Sherwin Williams Forever Green paint color

Color of the Month | Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black

The warmer weather is finally on the way for us this year, but April can bring some of the worst showers too! That’s why we’re featuring Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black (SW 6258) as our color of the month! Being bold and adding some darker colors to your home can make it feel more grounded and allows you to be more creative with other choices too. The Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black paint color is great for making a bold statement! Pair this with lighter neutral colors to create a feature wall, use in home accessories, or use with other equally bold colors to completely diversify a space.

Pairs Well With…

Sherwin Williams Blithe Blue (SW 9052) and Alabaster (SW 7008).

We love how this dark graphite paint color pairs well with other bright colors. Consider using Blithe Blue (SW 9052) alongside Tricorn Black to make the colors really pop! Blithe Blue is the perfect accent color to Tricorn Black when used with off-whites and creams. The blue tone helps to liven an interior space while providing a calming feel too. This combination is perfect for living rooms, dining rooms, hallways, bathrooms or even bedrooms!

If you’re seeking a warm neutral paint color to add to Tricorn Black, then use Sherwin Williams Alabaster (SW 7008). The combination of the Tricorn Black paint color and this warm cream 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 Tricorn Black or Benjamin Moore Universal Black (similar color) are perfect for either feature walls or bold allover wall paint. This deep slate/graphite gray color serves as a fun feature color to a room, working extremely well as a key color in accessories to lead your eyes 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. You can use Tricorn Black as a bold all-over wall paint to create cozy environments. 

Alternatively, it’s really easy to incorporate Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black into your interiors through accessories, curtains, and rugs. As the color is deep and dark, it is fantastic to use as the main focal color to otherwise neutral spaces. This is the perfect paint color for using on feature wall paneling.

Above all, Tricorn Black is a great color to blend into your interiors throughout the year – it’s a deep tone that will never go out of style, and will keep the rest of your interior well grounded.
