Painters Aloe: 2013 Color of the Year Aloe SW6464

Sherwin-Williams’ 2013 Color of the Year, ALOE SW6464, provides a perfect way to inexpensively perk up your home. Whether you’re looking to create a relaxed, spa-like atmosphere or want to give your home a funky, retro vibe, aloe is the go-to solution for your color needs this year.

“Aloe is highly adaptable, making it a perfect pick for everyday spaces such as a breezy sunroom or a well-dressed living room,” says Jackie Jordan, Sherwin-Williams director of color marketing.

Accessorize with coral furniture, rugs and tabletop accessories to add some elegance to your aloe room.

Aloe can also create a relaxed, spa-like tone, perfect for bedrooms and bathrooms. Accessorize with soft lighting and small potted plants, like bamboo, to top off this look. Paintings of plants work well, too.
