Sherwin-Williams Sea Salt Color Review

Sherwin-Williams Sea Salt Color Review

Don’t confuse Sherwin-Williams Sea Salt with Benjamin Moore Sea Salt.  They are not even close!  BM Sea Salt is a gray with violet undertones.

How does it look in darker spaces?

Sea Salt can take a bluer tone in darker spaces, or with North facing light.  You still see tons of the green though.

What is the closest Benjamin Moore Paint Color to SW Sea Salt?

Benjamin Moore Gray Cashmere (2128-60), and its a pretty good match.  Don’t try to match the color.  Learn more about matching paint colors here.

The Verdict

Sherwin-Williams Sea Salt is a colorful and lovely color that rarely disappoints.  Use it in small doses, unless you LOVE a blue-green color throughout.  Pair with crisp whites and off-whites for trim and ceiling colors.

No matter what, don’t forget to test your paint colors.  It’s a standard best practice.  Whenever I test my paint colors, they are perfect, and when I don’t test they turn out wrong. Learn how to test your paint colors here.

NEVER, EVER use paint matches from a different brand than the one specified.  Results are poor and there are no standards for the sheens.  Even though your painter may truly believe it can be done, don’t do it. See results from paint matching here.
