So I recently learned that Sherwin Williams entire numbering system is in the process of changing! Many of you familiar with the system know it was a 4 number system, and now they’re going to a 5 number system. And the numbers are not similar at all. For example, Pure White was SW 7005, and now is SW 30008.
Translation: I’m gonna have to relearn all of my most favorite numbers again! EEEKKK. Oh well. I GUESS I’ll adapt.
The silver lining? Word is there is about a 100 new colors in this new system.
Oh and these are what the new swatch cards look like:
They remind me of trading cards. I think I kinda like them.
How do you other designers/home renovator/Sherwin Williams paint lovers feel about this? Love it or hate it??
PS. TGIF! 🙂
100 new colors! Yay! I Love it if we get new colors :))
I agree!! There’s always room for more colors!! 🙂
My question is…how do you coordinate colors since there is not a spectrum of colors anymore? Any hints as to how to find colors in the same spectrum. The SW employee had no idea how to do this with this new system. 😦
Just seeing this comment! Boo! I’m not sure about how the whole numbering system is organized now. It will be interesting to see how they move forward with it!
