Is There Really a Paint ​Color of the Year? Yep! And the 2017 Winner Is… by Donna John

Poised Taupe! Sherwin-Williams says it creates a cozy lifestyle and brings a sense of sanctuary into our homes. It diffuses the stresses of the world outside our doors – so much so that we feel restored and in balance when we walk across our threshold.

Sherwin-Williams says there is a particular beauty to be admired in homes that are allowed to age gracefully and show the wear and tear of everyday life. Lived-in homes seem to evolve harmoniously with their inhabitants. Every scratch, crack and mark records a story, a memory. Their story of taupe is simple: Earthen brown combines with conservative grey and the result is a weathered, woodsy and complex neutral that celebrates the imperfections and authenticity of a well-lived life.

What beautiful words about paint. Makes you want to grab a paintbrush! What are your thoughts on the color of the year, Poised Taupe? Read more about it here!
