CLEVELAND – Sherwin-Williams introduced Redend Point SW 9081, a calming blush-beige, as its 2023 Color of the Year. The soft neutral color works well for interiors and exteriors, the company says.

"Redend Point was inspired by the idea of finding beauty beyond ourselves. It is a heartening hue that invites compassion and connection into any space," said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. "The color is a natural choice for those looking for a warm and joyful neutral in both interiors and exteriors. Redend Point is a beautiful color and I can't wait to see how consumers play with it and style their spaces."

Sherwin-Williams describes Redend Point as a color that “ignites the spirit of discovery” and inspires deeper connections with others.

To encourage consumers to explore the color and create their own warm and inviting spaces, Sherwin-Williams partnered with Etsy and curated a selection of complementary home décor items.

"Redend Point is an ideal choice for bringing a sense of serenity and nature into any space," said Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy's Trend Expert. "The unique, handcrafted items we've curated on Etsy can complement this soulful hue in almost any room – or even enable you to bring the color beyond your four walls with accessories and gifts."
