Every year color paint companies release their predictions on color trends. This year Sherwin-Williams gathered 42 trend colors into one master palette — which is also organized into six unique color personalities: Shapeshifter, Wanderer, Aficionado, Enthusiast, Naturalist and Raconteur, and each one tells a story. “Our intent was to ask ourselves, ‘if this palette were a person, what kind of person might they be?” said Sue Wadden, Director of Color Marketing at Sherwin-Williams.
I’m so happy to see that color is making a substantial comeback and all six color palettes are very lovely. I’m sharing my favorites first. At the end, if you want to share your favorite on our comment section, let us know and tell us why you love it!
Here are the six Sherwin-Williams Colormix 2019 Palettes:
1. ENTHUSIAST – “Bursting with originality”
There are those who don’t know the meaning of “less is more.” Passionate and eclectic, they have a calling to be unique. They embrace the details and create scene-stealing worlds that burst with beauty. The proof is in this palette that features bold pops of vivid color, maximum impact and lots of energy.
Bold and vivid pops of color for the unique and passionate enthusiast!
2. SHAPESHIFTER – “Color Of Cosmos”
There are those who always seem a little ahead of their time. Visionary and creative, this palette reaches into the cosmos and returns with a whole universe of inspiration. Atmospheric wisps of colors, grounded by deep, dark blues, capture the unique space between technology and spirituality.
Dark Blues, muted pastels, and a touch of mustard for the visionary and creative
3. NATURALIST – “A Dance Of Freshly Picked Colors”
Walking barefoot in the garden, nature lovers instantly connect with the wonder of the world in full bloom. With roots in the forest, this palette’s colorful tendrils grew in hothouses and conservatories until they became these lush, sophisticated tones. Ranging from mushroom to leafy green to passionate floral pink, they’ve now found a place where they’ll never fade.

4. AFICIONADO – “Tweedy Tailored Tones”
Devotees of the best in life appreciate the well-worn, the bespoke and the rare. Like a bookcase of leather-bound classics, this polished palette evokes nostalgia and timeless tradition. With copper and gold anchored by merlot and deep, dark gray, these tailored tones make everything feel impeccable, tasteful and elegant.
60’s nostalgia and British accents for the elegant and traditional at heart!
5. RACONTEUR – “Telling Well-traveled Tales”
From ancient sagas to today’s motivational speakers, we love our storytellers. With colorful accounts they sum up our very nature and remind us how we’re all connected. Passed from grandmothers, traders and nomads, the tales traveled the world, gaining artistry, until we’ve translated them into a rich and modern palette that spans space and time.

6. WANDERER – “Endless Horizons”
Some spirits can never be fenced in. They need to soak in the blue of endless horizon and the subtle earthy colors of the high plains and desert. Sun-washed and warm, this palette can be seen in the baked clay canyons, worn leather and woven wool blankets of the true New West.
