Sherwin Williams’ 2013 Color of the Year

Trends & Events

It’s…Aloe! Specifically, Aloe Sherwin Williams 6464. Not surprising, the 2013 color of the year plays with a popular color as of late, mint, but adds some softness to it and a little gray. What results is a subtle color that also packs a punch of personality.

“This is no ordinary pastel – Aloe is funky and glamorous, demure and free-spirited. While Aloe’s vibe can verge on retro, when paired with caviar blacks, crisp whites or soft grays, suddenly Aloe has a new soul and attitude. And Aloe is highly adaptable, making it a perfect pick for everyday spaces such as a breezy sunroom or a well-dressed living room,” says Jackie Jordan, Sherwin–Williams director of color marketing.

Jordan recommends “coupling Aloe with natural textiles, aged metals or warm wood tones in light to medium finishes. For a more energetic look, Jordan suggests combining Aloe with vintage chartreuse, floral lilacs and vivid corals.” Find more information on Sherwin Williams’ Pinterest page.
