Sherwin-Williams' 2018 Color of the Year Is Finally Here — And It Doesn't Disappoint. Move over, neutrals: Sherwin-Williams just announced its 2018 Color of the Year pick and it's the opposite of muted and subtle. The company says when picking a hue prediction for 2018, it wanted to speak to the public's growing desire for color that's "both accessible and elusive." The results: a deep and moody shade called Oceanside. "People today have a growing sense of adventure, and it is making its way into even the coziest corners of our homes. We are craving things that remind us of bright folklore, like mermaids and expeditions across continents," says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. "Oceanside is the color of wanderlust right in our own homes."
Interior Designers Pick Their Favorite Hues From Valspar's Colors of the Year. It's a lot of pressure to pick one color to represent an entire year's worth of interior design inspiration. That's why the color experts at Valspar announced their picks for colors of year — 12 to be exact. Moving away from one-shade-fits-all, this palette promises to fill your home with charm, passion, and energy, no matter which hue you choose. The colors range from bright yellow to bold blue to warm gray, which guarantees there's something for everyone in the lineup. We have our favorites (that Garnet Red is stunning in a formal dining room), but went to the interior design experts to find out which they're most excited about from the assortment. No surprise here that opinions vary across the board, but the best thing is that no one is wrong. For Abbe Fenimore, the designer behind Studio Ten 25, Deep Indigo stands out: "I love the comfortable and classic feeling that this rich indigo brings to a room, and how it's able to complement virtually any color palette or aesthetic. It's a great option for those looking for a color to ground a space, but want something a little less dominant that black."
Unpopular Opinion: Clawfoot Tubs Are Simply the Worst. Clawfoot bathtubs are beautiful; there's no doubt about it. Reassuringly solid, with lovely antique detailing, it's not hard to see why so many bathroom renovators are wooed by their winsome charms. In fact, we've reached an interior design moment in which one would be hard-pressed to find a recently remodeled bathroom that isn't designed around a delightfully quirky vintage bathtub — call it the Joanna Gaines effect. However, we have a hunch that this what's-old-is-new-again fad is on its way out, for one simple reason: we're starting to remember why "old-fashioned" tubs fell out of common usage in the first place. Clawfoot tubs became a part of our collective design vocabulary as a luxury item of the Victorian era. By the 1920's, they were de rigeur, but by the midcentury, they were outdated, replaced with the more efficient built-in tubs of the 60s and 70s. Now, we're not encouraging a return to the shallow rectangular constructions many of us grew up with, but there are a few reasons that the clawfoot tub is not the bathroom design panacea it appears.
