With the official launch of Sherwin-Williams National Painting Week, the team at Kerrie Kelly Design Lab found it only fitting to celebrate a few of the spaces that we have designed using the perfect palette colors as selected for our KKDL “Black Book of Top Interior Paints.” Check out our top twelve Sherwin-Williams tried and true hues. Photo images can be seen on our portfolio, but for this special occasion, we created water color versions of the spaces to add a special twist for National Painting Week.
PURE WHITE (SW 7005): Ceiling, floor, walls or trim, Pure White is a paint staple. An all-white room is a blank canvas just waiting for you to make it your own. Style it old or new, modern or cottage—Pure White is simplicity and minimalism, or even opulent in high gloss.
ESSENTIAL GRAY (SW 6002): A go-to hue for those who seek a departure from white or beige, but want their home to be light and neutral, Essential Gray has a touch of warmth and sophistication.
MINK (SW 6004): Medium to dark gray in tone, Mink has the perfect bit of brown, providing warmth and richness. A neutral that will work with a variety of colors, it also pairs beautifully with other shades of warm gray as well as white.
SNOWBOUND (SW 7004): White cabinetry in the kitchen doesn’t have to appear cold. Look for a white that has a slight ivory undertone, like Snowbound. When paired with wood flooring, stainless steel and marble tiles, it is interesting and inviting.
LIVABLE GREEN (SW 6176): Uplifting in coloration, this clean yet comforting hue creates an uncomplicated backdrop for a variety of interiors.
FABULOUS GRAPE (SW 6293): Glamorous or grounding, this luscious, vibrant hue can bring richness to rooms from old-world traditional to minimalist modern.
RED BAY (SW 6321): Energetic, lively and the color of good luck, red can excite and enliven a home’s interior or accent it’s exterior. Whether it’s traditional red brick, a more earthen tone—like Red Bay—red makes walls jump out and announce their presence while providing us with stimulation.
ATMOSPHERIC (SW 6505): Leaning towards white walls but love blue, try Atmospheric. This zen-like color will not overwhelm your space and it will make your white trim and furnishings look even more brilliant.
ROBUST ORANGE (SW 6628): Eye-popping and vibrant, Robust Orange is not for the timid. It works as the perfect accent when layered upon soothing neutrals that support rather than compete with the bold hue.
MORNING SUN (SW 6672): Wrapped in tones of buttercream, Morning Sun has a substance, while remaining light enough to act as a neutral. Mellow and stable, it provides a calm environment, especially for a foyer space.
ACCESSIBLE BEIGE (SW 7036): Accessible Beige is the quintessential warm neutral. Anything but boring, this classic tone can single-handedly carry a room or be accented by punchier hues.
WORLDY GRAY (SW 7043): Go for elegance and sophistication without going overboard on coolness by using Worldly Gray on its own or paired with bold tones. With gray undertones, it goes with everything, and its light and airy tone does not close in a space nor does it ever take the attention away from other furnishings.
