The Sherwin-Williams 2021 Color of the Year is Urbane Bronze SW 7048. Every year, Sherwin-Williams designates a "Color of The Year" that sets the tone for the year in design and color. Inspired by Scandinavian design, wellness, and warm minimalism, this color draws from the healing capabilities of nature. Meant to “forge the connection between the modern built environment and the living world,” Urbane Bronze encompasses a rediscovery of ourselves through our relationship to the earth.
Urbane Bronze is the perfect opportunity to introduce Scandinavian design elements, like comfort and minimalism, to your home. As shown in the image below, wood accents, natural colors, and plants bring out the rich earth tones to create a warm, inviting space. The espresso side table helps to anchor the room while the light beige of the couch keeps the space bright. The use of Urbane Bronze as the wall color was expertly used to offset the potentially harsh glare of the sunlight and to tie together all the different components within the room.
Urbane Bronze is also a great color to incorporate into other rooms in your home as well. In this bedroom, Urbane Bronze was incorporated onto an accent wall. It creates a beautiful contrast with the soft hues of the bedspread and balances the warmth of the natural wood with metallic elements. This color is perfect for a master bedroom. Here, it bridges a gap between different design aesthetics such as the boho-esque tassel chandelier and the rustic wood bedside table. The pop of green from the delicate plant truly ties the room together.
The highly versatile nature of Urbane Bronze can be used alongside other Sherwin-Williams signature colors. We love how its earthy tones contrast against the softness of Modern Gray and complement the olive hues of Messenger Bag. This color functions beautifully by itself but pairs incredibly well with a multitude of shades and makes for a great accent wall. Create a cohesive warmth throughout your home with the rich, comforting essence of Urbane Bronze!
Whether you use Urbane Bronze to freshen up your cabinets, your living room, or your bedroom, the 2021 Sherwin-Williams Color of The Year creates the comfort and coziness we crave in our homes.
