Sherwin Williams Color Mix Forecast 2018
“Like blue meeting yellow to make green, every color is a collision of influences – every palette a fresh chance at community.”
Color us excited to talk about the 2018 Sherwin-Williams Color Mix Forecast. This year’s inspirational color palette is divided into three distinct, unique categories:
- Sincerity: Comprised of hushed natural tones, the Sincerity category considers the concepts of authenticity and complexity. The influences for the Sincerity category include “silence, Instagram, minimalism, “hygge,” and normcore.
- Connectivity: Every day we wake up and embark on a journey of choices, and of course technology is influencing those choices in new and surprising ways. Connectivity is inspired by high-tech, with influences as wide-ranging as youth culture, virtual reality, and environmentalism.
- Unity: Influenced by concepts of transculturalism, community, and indigenous patterns, the Unity collection of colors is inspired by what connects us, and how we continually redefine what that means.
