What is the Color of the Year for 2017?

Sherwin-Williams Just Announced the Color of the Year

'It's like gray and brown had a baby.​'

You might recall that last year Sherwin-Williams chose 'Alabaster' white as the Color of the Year. Well, are you ready for their 2017 pick? Drumroll, please: The big winner is 'Poised Taupe,' which isn't hot or cold, dark or light, but something in the middle zone. Or, according to what Sue Wadden, the director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams, told the Today Show: 'It's like gray and brown had a baby.'

The company says the hue is a modern take on a timeliness classic and explained their choice in a statement: '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.

'Neutrals are shifting,' Wadden says. 'For five years everybody's talking about gray ― well, they're warming up.' So, basically, if you want to stay ahead of the trends, this color is calling your name. Even though it's not a bright red, blue or other in-your-face hue, it'll make a statement as soon as guests enter your home. If you can't picture what this would look like in your home, allow us to help.

In an entry way with wood floors and white trim it comes off as traditional and inviting — but we recommend adding a few colorful accents (like the orange flowers seen here!) to keep the space from feeling stuffy or boring.

Meanwhile, if you want to use it in your bedroom, try to stick with light-colored floors and bedding so the hue doesn't transform your nighttime escape into a dark cave.

And in the kitchen, this dark neutral will pair well with most existing color schemes (so you won't have to invest in brand new dishes). Here, a rustic yellow and sea-foam green hold their own against the gray walls.
