Oceanside is deep and luxurious – a simple velvet cushion would be stunning on a grey sofa or a cashmere throw on the end of a bed with white linens.

Saanich in Style: Teal tone tops paint company’s list of colours

Ocenaside chosen colour of the year by Sherwin Williams

By Sheri Peterson

For the Saanich News

Last issue I told you about Benjamin Moore’s 2018 colour of the year and this week I’d like to introduce Sherwin Williams choice. To recap, each major paint company comes up with their colour of the year based on global trends and their own research and forecasting.

The results vary a lot between companies, and for the consumer it can be confusing. Where these forecast colours work well is if you are looking for a colour palette or a new colour scheme, it can make it easier to see what’s trending.

Sherwin Williams chose a colour called SW-6496 Oceanside. It’s a dark, rich teal which is on the bluer side. It’s both traditional and modern, and quite universal in the style it’s applied. It could be used in mid-century modern, Victorian, Mediterranean, contemporary or even arts and craft architecture.

This colour is deep and luxurious – a simple velvet cushion would be stunning on a grey sofa or a cashmere throw on the end of a bed with white linens. This colour is also perfect for all seasons, and painting your front door this colour would be very welcoming.

The Sherwin Williams store in Saanich is on Shelbourne in the Torquay Village mall.
