Sherwin-Williams’ Color of the Year 2017
Poised Taupe SW 6039
by: Allison Hayes, designer
Sherwin-Williams’ Color of the Year for 2017 is Poised Taupe. We agree with Sherwin-Williams when they describe this shade as a beautiful balance between warm and cool. Although a neutral, this color is timeless yet modern. It is cozy and comfortable, and would adapt well into any exterior color palette, both contemporary and traditional.
If you are looking for a rich, well grounded color we highly recommend using Poised Taupe. This color will definitely make a statement and add a pop of color to your front door, giving it personality.
Below, I have paired Poised Taupe with our Washed White brick, from the Seaside Collection, along with a whole exterior scheme.
