Sea Salt Paint Bathroom

Hi Donna, I have a southwest adobe house and my bathroom is woollied all kinds of colors so I would like to paint it something completely different and I ran across sea salt. All the trim (wood around window, door and closet louvered door) is painted Dunn Edwards Myth 663 which is a true purple, not grayed. I’m hoping to avoid repainting trim because it’s a pain and I don’t think stark white and sea salt looks very southwest. Anyway, I would love your opinion of sea salt and purple and also what is new with color in southwest decor? Thank you very much!!

I have so many different glass mosaics on my walls it was difficult to choose a color. I finally just had to jump in there and do it. First I started to paint the semigloss version of the same color in the room which is an off white. YIKES two hours later after painting around edges of large wall mosaic and a sleep to wake to see it in the morning I was sorry I chose that color. I did the paint on the wall tests too. Sooooooooooooooooo I got my craft paints out , which I know is a huge no no, and started mixing in my canning kettle until I LOVED the color. I painted the master bath and the color was Apple Barrel Wild Iris mixed in with white. I forget the actual amount because I did start with this off white almost beige but lighter paint. The master bath is of course adjoined with the master bedroom which is painted a mint green. I was worried to see through the green room to the now wild Iris room and back again. It works. The Wild iris is also good with so many of the glass colors in my mosaic it makes them pop , and I hate that expression, LOL So I went onto my guest bath saving back one quart of paint and started mixing again. We are a 90 mile round trip to the paint store so it is not like I can just drop everything and go grab more paint. Guest bath is attached to laundry room through a door of course so I also did laundry room the same color. Looking through my kitchen to laundry room I am loving the same wild iris paint color mixed with the white enough to soon commit to bringing this color into my kitchen. I have a different huge glass mosaic back splash in the kitchen, 22 foot of it or so, and I am sure this color will be perfect. I have to say I first painted this kitchen the light mint green I LOVE so much and it did not work with my back splash. So I painted it back the same light off white the house was to begin with. In some old photos this looked bright white but it is far from bright white. Right now I do not have the time or energy to paint more the yard is calling and I have a sick hubby, Hopefully I will get time to paint within the year. Even if I only do one wall at a time and work my way around. The kitchen is open to dinning room and living room. Living room is the same very light mint green ad master.Enjoying your painting tips here.

Being a color consultant, I thought I should weigh in…Sea Salt has a lot of green in it. It is a beautiful color, but the choice should be made based on what is gong on in the room, counter tops are bossy, are your counter tops white? Is the kitchen open to another room? If you haven’t heard of Maria Killam’s blog, Color Me Happy…you should march right on over to it and sit yourself down and read, read, read. She is the master of color and undertones. She will be your new best friend. Palladian Blue is a beautiful color, so is sea salt…it’s about the undertones and what works with what else is going on around it. Good Luck !

Sea Salt is typically thought of one of those “coastal colors” that is so very popular now. The name even depicts it, “Sea” Salt, and as it should since it’s pretty darn close to that super amazing soft green that you see skimming the top of the ocean when the light hits it just right. This is the color that we all want in our home because it reminds of us that little piece of amazingness when we were on the beach. It’s a good memory and it makes us happy so let’s capture that feeling in our home with color.

Paint colors are definitely the hardest choices in decorating for me! I painted our master bathroom Palladian Blue a few years ago, and it lasted maybe a year. It was just too dark, and I still don’t know why. Lots of white cabinets, a huge white tub, and a bay window that was basically all of one wall. It should have worked, but it didn’t. I am now having trouble choosing a color for a guest room, and I think the problem is the color that is on the wall now. I think I love the swatches until I put them up (all shades of gray) but the walls are the last of my red and gold phase, and the gold just turns every swatch a weird color. Maybe I should paint a large square of white on each wall to test the swatches on? Your cabinets (and your whole kitchen) look great, and I’m looking forward to seeing Sea Salt on the walls. I know it’s going to be beautiful!

Sea Salt “This pale gray-blue is soft and soothing. It’s kind of like sea glass where it can look blue or green — and it works with both. And it’s great with neutrals or cream. I’ve used it in a beach house, a traditional home, a sorority house — so it has a lot of flexibility.” — Janie Hirsch, Atlanta designer

When sampling a paint color on the wall, I like to try at least 2 colors, but 3-4 colors is even better. I was sure that Palladian Blue was the color I wanted, but on a whim, I got a sample of Sea Salt, too.

I have seen them in all lights of the day and night. Sometimes I’ll cover up one color and just look at the other color. When Palladian Blue is the only one showing, it still just seems to saturated. But when Sea Salt is showing, it seems just perfect!

Hi everybody, I am italian, I just moved to the States and we bought a condo. We are repainting the whole thing cause altough it was freshly done it’s a horrible light yellow! I like the farmhouse style and chose Classic Gray BM for the living room. Now I am in the process of choosing a light green for dining and kitchen (white cabinets), I want green to follow a mediterranean olive idea in my mind). But is’s sooo difficult. The colors I like are too dark on the wall (rooms are small and I don’t want to make them look smaller with dark colors). I tried today Guilford Green that look great in the pictures, but is seems to grey on the walls. For the master bedroom I wanted a light blue. Love your pictures with Palladian Blue and Sea Salt, but after trying many colors that appear similar on line but seem too dark in the house, now I was almost convinced to go with Haitian sky, from Behr. But your post put me in doubt again! Which one is actually lighter? But happy at the same time? Thanks!!! Daniela

That’s so fun! I used Silver Sage in my old house, but that was 6 years ago. I’d love to see the two side by side. Sea Salt looks so green on my wall right now, but I think it looks more gray on the swatch.

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.

Sea Salt can also be found in other elements of nature as shown in the photograph I have above. The picture is actually not very pleasant. If I told you what it was you’d be grossed out so I’ll just leave it up to your imagination, after all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder right? I added some bling to make it just a little more beautiful and to add interest – I don’t know – just trying to get creative I guess.
