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." 


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).
