GW Homes has long been a Sherwin-Williams partner, ensuring every customer’s home is brimming with high-quality, on-trend color and style. Every year, Sherwin-Williams releases ColorMix Forecast, giving homeowners and buyers clues about the palettes that are poised to take the design world by storm.
For 2021, the four color palettes represent a range of looks, going from tranquil to vibrant and classic cool to bold warmth. If you want to start 2021 off on-trend, here’s a look at Sherwin-Williams 2021 ColorMix Forecast, as well as why GW Homes adores Sherwin-Williams paints.
Sherwin-Williams 2021 Color Forecast
With the Continuum color palette, you get opportunities for drama. The colors run the gamut, ranging from gentle neutrals, like soft gray and warm cream, to vibrant hues, like a dramatic teal and vibrant lilac.
Whether you prefer to deep, richness of Cyberspace, a charcoal gray, the gentle warmth of Moonraker, a buttery yellow, or the coolness of Commodore, a velvety blue, this palette has something for you. It can serve as the basis for a high-contrast design or, by picking and choosing your ideal colors, a subdued palette that still feels dramatic.
The Sanctuary color palette is all about bringing natural colors into your home. The palette features a variety of earthy hues, adding an air of softness to any space while imbuing a sense of warmth.
Overall, the colors are minimalist and slightly muted. The idea is to create a sense of calm and serenity through the gentle use of color, which range from creamy whites to mossy greens and from earthy grays to rich browns. If you’re looking to be soothed and comforted at home, this could be the palette for you.
The Encounter color palette focuses on richness. While its inspirations are highly organic, some of the colors are nonetheless bold. This creates unique opportunities to combine velvety neutrals with stronger hues, adding a sense of excitement that can range from subtle to dramatic.
While the base of the Encounter palette is predominately neutral, it’s punctuated with color, as well. For example, the yellow – Tarnished Trumpet – has a sunlit quality without being overwhelming. Since each hue has an innate earthiness, it allows them to work well together while also standing apart.
If you’re ready to embrace color, Tapestry is the palette for you. This color set is all about joy, happiness, and creativity, brimming with jewel tones on both the warm and cool ends of the spectrum.
What brings the colors together is the strength of the shades. While each hue is vibrant, none overtake the others. This creates a sense of balance, even if you embrace what is practically an entire rainbow of possibilities.
Additionally, the neutrals keep this palette grounded. Greek Villa, a creamy white, supports a lighter look while Tricorn Black imbues drama into any space while bringing the other colors together.
GW Homes and Sherwin-Williams – An Ideal Partnership
GW Homes prefers Sherwin-Williams paint for a variety of reasons. Not only are the colors vibrant and long-lasting, but the paints also provide many other benefits in key areas, reducing maintenance requirements and ensuring a healthier home.
“GW Homes currently offers Sherwin-Williams Loxon Self Cleaning exterior paint on their homes, which is extremely dirt pick up resistant,” said Jack Slaughter, a professional coatings representative with Sherwin-Williams. “Dirt pick up refers to the ability of dust, dirt, and grime to adhere to a painted surface.”
“This paint product offers easy cleaning and reduced need for cleaning over the life of the paint job by not allowing easy adhesion of dirt,” he continued. “In many cases, normal rain will wash the surface clean of foreign materials.”
Homeowners get similar benefits with Sherwin-Williams interior paint.
“The interior walls, ceilings, and trim of a GWH home are painted in no and low VOC paint materials. Reducing or eliminating VOC (volatile organic compounds) and formaldehyde leads to improved indoor air quality for the homeowner,” said Slaughter. “Indoor air quality is further enhanced by the antimicrobial formulation of the wall and ceiling paints.”
“GW Homes knows that the brunt of interior wear happens on the doors and trim of a home,” he continued. “They use Sherwin-Williams Proclassic Waterborne on interior trim surfaces for its hardness and durability.”
At GW Homes, we understand how important having a safe, healthy, and low-maintenance home is to our clients. In accordance with the GW Homes commitment to excellence, every new home we build features Sherwin-Williams paint because we trust their reputation for quality paint products, which is unparalleled in the industry.
