Sherwin-Williams' color picks for '09: violet and blue

In keeping with my earlier post about Sherwin-Williams' take on colors for next year, and because I can't think of enough good things to say about their company or their products, here's what they're predicting in the world of violets and blues.

SW expects violets and plums to become more red-based than they are now, they are predicting that they will also appear in more smoky shades. Whether red-based or smoky, look for violets to be paired with neon greens, pinks, greys and blacks.

Blue will remain pretty important and its tones and hues will start to be more influenced by the colors of water than they are today. Goodbye Tiffany gift box and hello Mediterranean Sea.
