2021 Color of the Year: Urbane Bronze

Carry a sense of nature from the exterior to the interior components of your project.  Nature at its simplest and most elemental — embodying the richness of the Earth’s stone, metal and wood — forges a feeling that’s grounded, meditative and serene.  Announcing Urbane Bronze SW 7048, the 2021 Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year.

Urbane Bronze is Rooted in Nature:

From the exterior curtain wall to the waiting room lobby to the office cabinets, create a warm and welcoming feeling to your latest project with Urbane Bronze.  A refreshing alternative and complement to gray, the hue combines beautifully with pale woods, rich leathers, metals and understated natural stone tones.   Incorporate the beauty of nature with a finish that creates a feeling that's calm, meditative and grounded.

Use Urbane Bronze to Emphasize Shape:

Using strong neutral colors are an excellent way to cut out the visual clutter of a variety of bolder colors, which in turn creates an emphasis on and subsequent appreciation for beautiful lines, curves, angles, and silhouettes within your design.  Using strategic emphasis on only those areas you want to highlight will help to balance architectural complexity and eliminate visual noise.

This color pairs well with Modern Gray SW7632 and Messenger Bag SW7740.
