Cozy up to a natural brown whose nurturing shade makes home the only place to be. 

Looking for comfort that can’t be matched? Just like a warm cup of coffee, Java’s rich hue keeps you mindful of the moment. Whether you’re finding joy in the simple things or nesting your home into a sanctuary, this earthy shade keeps you grounded and focused on all things you.

Style Influences

A minimalist look is the key to letting this hue shine, so it’s important to pare down, style seamlessly and work in varying earth tones. Adding a range of natural colors that are light and dark can also help give your space a balanced look that’s calm and quiet.

  1. I love evergreen fog.

  2. I’m working with the SW “Naturalist” palette and need a green-blue for a couple of north-facing rooms that will work well with Shitake or Natural Tan in the hallways and Creamy trim. Pewter Green is too dark and Unusual Gray is too gray in these spaces. Thank you for any suggestions.

      Hello Robyn, take a look at using either Retreat SW 6207 or Oyster Bay SW 6206. These are lighter versions of Pewter Gray and would complement your palette beautifully.

  3. The colors are very sophisticated, soothing, and subtly comforting. I like the way they are matched. Please keep up the lovely designs. Thank you.
