Sherwin Williams Forever Green paint color

Color of the Month | Sherwin Williams Lakeshore

Happy New Year! Thankfully 2020 is behind us and the hope of a brighter new year is finally upon us. To brighten up the start of this new year, we’re featuring Sherwin Williams Lakeshore (SW 6494) as our color of the month! This bright and calming color is perfect for the start of a new year and when used correctly in interiors, can last many years. The Sherwin Williams Lakeshore paint color is great for bringing spaces to life with a bold statement! Pair this with neutral colors to create a feature wall, use in home accessories, or use with other equally bold colors to completely diversify a space.

If you’re looking for a similar color in Benjamin Moore’s paint line, check out Benjamin Moore Blue Toile (748).

Pairs Well With…

Sherwin Williams Vivacious Pink (SW6850) and Sherwin Williams Sunflower (SW6678).

We love how this bright Lakeshore paint color pairs with other equally vibrant colors. However, if you’re after the ever-popular fresh and crisp interior, then pair Sherwin Williams Lakeshore with a warming neutral color. The blue of Sherwin Williams Lakeshore helps to create a calm atmosphere and provides a good color to work with – perfect for bedrooms or bathrooms!

Sherwin Williams Lakeshore works amazingly well with Sherwin Williams Vivacious Pink (SW6850) to create a bright and vibrant color scheme! Great for playrooms and kids rooms alike.

If you’re seeking a warmer yet still vibrant interior scheme, then use Sherwin Williams Sunflower (SW6678). The combination of the Lakeshore paint color and this warm deep yellow shade brings warmth and energy to any space. This works well for living rooms, dining rooms and even bedrooms. These are both fun colors to work into sophisticated kid’s bedrooms too!

How to use this color in your home…

Sherwin Williams Lakeshore or Benjamin Moore Blue Toile (similar color) are perfect for either feature walls or bold allover wall paint. This vibrant yet calming color will serve well as a fun feature working great as a bright pop in accessories to lead your eye around the space. This color works well in both light and dark rooms – watch the color come to life in sunny rooms while a more intimate interior can be achieved in naturally darker rooms.

Alternatively, it’s really easy to incorporate Sherwin Williams Lakeshore into your interior design through accessories, curtains, and rugs. As the color is such a vibrant one, it is fantastic to use as the main focal color to otherwise neutral spaces.

Sherwin Williams Lakeshore is of course a classic color that reminds many of us of the seaside, reminding us that warmer and brighter months are coming. It is a great color to blend into your interiors throughout the year – it’s a calming and tranquil one that will never go out of style.
