|Gentle Medley Palette - 2011 Sherwin Williams Paint Colors|
Last Saturday, Sara , a realtor friend of mine, invited me to her home as the guest speaker at a breakfast she was having for a delightful group of people - her realtor friends, neighbors, and customers. I talked a bit about home staging but concentrated mostly on giving the attendees some tips on decorating and selecting paint colors. I figured I’d start talking as they were munching on delicious French Toast, grits, pastries, fresh fruit and other assorted goodies. I also brought samples of the Sherwin Williams 2011 featured paint colors so they could see these beautiful color palettes.
As promised in my last post, the next few posts will focus on the four 2011 Sherwin Williams paint color palettes. I’ll start with the one that was a big hit with Sara, our hostess. This palette is called Gentle Medley and the colors are described as” fresh, airy and innocent”. “They reflect not just a yearning for youthful innocence and gentler times, but also a refreshing honesty and lack of pretension that are thoroughly modern.” (from Sherwin Williams promotional brochure)
To display the featured colors for you, I used the Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer which is on their website.. You can either upload your own pictures onto the site or use one of their scenes which is what I did.
The first picture shows the featured color Whole Wheat SW6121 on the wall to the left and Décor White SW 7559 complementing it on the adjacent wall. I have seen the Whole Wheat color in one of the condos I staged – it’s a beautiful tan hue and has yellow undertones.

The next featured color which I absolutely love is called Chivalry Copper SW 6353. It has orange undertones and requires the use of a primer underneath to get the correct color. In this picture it is paired with Oyster Bar SW7565.
