Inspiration + Innovation: The New Products and Colors of the Living Well Collection

What are the latest advances in coatings and color for 2021? For the answer, we turned to the experts at Sherwin-Williams.

Changing with the times

“We asked a lot of our homes in 2020,” says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. “Bedrooms were turned into classrooms, living rooms into gyms and kitchens into conference rooms. We are now more mindful than ever of how these spaces impact us both physically and mentally.”

The paints and palettes of the new Living Well™ Collection can help people live more mindfully, she says. The collection includes 11 new color palettes and two products that expand the popular SuperPaint line with added air purifying and sanitizing technologies.

Together, the Living Well Collection is an inspired mix of paints and color carefully chosen to invite a sense of comfort, style, and well-being into your customer’s home.
