According to the Sherwin-Williams website, “Casting aside the more innocent yellow-tinged greens of the past, this eclectic palette focuses on greens that are lush, moody and complex. It showcases the depths of the sea and forest; leafy motifs; rustic natural textures; and organic elements such as algae, moss and seaweed.”  Some fantastic example of greens are algae, an Amsterdam Boutique Hotel, “Land Carpet”, and a Kartell Victoria Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck.

According to the Sherwin-Williams website,  “Raw materials continue to influence color trends, especially the more subtle hues. Picture a field of grain, pile of pebbles, weathered wood and earthen clay. Gold tones embody the sun and soft metallics — and warm up this understated yet refined palette. Textural elements, such as linen, unfired porcelain and mixed woods, provide subtle tonal variations.”  Some fantastic examples of neutrals are linen, cork, Weitzner Limited Oracle natural wallcovering, and grain.

According to the Sherwin-Williams website, ” Red is the color of love, fire and the earth’s molten core, and it stirs raw emotions ranging from the deepest passion to the softest femininity. This saturated palette includes hues of brilliant flowers and glowing embers. It isn’t a single red, but a deep gradation of fuchsias, red-oranges, violets and delicate pinks.”  Some fantastic examples of reds are a Marion Rose piece of Art, a red gerber daisy, red/pink boutique room, and red lipstick.
