Millennial pink has had a good run, but as we close out the first year of the zooming ‘20s, our mood has turned a bit darker, and we’re craving colors with a little more depth and complexity. It’s a trend Sherwin-Williams forecasted long before the pandemic, when the brand deemed Naval—an inky, midnight-sky blue—its 2020 color of the year. Now, they’re taking things a step further, announcing an even more intense shade, Urbane Bronze, as the “it” color of 2021.
“The home is now the ultimate retreat from the world, and color is an easy and effective way to create a personal haven. Urbane Bronze encourages you to create a sanctuary space for mindful reflection and renewal,” explained Sherwin-Williams’s director of color marketing, Sue Wadden.
