This beautiful, rich blue is a big departure from Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year 2018 Poised Taupe!
Oceanside evokes “a wanderlust in an opulent and mysterious shade that serves as counterpart to a range of hues, from neon pink to desert taupe” said Sue Wadden, Sherwin Williams director of colour marketing.
She says people today have a growing sense of adventure “and it is making its way into even the coziest corners of our homes.”
She said there’s a craving for “things that remind us of bright folklore, like mermaids and expeditions across continents.”
Here are some painting ideas using this colour:
Living Room – oceanside adds a relaxing layer of color to neutral furnishings and black and white photography wall art.
The pillows, area rug and lamp echo the color.
A bedroom: Oceanside is a gorgeous color to pair with dark wood furniture and creates a sophisticated bedroom oasis.
Home office: Such a stunning environment that inspires creativity and energy in the work zone! I love it paired with green on the back of the bookshelf and yellow in the area rug.source
Oceanside pops against white trim and balances the heaviness of dark stained wood tones.
In a Dining Room: This color creates a cozy feel in a dining room!
