today Show: “It’s like gray and brown had a baby.”

For a perfect pairing, Sherwin-Williams designers recommend combining Poised Taupe with pastels, brights, and jewel tones (such as a faded indigo hue for a French countryside look or combine it with a teal or sunny yellow for a more bold impact). Still can’t imagine what it would look like in your home? Check out these pictures courtesy of Sherwin Williams and checkout their Pinterest page for more ideas!
