Coral Reef Has Been Named Sherwin-Williams Color of The Year 2015

Coral Reef (SW 6606) has been named Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year 2015.

"The uplifting, vivacious hue with floral notes is the perfect mélange of pink, orange and red that can be used to liven up any space," the company said.

Pulled from the Sherwin-Williams Buoyant palette, Coral Reef channels floral components, which are prominently featured in current fashion trends. Other palette colors are reminiscent of vintage floral patterns, influenced by natural-healing botanicals and the trend for green urban spaces.

“Coral Reef embodies the cheerful approach to design that we’re seeing for the coming year. Its unexpected versatility brings life to a range of design aesthetics, whether traditional, vintage, cottage or contemporary. Simply add this carefree color to your home’s palette and watch your creativity blossom,” said Jackie Jordan, director of color marketing, Sherwin-Williams.

Although Coral Reef can stand by itself on a single accent wall or object like a front door or piece of furniture, is also works with many complementary colors. According to Sherwin-Williams, colors that make it "truly sing" include Cotton White (SW 7104) and Black Fox (SW 7020), as well as other floral hues, such as the Baroness (SW 6837) and lush greens, such as Paradise (SW 6720).

To relax it slightly, Coral Reef works with warm neutrals such as Sedate Gray (SW 6169) or buttery yellows like Hubbard Squash (SW 0044). Driftwood, medium wood tones and metal finishes also complement its flower-garden hue. For vintage quality that’s hard to beat, Coral Reef and aged matte brass make a perfect pair.
