SHERWIN WILLIAMS SEALSKIN

Today’s color trend is one of my personal favorites. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve used this color in a project. I would describe it as a dark bronze or, maybe a dark brown, warm black or brownish-black. Sherwin Williams calls it Sealskin and it’s part of their 2017 Colormix color forecast. This color is perfect for industrial style and modern interiors. I’ve also seen it used a lot in rustic designs. Let’s have a look at some great design ideas that feature ‘Sealskin’, shall we?

‘Sealskin’ is the dominant color of this rustic style home office. I love the contrast of the white accents against this dark bronze color. The snow scene photography goes great with this look.

The dark bronze throw blanket adds a touch of warmth to the cool tones of this bedroom design. I love the contrast between the white bedding and the dark accent wall. So nice!

This rustic industrial style bar interior is the perfect design for showcasing ‘Sealskin’ accents. The reclaimed wood and rivets on the bar face are just flat out awesome!

Add a dark brown top to an otherwise black outfit for a rustic industrial fashion look…

Here’s another shot of the bar design from above. I love the exposed concrete floors, brick wall and metal accents with dark bronze undertones…

The dark wood beams and accent pieces add a lovely contrast to the white finishes in this guest house interior. I love all the natural textures in this design…

Here’s another dark brown and black fashion combo…

The contrast between the warm wood accents, the white fixtures and the ‘Sealskin’ feature wall is just stunning in this modern bathroom design…

Here’s a similar color combo using leather pieces as well. I love this look!

‘Sealskin’ also works well as tiny accents in brighter looks. This rustic wood box centerpiece adds a pop of color to this white reception table design. So pretty!

Be still my heart! The dark accent wall, the starburst chandelier, the white patterned rug, I love all of this! But, my favorite part of this look has got to be the dark bronze metal chairs. So nice!

Simple but just perfect. The white walls and dark brown wood floors are a gorgeous combo. I like that the designer kept the look simple with just a couple of metal accents and some woven poufs and throw pillows for softness.

This knit throw blanket adds texture and a touch of ‘Sealskin’ to any room…

Here’s another take on the rustic industrial look but this time with white accents for contrast…

I’ve always loved desks with sawhorse bases. This one adds a touch of glam to the look with shiny metal bases and a dark bronze wood top…

Shop this color (some cool things I found on the web)…
