The 2014 Color of the Year is Exclusive Plum (SW6263), a beautiful violet that incorporates blues, reds, and a touch of gray! It’s a bold, yet inviting color that works well in a variety of spaces!

Check out the article below from Sherwin Williams to learn how you can incorporate Exclusive Plum into your décor in 2014!

2014 Color of the Year

Exclusive Plum (SW 6263), a sophisticated violet, is Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year 2014. The hue, a balance of cool blue and feisty red with a splash of gray, pairs well with a variety of styles to create color schemes suitable for any room.


 “This dusky, filtered violet is refined without being stuffy, elegant yet easy, and layered with romantic potential.” -Jackie Jordan, Sherwin-Williams director of color marketing.

Exclusive Plum has an amazing quality and can be adapted for nearly any space, whether used as an accent or for an entire room. Here are some ideas on where to use Exclusive Plum in your home:

  • For a cozy, masculine den, we recommend pairing this color with accents of copper and well-worn leather.
  • Exclusive Plum can also be layered with gold, gray, and white for an elegant, dreamy bedroom.
  • It looks great highlighted against white subway tile and chrome fixtures for a statement primary bathroom.
  • Pops of magenta and chartreuse can liven up Exclusive Plum for a more energetic space and when paired with creamy whites or other neutrals, the mellow yet purposeful purple can turn any space into a refreshing retreat.
