Color of the Year 2016

Color of the Year 2016

As a Shaw Flooring Network Retailer, we have a close connection with Shaw Floors – the world’s largest carpet manufacturer and maker of high quality hardwood, laminate, vinyl, and tile. Their designers are the best in their field and on top of design trends taking place all over the world. This translates into beautiful flooring options whether your taste is modern, traditional, farmhouse chic, casually elegant, or anything in between.
Shaw designers watch the runways, interior design trends, accessories and lighting for the coming year to determine the color of the year. For 2016, all signs point to one look: White Hot.

"It's clean; it's pure," says Shaw color expert Jada McCamy. "It creates a simply refreshing home design that balances our busy lives."

White Hot is stunning when paired with black. Classic when paired with blue. And with today’s performance fabrics – including carpet and rugs – white is a color that can clean easily (slipcovers, anyone?). With White Hot as a focal point, your interior can change easily in the form of pillows and other accessories, therefore providing fresh changes seasonally or when you want.
