Global coatings firm The Sherwin-Williams Company (Cleveland) this week again expanded its collection of 2019 color trends with a batch of new palettes aimed at helping professionals transform their client spaces.

The new collections feature 23 new palettes created for a handful of markets, including New Residential, Commercial, Multifamily, Healthcare, Hospitality, Education and Home Owners Association.

“Choosing the right color can help inspire, motivate and guide customers in spaces they encounter during their daily lives,” said Michael Plank, director of color marketing and design services at Sherwin-Williams.

The Commercial collection is described transforming the spaces that people spend time in outside the home and includes the palette Natural Ground, a cluster of earthy tones such as Foxhall Green, Half-Caff and Llama Wool.

“We created these palettes to provide professionals with an easy resource to help them use the latest color trends in every type of project, from a couple’s first home to the latest coworking space.”
