How To Decorate With Sherwin-Williams’ Poised Taupe
Sherwin-Williams announced Poised Taupe as their 2017 Color Of The Year. This up-and-coming hue is a modern take on the greige trend and is, according to Sherwin-Williams’ director of color marketing Sue Wadden, “what happens when cool grey gets together with brown and has a baby.” Have a look through our gallery and see how this neutral shade can add character to any room of the house!
In this space, the rich, earthy tone of the wall adds warmth and lends gravitas to the bleached wood floors and picnic-style table.
The soft taupe hue of the walls adds a hint of color to this bedroom’s neutral palette while still keeping the space serene. “It’s the new neutral,” says Sue of Poised Taupe. “[It’s] classic yet modern, with the perfect balance of warm and cool.”
Loose Roman blinds in a wavy pattern bring visual softness to designer Silvana D’Addazio’s breakfast nook, while a deep purple window seat topped with an abundance of plush pillows in different shades of mauve play off the taupe color of the curtains.
This soft, feminine dining room is made homey with a hand-painted cherry blossom motif over taupe walls. Restrained pops of color, like the rich purple fireplace tile and gold trimming around the room, add a refined touch.
The rich hue of this bedroom’s feature wall pairs well with the other neutral elements in the room, like the crisp white bedsheets and the striped brown chair. A large glass-block window lets plenty of natural light stream through and keeps the space bright and airy.
