Sherwin-Williams announces 2018 Colour of the Year

Sherwin-Williams has announced the 2018 Colour of the Year: Oceanside, an opulent green-blue hue.

Drawn from the Unity palette, one of three palettes in Colormix 2018: Sherwin-Williams Color Forecast, Oceanside is a bright counterpart to neon pinks and a natural complement to sandy beiges and desert taupes. It is also a fitting companion for corals and copper metallic tones.

“Green-blues in deep values, such as Oceanside, respond to changes in light, which is a quality that creates dimension,” says Sue Wadden, director of colour marketing at Sherwin-Williams. “It is a versatile colour that works well with other colour groups.”
