Every year one of the highlights of our design work is to see what Sherwin Williams comes up with for their annual ColorMix report. It has become a tradition of ours to attend the ColorMix presentation at Silverado Design Center in Sacramento. This year it will be held on November 14th at 5pm. We hope to see you there—here is a taste of what to expect and if you couldn’t attend the event, part of what you may have missed!

 

 

“Color in Balance” guides the Sherwin Williams ColorMix 2020 curation of 45-trend colors, spun into five welcoming and intuitive palettes that bring joy, serenity and focus to the mind, body and spirit. Let us know what your favorite palettes are in the comments below!


Mantra

East meets West in this palette, and both styles have entwined in the most appealing way. Now Nordic simplicity happily engages with the order and elegance of Japanese aesthetics to create a look that is the best of both worlds. With softly muted neutrals that glide from warm to cool, it embraces all that is simple yet utterly essential.

 

Heart

A confluence of genres and emotions permeates this palette. It’s a unique fusion of iconic modern design mixed with an intergenerational BoHo vibe. The result is a collection of colors that harmonize amazingly well. From silky earth tones to clove and soft coral, these nine colors are a meditation on comfort, connection and the pleasures found in the everyday.

 

 

Alive

Be present. Be positive. And relish the moments of this amazing life. Enjoy it in an authentic space touched by a palette whose colors keep good company. Here, nurturing neutrals are artfully arranged with rich blues and a deep, ripe olive, evoking a satisfying and rejuvenating sense of community and living well.

 

 

Play

Tag. You’re it. These buoyant colors extend an invitation to jump into the game and have fun. Energetic and clever, this palette packs a lot of charm. Starting with a fresh, pure white, it’s peppered with surprising pops of brightness. Its mission is to add humor and warmth to all it touches — and to help us recall that deep down, we’re still kids who love to play.

 

 

Haven

Like being welcomed home with open arms, this palette beckons to those seeking an oasis. Inspired by Earth’s seasonal cycles, it features richly subtle shades of sea, sand, forest and sky. An innate reminder that sometimes real beauty lies in the spaces outside the lines and calm comes from knowing perfect isn’t the only way to be.
