Colour Comparisons

As you can see below, it’s when we start comparing colours that you get a much better sense of a paint’s true colour.

Sea Salt SW 6204 and Passive SW 7064

If you couldn’t quite see the green/blue undertone it certainly is more apparent when comparing it to Sea Salt and Passive, two other lovely neutrals from Sherwin Williams.

Colour Comparison with similar colours by Sherwin Williams

Sea Salt is an extremely popular paint colour from Sherwin Williams that also has a green/blue undertone.

As you can see in the comparison above though, it’s not quite as strong or noticeable as it is in Silver Strand.

The paint colour Passive is also a gray but has a violet undertone.

When I do Colour Consultations in a client’s home, I always compare colours with my large colour boards so they can easily see the differences between the paint colours.

When I hold my large paint boards up to a decorative element such as fabrics, wallpaper or subway tile and then swap out one board with another board, it becomes clear as to which colour will work best.

If you think this slightly more subtle gray is more your style consider my Perfect Colour Palette for Sea Salt to give you some added inspiration.
