The 2016 Color of The Year was recently announced by Jackie Jordan, Sherwin-Williams’ Director of Color Marketing, and it is… drum roll, please….. ALABASTER!
Alabaster is a fine grained sedimentary rock that comes from gypsum, and is an understated, slightly warm white color. As Jackie points out in her blog post, it is sometimes debated whether white is really a color at all, but ultimately, white is extremely versatile and works well with any designer’s taste, as simple or as eclectic as it may be. Since alabaster is not a stark white, it tends to trigger soothing, meditative feelings, so it’s suggested to pair it with a neutral color palette of soft greys, dusty blushes, or other soft earthy tones.
If you can’t quite visualize how alabaster can enhance your living space, swing by Colorado Blinds & Designs for a color consultation, where we’d be more than happy to help you generate a few ideas!
