Sherwin Williams Color of the Year has been revealed and Redend Point SW 9081 has been declared the shade to shine in the year ahead. Running against more than 1,700 shades in the Sherwin Williams paint catalog, Redend Point had fierce competition. What makes this shade so special that a leading paint company would give it an entire year to itself? We’ve got all the need-to-know information, including recommendations on when and where to use it.

What Color is Redend Point?

sw-9081-redend-pointDescribed as a blush-beige by Architectural Digest, 2023 Color of the Year Redend Point SW 9081 does draw the imagination to desert landscapes – unless you are home to some of the most stunning red sandstone formations in the United States. We think Coloradans will find Redend Point to be quite familiar when visiting, say, Garden of the Gods or Red Rocks Amphitheater. While it doesn’t boast the deep red of Kissing Camels, the pink undertones will give you a muted version that fits perfectly within the Rocky Mountain landscape – and your home decor.

Sherwin Williams may not have been thinking of our state’s famous red sandstone when they created the shade, but their description of the color can’t help but make us think of the universal feelings of both longtime locals and recent transplants: “Looking into the distance, we see a destination worth moving toward. It is the beauty beyond ourselves, the warmth of a world where empathy reigns, a distant but familiar place that invites us to arrive with compassion, to take good care—to come home.”

Is Redend Point Neutral?

An earth tone with a reddish hue may not seem very neutral on the surface. However, this muted instant classic carries the perfect balance of subtle color and earthy hue that will give you endless options for furniture, accent colors, decor and more. As Sherwin Williams explains it: “Redend Point SW 9081 is a nourishing and intriguing hue, an inviting neutral inspired by the deep care we feel for our communities, our connections and our crafts. It is subtle, warm and restorative, suitable in commercial or residential spaces where mind and soul can relax and be refreshed.”

Where to Use Redend Point SW 9081?

Now to answer the most pressing question: “Where can I use the 2023 paint color of the year?” With its red tinge, Sherwin Williams’ Redend Point provides homeowners with a stellar interior color that brings the great outdoors inside. Some of the top ways to use the shade indoors include:

Accent Paint Ideas:

Cabinets: Your first instinct might be to upgrade the kitchen cabinets (and it’s a good one). However, don’t forget your living room built-ins, that small desk nook in the hall or the downstairs office! Redend Point paint looks great on them all.
Doors: Accent doors can really pop in houses with minimalist decor and color.
Nooks and crannies: Use under stairs or in other small spaces that need a pop of color.
Furniture: People who frown on painting furniture have never found the perfect piece in the wrong shade. Spiff up that record cabinet or bookshelf with this unique earth tone.

Interior Wall Paint Ideas:

Accent wall: You don’t have to paint every wall in a room with the shade. A single wall, or even stripes, shapes or checkered patterns can make all the difference.
Bedroom: Give your room a soothing shade that reminds you of all that rolls out beyond the walls of your home.
Living room/family room: Redend Point won’t dominate your space. Its light hue will brighten almost any space and its earthy, pale tone will make the room seem wide and airy.
Kitchen: When it comes to decorating the kitchen with the Color of the Year, Sherwin Williams suggests cabinets. But, there’s no reason you can’t leave the cabinets as they are and give the walls a red rock refresh.

Exterior Paint Ideas:


Accent color: Redend Point makes a great shade for accenting other earthy tones, as well as adding small touches of color to trims and decor.
Stucco: Instead of leaning toward a strict palate of pure beige, let Redend Point’s rosy undertones give your stucco a unique hue.
Home exteriors: As far as home exteriors and Redend Point, Sherwin Williams suggests you paint your walls, your outbuildings or any of your other exterior surfaces with the shade of Rocky Mountain magic. It’s neutral enough to give it essential curb appeal, but just different enough to set you apart.
