Sherwin Williams – Upward

‘The colour found when we slow down, take a breath, and allow the mind to clear’ – Sherwin Williams. 

Upward is a soft and soothing shade of blue. It embodies a sense of tranquillity and serenity, making it an ideal choice for creating peaceful and inviting spaces. This gentle hue evokes a feeling of looking up at a clear, open sky, instilling a sense of calm and introspection. 

Sherwin Williams’ selection of Upward is no coincidence but a reflection of the current global mood and design trends. As we navigate a world filled with uncertainties and the need for respite, Upward embodies the desire for calm, simplicity and clarity.
