What I love about Sea Salt (SW 6204), by Sherwin-Williams, is that it is a chameleon of a color. It’s blue, gray, and green, all at the same time. This means, it presents itself differently, depending on the room lighting and surroundings. Here are some examples.

If you get cool, Northern light, the room will look more blue.

Fluorescent bulbs will definitely bring out the green.
And sometimes, the surroundings make it look mostly gray.
White trim is set off nicely by Sea Salt. White furniture makes it that much better.

This is definitely a color to test out a few swatches with before committing, but when it’s right… it is so right.
The color is also versatile in the way that it compliments a lot of different types of spaces. This color is equally as stunning in kitchens and bathrooms as it is in entryways, bedrooms, and living rooms.
It’s a great option for the color-shy, but there’s enough depth that even lovers of bright and bold schemes can find something to love about it.
I’ve been eager to try Sea Salt in my own home for a long time, so I’m giving it a go in my bedroom.
Do you file pretty colors away for ‘someday’ too? And if so, which ones? Tell me I’m not the only one here.
