Incorporate the Sherwin Williams Color of The Month Year-Round

Incorporate the Sherwin Williams Color of The Month Year-Round While it may be the end of the month, the Sherwin Williams July 2020 Color of the Month is here to stay! Touch of Sand (SW 9085) offers a warm and refreshing alternative to gray. The sandy beige shade has a beachy feel that is perfect for summer, but also a warm neutral look that is great year-round.

For some inspiration, here are a few ways to incorporate Touch of Sand into your new S&A home:

Interior and Exterior Walls
It’s no surprise that Touch of Sand is a popular wall color option. The modern beige color is easy on the eyes and pairs beautifully with a variety of shades, providing homeowners with plenty of creative control. Not only does this shade shine on the inside of the home, but it also offers great curb appeal when used on the home’s exterior.

Kitchen Cabinetry
If all-white cabinets seem a bit boring, but you are not ready for a bolder cabinet color, Touch of Sand may just be the perfect in-between. Warm yet relaxed, this paint shade creates a kitchen space that is soft, elegant and refined. If you are going for a modern-farmhouse kitchen feel, this is an especially great use of this shade.

Painting walls and cabinets can be a big commitment, and many opt to incorporate colors through furniture instead. The neutral shade of Touch of Sand is seen in many furniture pieces due to its versatility and ability to show less dirt. Add a sandy beige couch to the living room or a table to the kitchen for an elegantly chic look that pulls everything together.

In the summer months, the beachy Touch of Sand hue is fun and super easy to incorporate. However, it is just as fun and easy to do so with year-round décor as well! Look out for throw pillows and rugs with sandy beige details along with other statement pieces such as curtains, baskets, wall art and throw blankets. Beige tones look especially great with grays, blacks and blues, so be on the lookout for those complementary colors when considering décor.
