SHERWIN WILLIAMS COLOR OF THE YEAR 2016

I love sharing Sherwin Williams color of the year!  This year, 2016, is all about white – SW 7008 Alabaster.  There are endless possibilities with this color.  Sherwin Williams knows the right time to introduce this color.  People are crazy about white right now.

“Alabaster represents a straightforward and necessary shift to mindfulness. It provides an oasis of calmness, spirituality and ‘less is more’ visual relief. Alabaster is neither stark nor overly warm, but rather an understated and alluring white.”
Jackie Jordan, Sherwin Williams director of color marketing.

One thing that makes this color so great is its crisp and clean appearance.  It is also an easy color to decorate with because it matches everything, however, using it intentionally is important.  For example, if you love contrast then white is perfect to pull off that look but if you are a lover of neutrals then alabaster might be just the ticket to keep it from becoming mundane.

Talk about a timeless color that matches everything and every style.  If your goal to make a room look larger, than Alabaster is the color for you.  Soft and pleasant are the tranquil words to describe it!  SW7008 can be used anywhere.  Its great for trim, walls and ceiling.  And you can get away with using it all together.  It's perfect for a refreshing spa look, tasty kitchen design, elegant dining room, relaxing living room and so much more.  If you are challenged by color selection then worry no more because Alabaster is an easy pick.
