Sherwin-Williams Takes New Approach to the Colormix Forecast

Aug. 11, 2023
The color trend report, inclusive of 48 hues organized by color family, will now be released biannually. The first anthology for 2024 features four chromatic families.

Sherwin-Williams has introduced the Colormix Forecast 2024, Anthology: Volume One, a new biennial approach to the annual color trend report. This recurring color reference will alternate each year with the usual style and trend storytelling that the brand is known for. Looking ahead to 2024, the very first Anthology collection explores the directional shifts of four chromatic families, diving into the meaning behind the chosen colors, their role in awakening modern aesthetics, and what their future holds.

Also available is the Colormix for Commercial Spaces—an exclusive design resource applying the trend-forward collection of Anthology: Volume One to the commercial landscape. As the team of experts craft the Colormix Forecast, they weave key commercial colors into each palette–curated intentionally for designers, architects and other visionaries. These hues are poised to play an influential role in shaping the innovative space of hospitality, education, healthcare, multi-family and beyond. Designers can connect with their account executive for exclusive materials and events, and samples can be ordered with a PRO+ account.

Comprising 48 hand-selected hues, the expertly curated collection will explore blues and greens; reds and purples; deeps and darks; delicate tints. "Through the launch of Anthology, we are thrilled to diversify our yearly color forecasting report to show the depth behind each color trend for the coming year," said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. "In releasing a new volume of the Anthology collection every other year, we hope to bring new color insight to the distinct chromatic families that our designers, industry pros, and savvy DIYers have come to know and love. These palettes–organized by color family for ease of use–will represent the beautiful shifts we are seeing within the world of color here at Sherwin-Williams." Here's a quick look behind each:
