CLEVELAND, Sept. 29, 2020 - Today, HGTV Home® by Sherwin-Williams reveals its trending 2021 Color Collection of the Year and a distinguished 2021 Color of the Year, created in partnership by the design experts at HGTV® and the paint company pros trust. The Delightfully Daring Color Collection is composed of earthy tones inspired by nature with a dose of vibrancy providing a duality with shades that are both energizing and calming.

Available exclusively at Lowe's, the designer-inspired Color Collection of the Year includes 10 complementary colors that are influenced by experiences, virtual and real to create a reveal-worthy style that all HGTV fans desire. Passionate, our distinguished Color of the Year, is a deeply saturated hue that is daringly rich and invigorates the senses. HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams makes it easy to coordinate paint colors and décor so you can create a personal sanctuary tailored to your taste and anchored in design forward trends.

"The current cultural climate has created a state of overstimulation and information overload which has encouraged trends to live life with minimalism. Consumers are eager to streamline and simplify their lives and homes, but that doesn't mean we need to forgo having fun with color," says Ashley Banbury, HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams Senior Color Designer. "When used thoughtfully in design, color can be immersive and incite emotion. Whether it be monochromatic or colors with high contrast... color is now being used as the main accessory in a space to embody a sense of comfort and confidence."

The merging of our physical and virtual experiences has increased the amount of time spent at home, setting the stage to push the boundaries of color in our surroundings. Incorporating colors inspired by nature and using color in exciting new combinations can create dreamlike spaces that transform the home from dull backdrop to an active and inspiring space that fuels creativity, productivity and promotes an inviting and calming lifestyle.
