Just as the fashion industry selects its “color of the year” to set the standard for the year’s runway trends, Owens Corning shingle colors are used to choose the Shingle Color of the Year, in projecting forecasted housing trends for highest curb appeal that year. Each color selected evokes a specific mood, rendered with expressive images: In 2019, the color was “Sable Black,” advertised alongside a shining black horse, its mane blowing in the wind; in 2020, “Pacific Wave,” next to a surfer shredding foam outside the barrel of a massive wave.
For 2021? The Owens Corning shingle color of the year is “Aged Copper,” a blend combining a gorgeous, deep reddish-orange, sage green, and brown. The result reminds one of walks in the woods, a gliding canoe ride through canyons and heavy foliage. It adds color while maintaining sophistication. It’s a nod to nature in an unexpected way and works with more colors than you might expect.
With a roof shingle color, it’s a trio of featured colors in each shingle. What this means for you is a multitude of color palettes you can choose, depending on which you want to accent. If “Aged Copper” features orange, sage, and brown, you may play up the orange by selecting housing accents in a neighboring shade (a caramel, sunset orange, or rust, perhaps.) Think of terracotta pots, orange planters, or copper trim. Or, the sage green could take center stage, by matching with a sage-colored front door, porch chairs, or potted plants in a similar shade.
Deliberate which elements you want as the “talking pieces” in your home’s overall look. Visit this website for Owens Corning shingle colors ideas and sample style boards.
