Considering Sherwin Williams Redend Point and wondering if it might work in your home? Let’s talk about this Sherwin Williams Color of the Year for 2023, the undertones, and a sample color palette!
Sherwin Williams has released their color of the year for 2023 and it is exactly what I would have imagined. Warm toned, muted but a pop of color, and a new take on neutrals.
Yes, we are talking about Redend Point! Let’s dive into this color and if it might be something you could use in your home.
Sherwin Williams Redend Point SW 9081
Redend is a medium toned beige color with heavy pink or blush undertones. It is a warm and cozy color with a punch of pink, but a lot of beige and cocoa brown to mute the pink.
Redend Point is in the beige color family.
Light Reflectance Value
Light Reflective Value is the measurement of how much light a color bounces around. This is on a scale of 0 to 100 with 0 being pure black and 100 being pure white.
With an LRV of 30, Redend Point is actually on the darker side of things. It’s got a lot of depth to it. Remember that the color will feel darker in darker spaces and lighter in brighter rooms.

RGB describes the amount of each color – red, green, and blue – present in a color. This is on a scale of 0 to 255 for each color. This is basically the color mix to make the color!
Redend Point has very strong pink undertones. This color really reads as a mauve or darker blush in most spaces.
However, it is a very muted shade, with lots of beige to it as well.
Within that beige there is a lot of brown and almost a cocoa color. This is what helps to keep it from reading PINK pink and just a blush neutral.
It’s very important to swatch colors on your wall to be sure they look good – day and night – in your actual space before committing.
Sherwin Williams wants Redend Point to help redefine neutrals and show that they can still have color and interest.
I think that this is right along with color trends – people are getting bolder with paint colors and what was once considered wild is now a bit tame.
I love this color for a bedroom, dining room, or formal living room. It’s great for any space that you want to elevate and let feel a bit special.

Redend Point is perfect to pair with terra cotta, earthy greens, and warm neutrals.
Remember that pairing Redend Point with a true beige will make this color appear more pink. Pairing it with a terra cotta or blush will draw out the beige and make it look more neutral!
