MODE is a way of being. It’s where and how you are in a particular time and place. It conveys emotion, energy, and stasis. And it’s also a clever acronym for Sherwin Williams’ 2022 Colormix forecast.
MODE is not only an expansive palette of new colors but also an entirely new way of thinking about paint.
As Sherwin Williams puts it, “Nothing is permanent; all is ever-changing. We plan, progress, draft designs—set our intentions—and over time they slowly take shape.”
Though it may be difficult to match a paint color to a particular moment in a life, that is what we should aspire to. MODE enables this process by creating palettes for the energy they imbue, the emotions they evoke, and the way they reference our common culture.
MODE’s four palettes include Method—soft and earthy neutrals with an Art Deco feel; Opus—dark, dramatic tones that convey energy and movement; Dreamland—vibrant colors conveying fresh ideas and fantastical realms; and Ephemera—playing on primary colors and the timelessness of midcentury modern design.
In sum, the MODE collection offers 40 colors—enough choice to find exactly what you’re looking for without making you feel overwhelmed. And each palette aids not only in capturing the right color, but also the right feeling, the right mood, the precise mode of living you’d like it to convey.
MODE runs the gamut of emotion and mood—from the high drama of Opus to the playful gestures of Dreamland; from the calming earth tones of Method to the design-forward Ephemera—there’s something here for every taste. And any moment.
