In a bold move away from the old 2017 color “Poised Taupe,” Sherwin Williams has unleashed a riot of creativity with its stunning “Oceanside” as the 2018 Color of the Year. If you’re looking to update your Upstate South Carolina home with a bright, new color that brings with it a whole host of decorating potential, A Perfectionist Touch can bring you Oceanside in all of its splendor.
Oceanside clearly has taken its inspiration from a nautical setting and it doesn’t disappoint with its vivacious mixture of blue-green. Every kind of décor will thrive alongside Oceanside, from contemporary to classic to modern to Mediterranean.
With this host of creativity available in one powerhouse color, you can take Oceanside in any direction that you want. Applied to the front door, this color can give a beautiful splash of color, offering a warm and energetic welcome. It complements many exterior colors, especially earth-inspired colors, and gold or copper fixtures will pop next to Oceanside.
Here are three moods that Oceanside offers:
- Creativity – when applied to a busy area of the home, Oceanside can lend energy and inspiration to the family. An upbeat, invigorating color, this blue-green encourages imagination. Try it in the great room, family room or studio and enjoy the creative energy that is unleashed as you pursue your hobbies, work and activities.
- Meditative – used in a library, home office or reading area, Oceanside encourages clarity of thought. Paired with blues that blend quietly, this color can provide an oasis for all your deepest thinking.
- Restfulness – Relaxing without sedating, Oceanside offers the quiet side of blue with the peacefulness of green. When used in a bedroom, spa bath or sitting room, you can enjoy the tranquility of this beautiful color. A calming effect is a welcome respite from the rush of the world, and your home should have a touch of this.
