The Sherwin-Williams color for 2014 is Exclusive Plum from their Balanced Living color collection. Exclusive Plum paired with the right colors can provide a space that is cozy, dreamy, sophisticated, energetic or refreshing.
Over this past summer, I used a color from the same palette for a color consultation project in Florida (view the complete palette). The project was a living room with beige furnishings. I wanted to give my client a refreshing, yet sophisticated retreat that was not the typical neutral palette. I selected Sherwin-Williams’ Mysterious Mauve (one shade lighter than the Exclusive Plum) for an accent wall, City Loft for the remaining walls and Origami White for ceiling and trims. A paisley fabric for throw pillows, in a similar color palette, provided additional accent for this sophisticated space!
