Sherwin Williams Goes Oceanside for 2018 Color of the Year

A collision of rich blue with jewel-toned green

A collision of rich blue with jewel-toned green, a color that is both accessible and elusive, Oceanside SW 6496, is Sherwin Williams’ 2018 Color of the Year. A complex, deep color that offers a sense of the familiar with a hint of the unknown, Oceanside bridges together a harmonious balance of blues and greens that can be found in what's old and new.

The color blue evokes a multitude of moods and associations depending on hue, shade, and application. Despite this variety, blues are universally perceived as intelligent, honest, and interesting, which is why it is one of the most beloved color worldwide.

Oceanside's multidimensional, marine-inspired look creates a welcoming statement. Its green-meets-blue tone can also boost creative thinking and clarity of thought or invite meditation and introspection.

Oceanside's versatility allows it to play well with many colors. It is a bright counterpart to equally eye-catching colors like Exuberant Pink (SW 6840) or Honey Bees (SW 9018), or it can rest relaxingly alongside other blues like In the Navy (SW 9178) or Adrift (SW 7608). It is also the ideal companion for corals and copper metallic tones because of its timeless association with nature.
