Last year I shared how much I absolutely adore all things blush… and you all know how much I love gray. It’s kind of the perfect paint color (especially sherwin williams light french gray… it’s kind of my jam)… but this year poised taupe is where it’s at.
With the downfall of beige in the last few years everyone has been falling in love with gray… it was everyone’s favorite new neutral. Don’t get me wrong gray is still hugely popular (heck it’s one of the main colors in my new kitchen makeover) but where do all of the beige lovers go?
To taupe! They migrate from beige to it’s slightly grayer cousin taupe. It’s the perfect mix of beige and gray… not a true beige but warmer than gray. It’s a gorgeous color and this year it’s Sherwin Williams Color of the Year.
