Sherwin-Williams 2017 Colour of the Year is Poised Taupe -- "The New Neutral"

Sherwin-Williams has chosen its 2017 Colour of the Year: Poised Taupe (SW 6039).

From Sherwin-Williams:
"Poised Taupe SW 6039 creates a cozy lifestyle and brings a sense of sanctuary into our homes. It diffuses the stresses of the world outside our doors — so much so that we feel restored and in balance when we walk across our threshold."

For most homeowners, the decision to renovate a kitchen or bathroom is a big one, and an excellent reason for relying on the expertise and guidance of a professional design firm such as Monarch Kitchen & Bath Centre. 

Professional designers understand that the style and colours you select for your home play an instrumental role in ensuring you love your space for years to come.

"The trend to do home renovations that last the test of time is assuredly the reason Sherwin Williams chose Poised Taupe as their 2017 Colour of the Year," says Monarch designer Chantal Miller. "An exciting transitional balance of warmth, modern, cool and classic, Poised Taupe can be paired with almost any palette. Its gorgeous grey-brown tones paired with an intense depth of hue makes this a timeless, rich and incredibly elegant choice for your home."

Whether you prefer a woodsy, conservative, modern, or traditional look, Poised Taupe is sure to be an interior design favourite for many years to come.

Here are some of Chantal's colour pairing suggestions:

Any variation of blue, from light teal blue (like water) to bring the feeling of the outdoors inside, or a variation of navy blue for a truly classic sharp contrasted look.

Wine red would be a bold, modern, "old-is-new-again" compliment. (SW 6314)


Orange would be a fun, funky look anchored by the solid classic nature of this timeless neutral. (SW 6342)

A derivative of a rich, hearty plum would balance and enrich this gorgeous grey hue, bringing out its intensity and depth.

A soft rose colour would be well-suited in a soft and cozy space. (SW 0001, SW 6042, SW 6044)

A creamy white would be a timeless classic of light/dark contrast with an elegant twist. (SW 7008, SW 6042, SW 7004)
