Sherwin-Williams, a global coatings company based in Cleveland, is celebrating Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto” in their first collaboration with the film studio.

Sherwin-Williams curated enchanting color palettes from the film and explored the Madrigal family’s colorful personalities one lime green, sky blue, hot red, and soft purple at a time.

“The new animated feature Encanto shines a colorful spotlight on what we at Sherwin-Williams truly believe, that our homes are a magical world waiting to be explored,” Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams stated.

Encanto is a story about the magical Madrigal family and their enchanted home in Colombia’s mountains.

The film uses a wide range of colors, which has inspired new Sherwin-Williams palettes that honor each generation of the Madrigal family.

“We could not be more excited to partner with another great storyteller in Sherwin-Williams to extend the story into homes.”

Colors ranged from warmer neutrals like Pineapple Cream SW 1668 and Escapade Gold SW 6403 to brighter pops of color like Aquarium SW 6767 and Free Spirit SW 6973, according to the company.

The company stated: “Step into the colorful world of Encanto by visiting the Sherwin-Williams website to experience:
