Sherwin Williams announced their 2017 Color of the Year last week. Of course, I had to get right on it and gather some inspiration for you in this lovely shade of taupe. Poised Taupe is it’s official name. I have to admit, I’ve never been much of a taupe fan. But, I think that’s because I’m used to seeing it in designs that are almost totally saturated in taupe. When used conscientiously in interesting color combinations, taupe can be quite beautiful. Here are some great designs that prove this point quite well…

This design uses ‘Poised Taupe’ on the walls and accents it with creamy white furniture and a natural wood ceiling. The pop of white is gorgeous!

Here, the designer introduced an even creamier white and more of it. Some beige tones and tiny bits of black accents really add pizzazz to the room.

This look really appeals to my obsession with white rooms. I love the slight accent of taupe in an otherwise white space. Fresh and bright!

This classic neutral hue can also be jazzed up with big, bold graphics. This wallpaper design is over the top!

Again, taupe and white. You just can’t beat it…

Now, this look is getting a bit more blendy but the texture of the brick keeps the design interesting.

Taupe, black, natural wood and exposed concrete. This look is an industrial modern lovers dream come true. Of course, I love it!
