Sherwin Williams – Fleur de Sel

Fleur de Sel SW 7666 by Sherwin Williams

Fleur de Sel means ‘flower of salt’.

But don’t be fooled and think of the bright white processed table salt that you might find in most kitchens.

Instead, this beautiful, pale, soothing light gray resembles its namesake, the thin crust of salt that forms on the surface of seawater.

A very natural colour that is perfect if you are going for a Coastal Design Style.

Colour Comparisons

Rhinestone SW 7656 and Sea Salt SW 6204

Colour Comparison with similar colours by Sherwin Williams

In the above comparison, it becomes a bit easier to see the true tone of Fleur de Sel. It’s not looking quite as cool as Rhinestone which has a blue undertone.

And you can see that Sea Salt, which is another popular Sherwin Williams paint colour that I have previously reviewed, has a stronger green undertone.

I also have a Perfect Colour Palette for Sea Salt available if this slightly deeper colour is more your style.

When I do Colour Consultations in a client’s home, I always compare colours 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.

Loch Blue SW 6502 by Sherwin Williams

If Loch Blue is a little too bright for you, but you still love the richness of it, take a look at Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball to see if you prefer that colour.

Grape Mist SW 6502 by Sherwin Williams

Fleur De Sel And Grape Mist

While I’m a sucker for purples, this Grape Mist is more of a lavender and reminds me of the wall tile we removed from our main floor bathroom when we renovated it in 2020.

We choose 3 of the complementary colours from my Perfect Colour Palette for Fleur De Sel to create this beautiful palette and pair them with the fabric below.

In the room rendering below you can see how we incorporate the colours from the above palette into our design.

The walls are painted the featured colour Fleur de Sel by Sherwin Williams.

We’ve shown the accent chairs at either end of the table in the beautiful fabric shown in the graphic above.

We placed Grape Mist on the other dining chairs and the bright hue of Loch Blue on the drapery.

Livable Green can be seen on the built-in cabinet that acts as our backdrop for this rendered dining room.
