Sherwin-Williams 2016 Colormix Color Forecast Part III: Nouveau Narrative

DGI’s coverage of the Sherwin-Williams 2016 Colormix Forecast continues! While the Pura Vida collection provides a neutral background and Mas Amor Por Favor offers energetic options, Nouveau Narrative uses darker, more traditional colors for a timeless style. If muted browns and blues are your muse, give this collection a try.


“Relic Bronze Metallics,” “Crabby Apple,” “Renwick Olive,” “Naval,” and “Aleutian” might remind one of an autumn day on the lake, but the collection draws inspiration from the revival of 20th century machinery, “rugged determination, olive and denim, dusky wools, and brass buttons glinting in the sunlight.” Use these colors to create a timeless look.


The beautiful crimson shade of this Geneva Club Chair by DONGHIA matches the “Crabby Apple” shade. With just the right balance of masculinity and drama, this piece is a perfect match for any paint in the “Nouveau Narrative” set. Add a touch of modern to this traditional color collection with these unique geometric bookshelves and branch-inspired table and floor lamp from Arteriors.
