Sherwin Williams Announces Paint Color of the Year

It is almost November now and the weather forecast is telling the tale of winter around the corner.  While the end of this year nears, planning for next year is in full swing with many businesses and retailers.  Sherwin Williams recently announced (and Elite Pro recently featured a blog about) its 2022 paint color of the year, Evergreen Fog SW 9130.  A gorgeous color that can certainly hold its own, pairing it with other dreamy Sherwin Williams’ colors makes it an even greater paint color choice. 

Paint Color Combinations

Paint ColorJust this week Sherwin Williams listed its top 6 favorite pairings with Evergreen Fog: Shoji White (SW 7042), Urbane Bronze (SW 7048), Accessible Beige (SW 7036), Uber Umber (SW 9107), Woven Wicker (SW 9104), and Bakelite Gold (SW 6368).  While the first three paint colors are more familiar (especially Urbane Bronze as Sherwin Williams’ 2021 color of the year) and have even previously been featured in our blogs, the last three are those at which I’d love to take a closer look.  Warm and rich, they are certainly on trend with popular wood tones, caramel or butterscotch leather, and the revival of gold and even brass tones in design.  

The first paint color, Uber Umber (SW 9107) is by far the darkest of the three and adds in some rich contrast to Evergreen Fog.  It is a deeper version of El Caramelo (SW 9106) and certainly presents itself as a burnt caramel color, not too brown and not too orange.  I wouldn’t choose to paint this on main walls, but it’s a gorgeous complement to Evergreen Fog and I can envision the color in a leather chair or throw pillows, or even outside in a wood front door or painted on shutters.

Woven Wicker (SW 9104) is three steps up on the same paint color strip from Uber Umber.  Reminiscent of wicker or rattan, it is a nice mid-tone color with subtle gold undertones, especially in comparison to its close color neighbors.  Used as a wood-tone for accent furniture inside or trim work or shutters outside, it is another fun option with Evergreen Fog.

Bakelite Gold (SW 6368) is bright and bold.  While Woven Wicker brings out the green in Evergreen Fog, Bakelite Gold brings out the gray, contrasting its warm tone against the cooler tone of Evergreen Fog.  Bakelite Gold is a strong gold color, but pulls in orange tones as well, making it a fun option for a pop of color. 

Experiment, have fun, and enjoy these new color combinations!
