Mystical Shade SW 6276
Sherwin Williams selected Mystical Shade SW 6276 for October’s color of the month. Mystical Shade is part of Sherwin William’s 2020 Color Forecast and it is part of the Mantra collection. Mystical Shade is a warm purple-gray paint color. This paint’s soft shade and unique coloring make it perfect for a space that’s intended for relaxing and unwinding, like a bathroom, bedroom, or wellness room. This color pairs nicely with warm earthy hues like tan and terra cotta. Below is a living space featuring Mystical Shade on the walls. The color is paired with a sandy-colored ceiling and highlighted with warmer copper accents in the pillows, artwork, and decor accents.

Loving the composition of colors, layers, and shades in this print from Walker Noble Studios.
