Sherwin Williams' Color of the Year is Boldly Beautiful

Welcome this deep marine shade to your list of color trends.


Step aside muted tones—there's a bold new shade making a statement this fall: Sherwin William’s wanderlust-inducing color of the year, Oceanside. A marine-like blue with undertones of jewel green, this year’s color goes beyond the tranquil vibes of previous more demure paint choices and even is said to increase creative thinking. According to the paint company, Oceanside is “a complex, deep color that offers a sense of the familiar with a hint of the unknown.”


The harmonious balance of blues and greens does well as an accented pop against an all-white entryway, or balanced against lighter bedding on the walls of a bedroom—much like this bedroom makeover featured on Vintage Revivals

The universal color is a versatile option for the brightening of any space as it pairs well with vibrant contrasts like yellow and coral but gives off more mature, elegant vibes when paired with white or traditional navy. Whatever your desired aesthetic is, this shade of blue-green reminds us of the tranquil sea, and therefore, a shade we can't pass up on. This may just become our next color staple.
