Swan Point by Sherwin Williams

Are you interested in decorating your home in a warm color palette? If so, consider picking up a chip of Sherwin Williams’ Swan Point to take a look at. Swan Point is a lovely off-white color with radiant golden undertones. It makes a stunning counterpoint to warm-toned woods like maple, walnut, cherry, golden oak, white oak and red oak. It’s also ideally suited for use with other warm-colored furnishings such as terra cotta planters, copper wall art pieces, brass sconces, golden draperies or any number of creative home accents.

Cashmere Glow by Sherwin Williams

Do you want to try a paint color that’s more colorful than white, yet you’re nervous about choosing a color that’s too bright or overpowering? If so, Cashmere Glow is a fantastic paint color to consider. It’s a bit warmer and brighter than plain white. However, it’s only a few steps more potent than white, so it’s a safe choice in situations where you don’t want your wall color to be overwhelming.

Country White by Glidden

Are your home furnishings predominantly gray, taupe or grayish-beige in color? If so, Canyon Echo’s lovely neutral appearance and grayish undertones make it a fantastic color choice to consider. It complements a wide variety of style aesthetics including mid-century modern, contemporary and transitional designs.
