Let Nature Inspire Your Next Painting Project with Sherwin Williams’ 2021 Color of the Year

Sherwin Williams 2021 Paint Color of the Year

Mother Nature can certainly wreak havoc in our lives at times, but she can also inspire a sense of peace and tranquility to ground us and calm our busy minds. We all certainly need that these days, especially as we seek sanctuary in our own homes amidst life’s chaos.

Enhance your sense of calm and add some sophistication to your home by tackling an interior or exterior painting project using Sherwin Williams’ 2021 Paint Color of the Year: Urbane Bronze. This hue’s warmth and nature-inspired simplicity pairs well with other natural elements inside or outside the home, such as wood finishes, stone accents, water features and mixed metals.

Painting with Urbane Bronze might even inspire you to create feng shui in your home, which incorporates wood, fire, earth, water, and metal materials into a particular living-space arrangement to create balance and harmony with nature.

Homeowners interested in creating a more minimalist look often go back to nature to achieve the kind of calming environment that helps rejuvenate them. Use Urbane Bronze on window trims, accent walls, a fireplace, fence, and more to add a rich, earthy tone that appeals to your organic senses.

According to the paint experts at Sherwin Williams, Urbane Bronze is “the new neutral,” a bold, but understated paint hue that works anywhere — indoors or outdoors. It pairs well with other warm neutrals and bone whites, like Modern Gray, or bolder and modern greens, like Messenger Bag.

Here are some of our favorite ways to use Urbane Bronze, either as the primary or accent color, on your next interior or exterior painting project:

In the bedroom 

Paint an accent wall to anchor your bed, then pair it with natural elements, such as foliage, wood, and metal, to really make the room pop.

On your home’s exterior

Urbane Bronze adds a calming sophistication to the outside of your home, and freshens up the walls, trim, or even adds elegance to your front door.

Add polish to outdoor spaces

Blogger Anita Yokota found the perfect polish for her outdoor sanctuary by painting a fence in Urbane Bronze, which she describes as a rich, grounding brown with grey undertones.
