Color of the Month: Sherwin Williams Amalfi

Welcome to our next article in our Color of the Month series! This month, we're sharing the invigorating turquoise hue of Sherwin Williams' Amalfi.

Just imagine opening the door to a space painted in this exhilarating, inspiring blue. You can just feel how it could help you start your morning with a fresh, upbeat vibe, or help you unwind at the end of the day with its calming undertones.  

Let's explore how you can bring this shade, reminiscent of a Mediterranean paradise, into your own living space with tips from The Cabinet Chic herself!  

Amalfi Color Profile

This cool dark turquoise hue is at once vibrant and soothing.

Amalfi allows homeowners to experience the joyful ambiance the Italian coast from the comfort of their homes.

On the light reflectance value (LRV) scale, Amalfi has an LRV of 11.95%, meaning that it is on the medium-dark spectrum. In simple terms, this means that it will reflect minimal light. As a result, it absorbs more light than it radiates, giving your space an invitingly warm and cozy glow.

The Psychological Impact of Blue in Interior Design

Generally, blue tones, such as the Amalfi, have a calming effect on the human psyche. They speak of the ocean, the sky, and expansive horizons and foster a sense of tranquility, and stability which reduce tension and anxiety.  

Color psychology is a subtle science though, and striking the right balance with a powerful tone like Amalfi can be challenging. Overuse can result in a feeling of coldness, while the perfect touch allows you to channel its energy to soothe and uplift.  

Consider the right mix of natural light and complementary color choices to ensure Amalfi promotes a captivating and balanced visual experience. More on that below!
