Exclusive Plum, a sophisticated violet, is Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year 2014. The hue, a balance of cool blue and feisty red with a splash of gray, pairs well with a variety of styles to create color schemes suitable for any room.
“This dusky, filtered violet is refined without being stuffy, elegant yet easy, and layered with romantic potential,” said Jackie Jordan, Sherwin-Williams director of color marketing.
Exclusive Plum has an amazing quality and can be adapted for nearly any space, whether used as an accent or for an entire room. Here are some ideas on where to use Exclusive Plum in your home:
According to Max Brannen, Manager of Mount Pleasant’s Sherwin-Williams store on Johnnie Dodds Boulevard, the most popular way to utilize the color is through accent walls.
Most commonly, accent walls are found in dining rooms and bedrooms, he explained.
“For a cozy, masculine den, we recommend pairing this color with accents of copper and well-worn leather,” said Jordan.
Exclusive Plum can also be layered with gold, gray and white for an elegant, dreamy bedroom.
It’s great highlighted against white subway tile and chrome fixtures for a statement master bathroom.
Pops of magenta and chartreuse can liven up Exclusive Plum for a more energetic space and when paired with creamy whites or other neutrals, the mellow yet purposeful purple can turn any space into a refreshing retreat, she explained.
Brannen added that variations of the color can be customized to suit a person’s taste and style.
He said that Emerald Paint is an interior latex finish with a matte finish satin, semi-gloss. It is good for washability and can be used anywhere in the home.
