The Sherman Williams color of the year isn’t a neutral, or the ever popular Periwinkle Blue or even the Revere Pewter.  According to Inman it’s a “complex, deep color that offers a sense of the familiar with a hint of the unknown…”

“People today have a growing sense of adventure, and it is making its way into even the coziest corners of our home.” says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherman-Williams. “We are craving things that remind us of bright folklore, like mermaids and expeditions across continents.  Oceanside is the color of wanderlust right in our homes.”

“Oceanside is perfect for exteriors and interiors, walls and furniture. It paints your dream beach getaway and your Rocky Mountain hiking adventure, your fairy tale fantasies and your daring deep cavern explorations.  It’s a color inspired by travel and mystery – and doesn’t disappoint.”

Personally, it won’t be on my short list of colors that I recommend to clients that are preparing a home for the market.  I believe lighter, more neutral colors are more acceptable to the majority of buyers at this point.   But for those of you that are tired of Revere Pewter, and Grey Owl, this may be the color for you.
