Since we are all already over 2020 I thought it would be nice to share what Sherwin-Williams announced as its 2021 color of the year.  It’s Urbane Bronze! Sherwin-Williams says Urbane Bronze captures simple sophistication.

Urbane Bronze

 

Sherwin-Williams director of color marketing, Sue Wadden says “Urbane bronze is a comforting color, drawing from nature for a feeling of relaxation and serenity.”  The gray undertones also give it a modern twist.  You can pair this color with natural materials complementing the shade, including woven textiles, stone accents, wood finishes, and mixed metals. They also suggest pairing it with other warm neutrals like their Modern Gray or Messenger Bag color that has a hint of green.

You can use this color as exterior or interior.  Use it as a primary or accent color in living rooms, bedrooms, home offices, or dens.  Wadden also says that it can be used to accentuate window trim, columns, and accent walls in residential or commercial spaces.

We could all use a feeling of relaxation and serenity with everything going on in the world right now. Why wait for 2021?  Go and grab this color and create it yourself!
