They are out – already!  Sherwin-Williams recently announced their 2012  colors.  There are four color palettes – which focus in on the Earth’s variety: the rich reds within a flame, the shimmering blues of water, the varied greens of vegetation, and the organic neutrals of grains, woods and dried grasses.  Five colors I previously featured which are part of this mix are Latte, SW 6108, Creamy, SW 7012, Bracing Blue,SW 6242, Upward, SW 6239, and Burgundy, SW 6300.

There are many ways to create an interesting color scheme in your home. Jackie Jordan, Sherwin-Williams Director of Color Marketing, says, “ You can do so many great things with a single color family.”  In  addition, by varying the values, or lightness or darkness of a color, you can create a beautiful space. Also, by using analagous color schemes , or colors that reside next to one another on the color wheel, you can enhance  harmony and balance in your home. For greater drama, you can use two colors that are complementary , located opposite each other on the color wheel.   In my next posts, I’ll show examples of each of these schemes.

If you would like to experience these beautiful colors from the 2012 Color Mix in your home, contact me.  Paint color is the easiest way to update your decor and the first thing people notice in your home.

Thanks for following me. My next post will pair some of these 2012 paint colors with other colors to form different types of color schemes. Will be posted next Sunday! I'm featuring greens on the exterior of a home.
