Seasonal Color Poll Results Announced and Quart Sample Give-Away


August 13, 2014 – Rockville, MD – With the launch of the new McCormick Paints website in June, McCormick Paints also launched its first ever Seasonal Color Poll, a way to gage the public’s color preferences based on the seasons by polling for a favorite paint color.

Choosing one favorite paint color can be a daunting task, especially when looking at a collection of 1320 colors.  That’s why McCormick’s in-house color consultant, Liz Stone, narrowed down the choices to four colors that embody the carefree, sensational season we call summer.

Stone selected a pallet of colors representative of summer and in line with current color trends. New Foliage (0400) was chosen for its fresh hint of green that brings the outdoors inside.  Drifting Sand (0218) was chosen to its down-to earth yet beachy look and feel. Water Droplet (0503), a soft blue, was chosen for its calm and tranquil qualities. And Harrow Gate (0230) represented a clean canvas through its gray-beige hues.

The Seasonal Color Poll is a new feature on, and online voting was open to the public from June through August 7, 2014.  The results for the first ever Seasonal Color Poll came in at:

Water Droplet (0503): 43%

Harrow Gate (0230): 26.7%

New Foliage (0400): 19.8%

Drifting Sand (0218): 10.5%

Gaining the majority of the public’s votes, Water Droplet (0503) is the winner of the Summer 2014 Seasonal Color Poll.  In light of its popularity, McCormick Paints is giving away 125 quart sized samples of Water Droplet in REVO Paint + Primer in One, a premium, interior line in either Eggshell or Flat finish.

Your Chance at a Free Quart Sample: Each of the 25 McCormick Paints locations is giving away 5 quart samples of the winning Water Droplet paint color in REVO. Be one of the first five people at your preferred McCormick location to come in and mention the seasonal color poll results, and you will receive your free quart. Limit one per customer. The offer ends on August 30, 2014 or while supplies last.
