Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year


Sherwin-Williams introduces the 2016 Color of the Year: Alabaster.

"A hue symbolic of new beginnings, Alabaster (SW 7008), is Sherwin-Williams 2016 Color of the Year. At a time of interconnected commotion and overstimulation, Alabaster offers a sense of personal solace and revival to weary minds. It is the true neutral to set the tone for 2016." 

SW 7008

Here are some design ideas for Alabaster from Sherwin-Williams:

  • Use it to set the tone for healing, rest and meditation in residential or commercial spaces.

  • Let the color stand by itself as a chic hue in an entry way or lobby

  • Pair with light blushes or grays and bridge transitional and traditional styles.

  • Create a yin and yang harmony with contrasting dark colors, such as Urbane Bronze (SW 7048) or Gray Area (SW 7052).
