Perle Noir

Sherwin Williams’s color of the month for August is Perle Noir SW 9154. Perle Noir is a rich charcoal color.  Perle Noir is included in the Sherwin Williams 2020 Colormix Forecast as part of the Haven Palette. This color is a nice paint choice if you are looking to add some drama to a space with some sophistication. Apply it as a feature accent wall or paint it above wainscoting for dramatic contrast for an edgy yet classy look. This dark color nicely pairs with light cream colors, simple geometric shapes, and clean lines. Those characteristics can be explored in the curated collection discussed below!

We’re going back to basics. Back to neutrals that is. Inspired by this moody image, here are some paint colors that coordinate with Perle Noir.  Perle Noir pairs nicely with different warmer and cooler colored neutrals. The colors in this palette were inspired by the milky white skies, tan colors of the lighthouse, and the taupe and charcoal colors of the rocky earth. The colors were sourced from the image and then paired with a Sherwin Williams color shown below.  You can check out more info and coordinating colors in Sherwin Williams August 2020 color of the month featured here.

Loving this stunning composition from Art By Monday. This piece, “How Long Have You Been Here” contains beautiful monochromatic contours with accents of rich blue.

 “I am on a journey of discovering my roots. I want to know who my ancestors were and where they lived, their stories and their journeys. This artwork uses pieces of a map to demonstrate my search, and it illustrates the way we have a missing piece due to our history being erased.”
– Stacie Monday, Art by Monday
