Move over gray, taupe is back in business!


The 2017 Sherwin-Williams Colour of the Year was recently announced and this easy neutral is the perfect fit for just about any home’s decor. Poised Taupe is “not cool or warm, nor gray or brown, but rather a weathered, woodsy neutral bringing a sense of coziness and harmony”, according to the colour experts at Sherwin-Williams, an industry leader and the largest retailer of paint and painting supplies in the U.S. 


While shades of cool gray have dominated the world of neutral tones for the past five years, a recent homeowner survey by Sherwin Williams found that people were looking for warmer neutrals to incorporate into their home’s décor, such as warm grays, taupes and beiges. 


If you’re thinking of selling your home, it is widely agreed that a fresh coat of paint is one of the best ways to update a space. It is also one of the easiest and most affordable home improvement projects to tackle in order to see a high return on your investment. A few $30 cans of paint could translate into thousands in your sale price! 


If you’ve recently purchased a home and are trying to make it your own, painting is a fantastic way to make your mark. Warm shades of taupe would work well in the kitchen, living room, family room or bedroom. To add a splash of colour, accessorize with vibrant drapes and pillows or add an accent wall in shades of red, deep teal or even bright yellow.
