So excited to share the Sherwin Williams Color Mix 2021 Forecast! Sue Wadden, director of color marketing and a team of color professionals met and researched color, design, and pop culture trends around the world which led to the current color story of the Color Mix 2021 forecast. I personally love all the colors and find that they are all have an underlying soothing effect to them which is so important in our current world situation enduring the Covid pandemic. We know that color effects our mood and its inherently more important than ever today that we feel a sense of calm, peace, and comfort in our homes. I think all these palettes offer just that. Bravo to Sue and the team!!
The color palettes are aptly name the Rhythm of Color. According to Sherwin Williams, rhythm is the secret to how the natural world stays in step. The same sense of balance applies to our personal sense of nature through how we live — and how we design. Fast and slow. Quiet and expressive. Virtual and physical. See it take shape in 40 trend colors, presented in four palettes designed to bring your own rendition of rhythm to beautiful life.

They are an interior designers best friend when it comes to helping clients select paint colors virtually.
Let's start with what I like most about them. I love that they are peel and stick and don't cause any wall damage. No touch up paint needed here when using Samplize. They are created with two coats of genuine manufactures paint from my favorite paint brands Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, and Farrow and Ball. They can be positioned and repositioned on different walls within the space as needed, and are great for the environment as there is no paint can waste. Samplize are affordable and ship within 24 hours to my virtual clients all over the country.

Introducing Vant decorative panels! As an interior designer I was floored how good looking, versatile, and easy these decorative panels are to install on your wall. They can be placed on just about any wall and used in just about any room. Some of my favorite ways to use these panels are as a headboard which can be customized by color, fabric type, and configuration. I also love them as the seat backing above bench seating in a kitchen. The uses of these panels is endless as long as you use a little imagination.
In the concept board above, I used the Vant Panels in the fabric Velvet Dusty Rose to create a modern inspired bedroom with a lively color palette of navy, pink, and coral to accent the dusty rose. Each headboard is comprised of a series of panels that are available in several different configurations. The configuration I chose was Cleopatra. Figures! Since I have always loved her over the top lavish lifestyle! I'm drawn to how tall and wide the headboard becomes once it's assembled. If you're more of a conservative person you may want to go with a lower headboard configuration. You'll find there's a configuration that fits every style. No matter what your style is, the Vant Panels are a great choice for people with a modern design aesthetic. In the video below you will see just some of the ways Vant Panels can be used in your home. Let me know your favorites! If you need help designing a Vant Bed or using Vant panels in your home click the design help link after the video so we can assist you with your project.
