Sherwin-Williams Announces 2021 ColorMix Forecast

Sherwin-Williams Announces 2021 ColorMix ForecastAs we approach fourth quarter, the S&A Homes team is already looking ahead to the home trends forecasted for the upcoming year. Recently, Sherwin-Williams revealed its 2021 ColorMix Forecast showcasing a brand-new collection of over 40 unique paint colors.

With the overarching theme being “Rhythm of Color,” this collection of colors is separated into four distinct palettes each offering a beautiful and meaningful combination of shades.

In 2020, the Sherwin-Williams ColorMix Forecast focused on colors that would ground us for the new decade. This next year, that theme is enhanced with a palette that explores the past, present and future with a rhythm of colors that allow us to slow down, embrace and explore the world we live in.

While the 2021 palettes still incorporate the same warm gray color schemes from 2020, the biggest update is the addition of contrasting pops of color. Combined together, these shades create a balance between “fast and slow,” “quiet and expressive” and “virtual and physical.”

Here’s a quick look into the upcoming 2021 ColorMix Forecast:
