Colors of the year

Wash your walls in serene blue tones that make your home feel relaxing and peaceful. Check out Upward by Sherwin-Williams for a soft shade with a “hint of a silver lining” or sink into the deep hue of Benjamin Moore’s Blue Nova that sways toward violet.

Warm terracotta shades are all the rage. Brighten up your space with Persimmon from HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams or Pantone’s color of the year Peach Fuzz.

Evoke a sense of nature with earthy greens like Graham & Brown’s muted Viridis shade for inside or James Hardie’s inaugural color of the year, Mountain Sage, for outside.

    From the editor
    With two games down to the Boston Celtics, the Dallas Mavericks return to the American Airlines Center (AAC) tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. for Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

    Last week, we asked you how many combined Mavericks and Stars games have been played at the AAC since January 1 of this year. Only 35% of our readers guessed correctly. The AAC hosted 67 combined Mavs and Stars games in 2024 — well, 68 as of tomorrow night.
