Sherwin-Williams: Colormix Forecast 2019 Palettes

Some colors recall the past and some take you to places you have never been before. Color is such a beautiful thing because it can completely transform a place and a person. Calming color palettes are a big trend right now.  Recently, I’ve observed decor brands selecting more “earthy” tones and I believe it is an attempt to mentally soothe their customers. In this stressful intense society we live in it is very much appreciated. Here is a introduction to the six palettes of 2019 for Sherwin Williams.
