Sherwin Williams' Colormix® Color Forecast 2021

Rhythm is the secret to how the natural world stays in step. This same balance applies to our personal sense of nature as we connect with the spaces around us. See it take shape in 40 trend colors, presented in four palettes designed to bring your sense of rhythm to life.

Sherwin-Williams released their color predictions for 2021 by meticulously creating four different color palettes: Sanctuary, Encounter, Continuum and Tapestry.


The Sanctuary palette is all about bringing nature indoors with its remarkable ability to nurture wellness and capture the calm simplicity we're seeking. The warm neutrals and natural tones create a nurturing environment where less is more.

INFLUENCES: Wellness + Biophilia | Nesting | Warm Minimalism | Scandinavian Design


The Encounter palette is described as "layers of local character." Like a treasured heirloom, handcrafted materials remind us that every great story started from humble beginnings. We’re taking in the rich experiences, locally and globally, to create an earthy palette that reflects where we’ve been.

INFLUENCES: Hyperlocal | Modern Bohemian | Natural Materials | Storytelling


The Continuum palette combines synthetic and natural colors to reflect the innovation and optimism of the future - just like mid-century modernists did. As our digital lives blend with our everyday experiences, a daring palette of natural hues and forward-thinking colors seamlessly comes together.

INFLUENCES: Synthetic + Natural | Sea + Space | Sculptural Modernism | Engineered Environment


The Tapestry palette is all about creative expression through personality and authenticity. Lavish jewel tones and layers of style tell a story.. This dramatic palette is the sincerest form of self-expression for a space that chooses authenticity over perfection.

INFLUENCES: Security | Creative Expression | Classic Revisited | Sensory Exploration
