CLEVELAND - Wood coatings and paint giant Sherwin-Williams has named Urbane Bronze as its 2021 Color of the Year, referring to it as "sanctuary in any space for mindful reflection and renewal."
 
“The home is now the ultimate retreat from the world, and color is an easy and effective way to create a personal haven,” said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. “Urbane Bronze encourages you to create a sanctuary space for mindful reflection and renewal."
 
“Urbane Bronze is a comforting color, drawing from nature for a feeling of relaxation and serenity,” Wadden added. “There’s also reassurance in its sentimentality, with nostalgic ties to the design of the 1970s and ‘90s, but with gray undertones that give it a distinctly modern twist.”
 
Urbane Bronze is "the new neutral that can be used anywhere in the home, inside or out, providing anchoring quality that conveys a sense of comfort and sanctuary in bedrooms, living rooms and dens or calm concentration in home offices.”
 
Urbane Bronze is the company’s 11th color of the year.
