Well since it's October already, that can only mean one thing, it's time for out pals at Sherwin-Williams to roll out their color forecasts for next year. As they are wont, the color team at Sherwin-Williams has come out with four primary palettes. These are by no means definitive, but are meant to act as a springboard for designers to take and personalize these palettes.
I see a lot of these forecasted trends happening already and I'd say that Sherwin-Williams is right on. For the next couple of days, I'm going to run their selected palettes. First up is what they're calling Rooted. Here's what they're saying is the ethos behind it:
mystery, enduring, natural
It's human instinct to seek the safety of the tribe. In today's complicated world, there's something deeply satisfying about re-exploring the world's oldest, most enduring cultures. African, Aboriginal and Native American influences are converging to create a new tribal style with a drumbeat all its own. The colors are rich and earthy, with a hint of mystery. The appeal is as natural as the elements.
Oceanside SW 6496

While no one's suggesting that you paint your house in this palette exactly, what do you think of these colors?
