Tell a rich story in your home with Carnelian’s vintage modern hue.

A well-storied home tells tales old and new, but it’s never tied to one period in time. Some of the best spaces feature a personally imperfect collection of found or handed down decor that fills your home with the unique character of heritage style.

Style Influences

Carnelian’s nostalgic hue is the perfect backdrop for heritage style to shine. Its rich color can instantly feel modernized when paired with bright metals making it easier than ever to blend the past with the present. You can also pair it with clean neutrals, thanks to a muted tone that plays well with soft hues.

  4. My home exterior is sided in a combination of vinyl siding (khaki beige) and hardiplank. What type of paint will be best? Should I use brush or spray?

      Hi Jacquelyn, consider using our Emerald Rain Refresh for your homes exterior. A combination of brush and spraying would be a good choice!

  5. What shade is carnelian? The photos highlight the pink. Is carnelian black or dark brown/red? Photo puts the cabinet in a shadow. Nothing profiles it. Very poor graphics communication.

    Thank you,

  9. What is the finish / sheen of the color shown in the photos? Matte, semi-gloss, etc.?

    • Sherwin-Williams logo

      Hi there! If you want to achieve a finish such as the one on the cabinets, try a matte/flat finish. Satin and Semi-gloss however will be easier to wipe/clean.
