'Coral Reef' is Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year

Jackie Jordan, director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams, has shared her thoughts on the Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year, Coral Reef (SW 6606).

"This buoyant, living color is neither too pink, too orange nor too red,” Jordan says. "Think of it as the perfect mélange of all three vivacious hues. Its floral notes lend it an upbeat and optimistic vibe, perfectly suited to celebrate a mid-decade year that’s poised for renewal and revitalization."

While Coral Reef can stand alone, Jordan has selected some great partners for this color, including fluffy Cotton White (SW 7104), sneaky Black Fox (SW 7020), regal Baroness (SW 6837) and fresh Paradise (SW 6720). Relax it by pairing it with warm neutrals like Sedate Gray (SW 6169) or buttery yellows like Hubbard Squash (SW 0044). And for a vintage quality that’s hard to beat, Jordan says, pair Coral Reef with aged matte brass.
