“It’s a great mix of beige and bold colorfinding that perfect mix is a great way to make a color choice that will stand the test of time,” Sue M Wadden, Director of Color Marketing at Sherwin Williams commented. When asked her thoughts on putting together a lasting color palette and she said, “Colors thoughtfully focused on muted pastels… as well as natural neutrals will continue to be important. Something new popping up is nostalgia colors. Colors from the 60s and 70s that provide reassurance and comfort to the individual, we will continue to see these colors in 2022 and beyond.”

We put together some of our favorite combinations that provoke similar feelings, we’re really excited about these colors. 


Explore Our Color Visualizers – Easy to find the right color, the first time.

We know one of the biggest fears with a commercial repaint is having buyers remorse on the color once it’s painted on your building. That’s why we encourage customers to use a Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer. It’s like trying on different looks for your building before anyone picks up a roller. 

We asked Amberlie O’Toole a graphic design and photo editing expert with Design Inspired to help us understand the importance of color renderings. She stated,

“Narrowing down choices can be overwhelming. With a rendering or color visualizer, you are able to see the color placement on particular surfaces alongside the surrounding elements. Landscaping, hardscapes, roof color, and other unpainted surfaces can change the appearance of adjacent paint colors. A rendering will more accurately represent how particular color choices will look as opposed to solely looking at a paint swatch. In addition, you may want certain areas to be a focal point. A visualization tool can also help with that decision process. It is a simple, definitive way to narrow down different color schemes and combinations and arrive at the look that most appeals to you.”
