Sherwin Williams Forever Green paint color

Color of the Month | Sherwin Williams Real Red

Can you believe it’s July already?! With 4th July / Independence Day coming up soon it seemed only fitting to choose a beautiful red color for this month’s color of the month! Sherwin Williams Real Red (SW6868) is our Color of the Month! This beautifully bright pink-red color is perfect for the summer months because of the amazing positive ambiance it brings when the sun hits the walls. This Sherwin Williams Real Red paint color is fantastic for bringing life back to spaces and making a bold statement! Pair this with neutral colors to create an accent wall, use in home accessories, or use with other equally bold colors to completely diversify a space. 

Pairs Well With…

Sherwin Williams Paperwhite (SW7105) and Sherwin Williams Silverplate (SW7649).

We love how this bold Real Red paint color pairs with a light neutral color! As Real Red is a really bold statement color, it works really well as a feature wall in the main living areas of a home. You could also use this color combination in kids’ rooms and playrooms to add some fun to their spaces. Pair the color with Sherwin Williams Paperwhite for the remaining wall surfaces to create a colorful and bold combination.

If you’re seeking a really bold interior that is deep and masculine, then use Sherwin Williams Silverplate. The combination of the Real Red paint color and this mid-gray shade brings energy and vibrancy to any space. This works well for bedrooms, living areas, home cinemas, or playrooms!

How to use this color in your home…

Sherwin Williams’s Real Red is the perfect bright and deep red paint color for either accent walls or bold allover wall paint. Be bold in kid’s bedrooms and playrooms by creating a vibrant, fun, and energizing space for them.

Alternatively, it’s really easy to incorporate Sherwin Williams Real Red into your neutral interior spaces through accessories, curtains, and area rugs if you prefer a neutrally painted space and like to bring color in through accessories instead. As the color is bold and unexpected, it is fantastic to use as the main focal color to otherwise neutral spaces. Combine with a gray color like Sherwin Williams Silverplate and you have a match made in heaven!

Sherwin Williams Real Red is of course the color of energy, passion, and courage. It is largely associated with masculinity however the pink undertones provide more energy, and therefore can be used with more feminine colors too.

Make this vibrant color last in your home by using it as a feature wall surrounded by neutrals. Add this color back in through accessories to create a cohesive and “well-put-together” interior.
