Home Decor Trends: Poised Taupe Selected Sherwin Williams 2017 Color of the Year

Poised Taupe. “The Taupe-ier Taupe…”

Soooo… HER | Staging & Interiors vendor, @SherwinWilliams has released their new color of the year for 2017 – SW6039 Poised Taupe. Take a look at the video below.

While I can’t say I’m super excited about “taupe,” I am always glad to see a neutral color make the “what’s hot” list. It satisfies our clients who don’t like to take as much risk in their home interior design plans, and it lets us get super creative with accent colors.

Why’d They Choose THAT?

Sherwin Williams said, “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/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, taupe-ier expressions of neutral.”

I’m SO over grey walls… I’m actually looking forward to the change and I like a “taupe-ier” taupe. It’s got a bit of a lavender hue to it as well and that makes me really happy. (SMILE)

OK, while we’re on board with trying this oldie-but-goodie comeback color, we’re certainly not suggesting you run out and paint most of your house in it…

We can help you make this paint POP!

For instance, I’m sure Poised Taupe is going to go well in our fall designs when paired with black, deep aubergine, burnt orange and/or navy blue.

 We’re also looking forward to incorporating with crisp whites and metallics in the warmer weather for a little more of a glam effect.

So, Whatcha’ Thinkin’?

We’re interested to hear YOUR thoughts on the new color.

Here’s a great color palette for using the new color.
