Looking for New Color Ideas?

If you are looking for some new color ideas for your decorating, Sherwin Williams introduced four new color palettes at October’s High Point, N.C. home furnishings market. The company’s Colormix® Forecast seminar is always well attended by interior designers.

We all know color is more than just color. Sherwin Williams reminds us that: “There is so much more to color that what meets the eye. It’s a part of our identity. It moves us. It has the power to change the very essence of everything it touches. Color can set a mood, create a conversation, soothe and ground us.”

The first palette introduced is called Method—described as conveying “nature’s processes, the gentle acts of becoming, showing themselves in a collection of organic neutrals and tonal luxury.” If you like the natural order of things, with a touch of art deco, this collection of colors is for you.

Method’s nine colors are: Accessible Beige, Evergreen Fog, Urbane Bronze, Uber Umber, Woven Wicker, Shoji White, Chartreuse, Bakelite Gold, and Beige.


Why not, as Sherwin Willams puts it, create “a masterpiece of your own making,” with some of the colors in Opus. The Opus palette “of dusky deep tones and unexpected accents was created to be a new kind of classical, to set drama and emotion to art of good style, and to never, ever fade into the background.”

Influenced by modern materialism, glam industrial, theater and moody eclectic, the colors are: Cocoa Whip, Garret Gray, Iron Ore, Aleutian, Coral Clay, Naval, Samover Silver, Red Bay, and Blackberry.


For those looking for a bit of whimsy, consider the Dreamland palette. It will “set yourself adrift in a fantasy realm of pearlescent tones, new-growth greens, and lavish pinks that will create a space where fresh ideas flourish.”

The Dreamland colors consist of High Reflective White, Natural Linen, Rose Tan, Rosemary, Felted Wool. Cucuzza Verde, Lite Lavender, Rosé, and Dynamo.


“Honoring the timelessness of sleek and functional midcentury modern design, the Ephemera palette is a play on primary color. Each shade was carefully chosen to evoke the fond remembrance of what once was and the unwavering optimism of what could someday be.”

The colors of Ephemera are Alabaster, Pink Shadow, Sierra Redwood, Peace Yellow, Inky Blue, Cascades, Moody Blue, Basque Green, and Rejuvenate. 

In light of the new year Sherwin Williams also announced their color of the year – Evergreen Fog

Many other brands are going light and natural too, as both Benjamin Moore and Pittsburgh Paint have also gone with a soft and airy green as their 2022 choice. Whereas Pantone has gone bold and daring with their bright selection of Very Peri, a vibrant periwinkle.
