2017 Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year: Poised Taupe

2017 color of the year

Sherwin-Williams doesn’t usually like to play color favorites, but in this case we can’t resist. The color we anticipate defining 2017 is Poised Taupe SW 6039. Here’s why: This timeless neutral is modern, classic and a beautiful balance of warm and cool.

The 2016 industry shows revealed a surprising transition from grey to taupe. Both contract and consumer color and products have been focused on grey as the key neutral — although grey is still important, we have seen a significant shift in materials and finish color to warmer expressions of neutral.
