Sherwin-Williams Announces their pick for Color of the Year
Poised Taupe “It’s like gray and brown had a baby.” It isn’t hot or cold, dark or light, but something in the middle zone.
Poised Taupe creates a cozy lifestyle and brings a sense of sanctuary into our homes. It diffuses the stresses of the world outside our doors — so much so that we feel restored and in balance when we walk across our threshold.: “It signals a new direction in society’s ever-growing thirst for beautiful neutrals that bring warm and cool tones together to create one irresistibly versatile color.” We have to say, this color definitely strikes the balance between bold and subtle.
Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year
Shadow 2117-30, is allusive and enigmatic — a master of ambiance.
“It ebbs and flows with its surroundings, and light brings it to life. Rich, royal amethyst can fade into the soft lilac-grey of distant mountains or morph into lustrous coal. Indulge your mysterious side. Let Shadow set the mood.”
—Ellen O’Neill, Creative Director
Pantone color of the year
Greenery 15-0343 A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. A fresh and zesty yellow-green shade, Greenery evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.
‘Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose” -Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute

What home trends and designs are we seeing at Walker Woodworking?
After vising the Kitchen and Bath Industry show (KBIS), in Orlando – January 2017, our analysis is that these home trends and designs are right on track. Gray is definitely becoming more of a tan and white cabinets with lights wood tones are here to stay. Look for different shades of blue with the antique brass finishes. Splashes of color both bright and dark are also really popular as well. Here are a few examples from some projects we have recently completed.
Both of these kitchen’s feature white cabinets, and the square style lantern lighting. Especially relevant will be metal finishes. Look for many unique metal finishes this year as they all seem to be increasingly popular now. And no matter which metal finish you chose – it won’t be outdated.
Finally, one of our future predictions, is that cerused oak will become increasingly popular and will be used in projects with a modern industrial design. Cerused oak in a flat finish incorporates a nice modern look without the sharp edges of going ‘all in’ on a modern design. Cerused oak finishes can vary greatly from a dark black with a white glaze to fill in the grain, to a light gray or brown. Cerused oak no matter how it is used, is classic.
