If you ask us what we are doing next week, we will quickly tell you that besides writing for this blog, we have no idea. But, if you happened to ask what color we want to paint our apartments, the answer will be very different and very clear. Sherwin-Williams highlighted 42 colors, spanning six palettes, for their Colormix Color Forecast, and — consider this fair warning — you’re going to want to repaint your entire house. In this article, we will show you the color trends for 2019 based on your personality.
“Our intent was to ask ourselves, ‘If this palette were a person, what kind of person might they be?” said Sue Wadden, the company’s director of color marketing.
1. For the pastel-loving person:
This is Shapeshifter, a palette that features muted pastels with deep blues. According to a statement from Sherwin-Williams, the inspiration behind these colors is spiritualism and healing energy. I think that Elation could be my new obsession. Like, more so than how much I loved millennial pink. Actually, I think I just need to paint my entire apartment in this palette.
2. For the free-spirit who wants to travel the world:
“Sun-washed and warm, this palette can be seen in the baked clay canyons, worn leather and woven wool blankets,” writes Sherwin-Williams in a blog post. The Wanderer palette has subtle earthy colors with a pop of deep blue.

3. For the traditional person who rather chill with a book than Netflix:
“With copper and gold anchored by merlot and deep, dark gray, these tailored tones make everything impeccable, tasteful, and elegant,” says Sherwin-Williams of the Aficionado palette. Personally, this makes me want to drink wine and cozy up with a good read.
4. For the person who thinks there should always be a pop of color:
So. Many. Colors. With bold, vivid pops, the Enthusiast palette is made for someone who’s passionate and energetic. Sherwin-Williams describes it as being made for someone who likes to “embrace the details and create scene-stealing words that burst with beauty.” Mission accomplished.
5. For the in-between person, who wants neutrals but isn’t afraid of some color:
The Naturalist palette ranges from mushroom to leafy green to a bright floral pink, and it is everything. “With roots in the forest, this palette’s colorful tendrils grew in hothouses and conservatives until they became these lush, sophisticated tones.” This palette is like the all-natural makeup look with a hot pink lip.
6. For the person who likes to mix the old in with the new:
Sherwin-Williams says this Raconteur palette takes everything from the ancient ages and translates it into a rich and modern palette.
