(As a reminder, each Color Palette Monday is a printable palette. It makes a huge difference to look at paint colors that have been printed out on paper, versus your computer monitor. It helps even more if you print out the palettes on smooth white card stock. My palettes should not be used to replace a paint color card, so if you see a color you like, please go pick up a paint color card).
Here is the link to this week’s printable palette: Printable Color Palette Monday #12
So a couple of years ago, Sherwin-Williams Paint and HGTV teamed together to create HGTV HOME Color Collections, which are color collections that have been coordinated together into different design/decorating styles in eight different gorgeous brochures:
I know these collections have been out for awhile now but they are really fantastic paint colors. I always tell people pick up these large brochures from Sherwin Williams if they need inspiration or they are not sure where to get started in choosing paint colors. Many of these colors have become some of Sherwin Williams most popular colors because of these collections. Also, having the brochures in your hands is great because not only do they each have a collection of paint chip/cards in them but they have beautiful pictures showing rooms with the coordinating paint colors that are displayed within each design style brochure.
There are eight different collections based on different decorating styles. My favorites are:
One of my favorite colors in the Livable Luxe collection is Serious Gray:
Serious Gray by Sherwin Williams
and I also love and have used Silvermist several times now and it’s one of my favorite paint colors out there:
Silvermist by Sherwin Williams
Here is an example of Silvermist painted in a space so you can see just how amazing this color is:
and if you’re looking for a true black, I think Tricorn Black is one of the best true blacks out there:
Tricorn Black by Sherwin Williams
Another one of my favorite collections is Coastal Cool:
All of the colors in the Coastal Cool collection make me smile. They are all very calm and serene coastal colors, which I just love. I have so many favorites from this collection but for this week’s palette, I picked:
Watery by Sherwin Williams
Eider White by Sherwin Williams
For a little bolder and brighter colors, the Global Spice Collection has some fantastic bolder colors. I love that they are bold in more of subtle way:
I really love Stunning Shade from this collection. It’s such a rich darker gray/plum combination that is really gorgeous. I want to try and find a place in my home to use this color:
Stunning Shade by Sherwin Williams
What’s also great about these brochures it that all of the photographs of the spaces and furniture pieces painted in the coordinating paint colors shown in the back of the book:
The middle section of the brochure gives us different paint combinations from the color choices shown painted on multiple rooms. This really helps if you are painting more than one room:
This is not your usual boring paint color brochure, these are really some of the best paint color combinations that I have seen. Of course it helps to have the talented design folks at HGTV and the experts from Sherwin Williams partnering and choosing such great colors/combinations. Seeing the color combos sparked some new favorite colors and combinations for me like Tricorn Black! I would have never considered painting a room black until I saw this:
I love the decor placement and room designs in the brochures as well (a lot of design inspiration too):
There are eight different HGTV HOME collections/brochures out right now. For those of you that are really having difficulty finding color inspiration, this is really a fantastic resource for inspiration and color combination ideas. You can pick up the brochures at the Sherwin Williams store and (again) it really makes a big difference to have these brochures in hand versus looking at them online.
Here is a picture of the brochures that I picked up:
I know I sound like an infomercial for Sherwin Williams but I just love these brochures and collections and they are really one of the best paint color resources out there. I hope that this will help and inspire some of you with a new paint color or two! Let me know if you pick them up and which style/color is YOUR favorite!
