Sherwin-Williams 2016 Colormix

This week I attended the 2016 Colormix hosted by Sherwin-Williams. This event brought the design community together to view what Sherwin-Williams is forecasting for the next year in colors and trends that they are keeping an eye on. This was my first time attending an event as such, and I must say I was thoroughly inspired. Not just by the colors alone, but by the story that each color collection told. The forecast consisted of four collections. Check out the narratives below from Sherwin-Williams.

My favorite of the color collections is a toss between Pura Vida and Trajectory. Both are complete opposites of one another, but I would say they are the yin and yang of my life. I love the soft tones of Pura Vida that exude comfort, wholeness, and wellness. Trajectory to me represents innovation and vibrancy that makes the world go round. There is a color honorable mention: Relic Bronze Metallic. Of course I would love this color as it is a staple color for my brand.
