Color of the Year 2016

Alabaster SW 7008

by: Allison Hayes, designer


With December coming to a close I thought it was fitting to feature Sherwin-Williams' Color of The Year for 2016, Alabaster.



Although a neutral, this shade of white is powerful! Alabaster is soft and simple yet able to elevate the most sleek color palette. I love this shade when using as a trim, shutter or window color. Shown below, I have featured this color with our Chesapeake Grey brick, from the Parkway Collection. With its warm smoky grays, browns and darker charcoal, Alabaster compliments this brick nicely.
