Coral Reef – Finally A Color of the Year I Can Get Behind!

Just when I was beginning to lose hope, Sherwin-Williams announced it’s 2015 Color of the Year – Coral Reef (SW 6606).

And I love it!  I wasn’t thrilled with Benjamin Moore’s choice of a sage-meets-chartreuse green a few weeks back.

Nor was I a fan of Radiant Orchid, which was Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year (which I’ve seen NO WHERE this year, thankfully).

As a color-obsessed interior decorator, Coral Reef  SW6606 just makes sense to me for this coming year.  It’s juicy.  It’s happy. It evokes optimism, which we could all use about now.

It’s not too red, too orange, or too pink.  It’s PERFECT.  The perfect juicy color to punctuate pastel palettes and to punch up gray and navy neutrals.  Coral looks great with emerald and mint green, as well as spa blue and turquoise.

So I say a big “thank you” to Sherwin-Williams for getting it right with their 2015 Color of the Year, Coral Reef.  You nailed it this time.  Let’s just hope we start seeing this color in retail, where I’ll be snatching it up!

…and after I have just gotten rid of all the coral (and I had lots!) in my house!! Oh,well, I was tired of it after 25 years of seeing it come and go several times so I don’t feel too badly.

It’s about time that there was a good color of the year! That coral and spa blue bedroom you showed is perfection! Those colors are so beautiful together.

Oh yeah! This one gives me hope too. In fact, it’s a color I can finally see using to update and accent my own living room color pallet.

I’ve been pondering a bedroom redo for over a year now and have been stuck deciding what color to paint my walls. I have always loved this color but never thought about it as a paint color…you (and SW) may have inspired me! Now if I can just find some nice bedding at a good price. My taste is way too expensive (Bella Notte).

This colour looks very good. I was looking for a good color to paint my room in our newly bought home in Toronto. Coral Reef (SW 6606) looks a perfect fit. I am not the kind of person who paints house myself, rather use professionals for the work. I hope the house painting company named Fresh Painting which I have contacted to do the painting job has this colour with them. I wouldn’t mind a little extra money spent in getting the right colour paint.
