Not such a fan of cool grey? Looking to get a head start on 2017 trends? Youre in luck on both accounts. Sherwin Williams just announced their 2017 color of the year, and its called "Poised Taupe."

Sherwin-Williams describes the color like this: "Earthen brown combines with conservative grey and the result is a weathered, woodsy and complex neutral that celebrates the imperfections and authenticity of a well-lived life." They referenced a Danish word, "hygge" which they say "loosely translates as cozy, or creating a sense of coziness and warmth. The soft glow of candle-light, a toasty drink, and the company of family and friends is certainly hygge, but this feeling comes from creating the right atmosphere."

Elle Dcors take on Poised Taupe: "like gray and brown had a baby." Sounds about right.

The color acts as a neutral but is a deeper hue than the soft beiges and greys you might typically turn to. As such, it plays nicely with everything from light blue to deep red to white, black, yellow, and navy. And it can be used in every room.

Check out Sherwin-Williams 2017 Colormix to see how it pops against a range of complementary colors.
