Aloe: 2013 Color of the Year

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 sun-room or a well-dressed living room,” says Jackie Jordan, Sherwin-Williams director of color marketing.

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.

Aloe is perfect for drawing attention to interesting parts of your home like a staircase, kitchen cabinets or even outdoor shutters.
