August 2023

Color of The Month


SW 7621

Just like the surf that inspired it, Silvermist’s cool tone can look both blue and green. You’ll be ready to embrace both as you drift away on the coastal vibes of this gentle hue that’s so serene, you’ll be dreaming of breezy ocean air.

Why We Love It

See how we brought Silvermist to life in three different rooms.

Seaside Style

The August palette brings the ocean home with just the right balance of delicate hues for creating a relaxed modern coastal space. At the center, you’ll find Silvermist. Its soft, misty blend of blue-green and slate gray undertones gives this hue an effortless versatility that makes it the perfect base color for evoking the casual, calming atmosphere of this look.

Get the Look: Nautical Details, Wicker Furnishings, Greenery

Laid-back Living

Kick back and soak up the easy vibe of a seaside style that’s meant to feel relaxed, refreshing and full of endless possibility – just like the California coast. The beachy feel of this palette really starts to roll in as you begin to play with the lighter coordinate hues that echo Silvermist’s delicate undertones. Layer the soft gray of Drift of Mist with an iconic surf spray-inspired color like Sea Salt for a light and airy feel as breezy and bright as a summer day at the beach.

Get the Look: Ocean Photography, Simplicity, Clean Lines

Inviting Shades

Pay homage to classic coastal Nantucket navy with Big Dipper, a captivating coordinate color that’s just as much at home in Florida as it is in Maine. This alluring hue’s dark blue inkiness makes the perfect moody backdrop reminiscent of the depths of the sea. Embrace the enveloping, cozy feel it creates by pairing with warm wood tones and natural materials, and, to bring a note of harmony, carry Silvermist’s calming tone into the space through accents.

Get the Look: Driftwood, Weathered Wood, Striped Pattern

      Hi Linda! Take a look at: Evergreen Fog SW 9130, Softened Green SW 6177, Green Earth SW 7748, and Clary Sage SW 6178 for some sage green options. It is always best to look at color in your lighting. Order some free sample chips from our website to determine which color will work best for you.

  2. We have SW 7036 Accessible Beige in main living area (kitchen, living and dining). Would Silvermist blend with it for the main bedroom which is off the main living space? I have all the coordinating curtains, etc. that would work well with Silvermist.

      Hi Ann! Accessible Beige and Silvermist pair well together, and should work well in you in your bedroom.
