Sherwin-Williams’ Color of the Year for 2021 is unveiled. The Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year 2021 is Urbane Bronze.
Where does one go for neutrals after a deluge of beige and gray? The answer is Sherwin-Williams’ Color of the Year 2021, Urbane Bronze. Encompassing tones found in stone, metal and wood with gray undertones, the deep, layered hue is minimalistic, natural and serves as a clean slate on which to build a Scandinavian hygge paradise or a luxe transitional-glam moment. Says Sue Wadden, Sherwin-Williams’ director of color marketing: “The home is now the ultimate retreat from the world, and color is an easy and effective way to create a personal haven. Urbane Bronze encourages you to create a sanctuary space for mindful reflection and renewal.” As part of the Sherwin-Williams 2021 Colormix Color Forecast, Urbane Bronze is cataloged within its Sanctuary palette. Pulling from hues that provide calm and wellness, the colors in the collection are made of natural tones that provide peace and nurturing—with names like Canyon Clay and Oakmoss, a deep olive green. No matter which direction you choose, textural architectural elements such as ash wood, travertine and unlacquered brass find a companion in Urbane Bronze. It even makes good old beige and gray look good.
