Colors for 2009

Way back in September, I ran a series of 2009 color predictions from Sherwin Williams. Well, now that it's 2009, these things are no longer predictions and have settled into their roles as color descriptions. I tend to take these things with a grain of salt, but there is no denying that this stuff trickles down pretty quickly and ends up showing up all over place. See if you recognize any of these color combinations.

First up, here's a collection Sherwin Williams is calling Global Tapestry and it consists of:

Enticing Red

Gambol Gold

Basket Beige




Now let me state for the record that I dislike this palette. There are a couple of colors in here worth looking at, Umber and Gambol Gold in particular, but as a group they leave me rather cold. Alexandrite is a green that can't go away fast enough. Ugh! But SW did better on their remaining three palettes and I'll show them to you through the early part of this week.


  1. I do not like this palette at all....very dull...Let's see what Farrow and Ball think or Pratt and Lambert as the 2009 colors to be!

    Have a Great Day!!

  2. I'm right there with you sister!

  3. You might find this site www.genopal.com interesting. It links colors and words in an interesting way.

  4. Hey! That is interesting. I love that kind of stuff --what a cool application!
