2012 Color Forecast by Sherwin Williams

While doing our own study on colors recently at Sherwin Williams, we came across this 2012 Forecast.

Survey the landscape and discover core palettes inspired by Mother Earth.

  • Neutrals: a field of grain, a pile of pebbles, weathered wood, earthy clay and raw organic materials.
  • Reds: A brilliant flower, a glowing ember, the colors of fire and passion, and the earth’s molten core.
  • Blues: Clear water, faded American denim, rivers, lakes and seas, workwear, and crisp blue skies.
  • Greens: The depths of the sea and forest seaweed, algae and moss, rooftop gardens and foliage motifs.
